Estrus Synchronization and Timed Insemination
The most common synchronization program is the CO-SYNCH protocol with the CIDR.
Here's how it works:
Day 1: 1st GnRH injection, CIDR (progesterone insert) is put in
Day 7: PGF2a injection, CIDR is removed
Day 7 + (54 - 60 hrs): 2nd GnRH Injection, Insemination
(This program usually requires at least one additional farm call when used in combination with the insemination services.)
BioPRYN Blood Pregnancy Testing
We work with BioTracking labs for pregnancy diagnosis. The BioPRYN blood pregnancy test is a fast, accurate method of determining whether cattle are pregnant or not. We take care of blood sample collection, record keeping, packing and shipping, and results as part of the blood test package. to read more about the BioPRYN test.
We now offer semen storage! With this service, you can order semen from practically any bull that you want, and simply have it shipped to us for affordable storage in our liquid nitrogen tank. This way, it will be readily accessible, no matter what time of the year it is needed.
Also, if the semen is used within 12 months, the storage fee will typically be waived!
