You can use a small file and etch the neck of the ampule to snap it. Seems that the ice water bath was longer, maybe 15 minutes. And if it is a good bull, we used to split an ampule and breed 2 cows from the same one: half and half since you can draw up as much as you want in the pipette.

I thought I still had a hand out on thawing amps but I can;t find it. I would just bet that either youtube or one of the semen companys would have something on it.

If vet can't or won't he/she should be able to tell you who near you might do it for you.
Doesn't hurt to ask.
