Is there any longwinded people out there that could explain the artificial insemination process from begining to end in very explicit detail, from catching the cow to fertilization. Thanks in advance.

I've been told I'm long winded, but the process is actually pretty easily explained. 12 hours after seeing the cow stand to be ridden, remove the semen from the tank and thaw according to the semen processors directions. Dry thoroghly, insert the unsealed end into the gun, clip thr sealed end, place a sheath over the straw and gun. Restrain the cow. Insert your hand and arm into the rectum and grasp the cervix through the walls of the colon. Insert the gun into the vagina and manipulate the cervix over the gun until the tip is just into the uterus. Slowly depress the plunger on the gun. When empty remove the gun, romove your hand and arm from the rectum, massage the vulva. Turn the cow loose. If everything works, the sperm will swim up the fallopian tubes and be waiting when the ovary releases an egg. As the egg passes through the fallopian tube it will be fertilized and slowly continue it's way into the uterus where it will eventually implant. Bingo you have a pregnancy, 283 days after ovulation more or less and you have a calf.

Great job! The only thing I would add is to have a clean shirt and a clean pair of jeans on hand for the job.

What most people do is heat detect for a half hour or so early in the morning, if anything is standing they breed them in that evening, heat detect for half an hour or so in the evening, anything that is standing breed in the AM. During breeding season, we toll the ladies up to a catch pen mornings and evening with a little grain. It boils down to about two mouth fulls per head, it's just to get them used to coming in. After they finish and start heading out to pasture they are usually pretty bunched up, any signs of heat won;t go un-noticed by the other cows. While we have them up for the grain, any that need breeding get run through a side chute and are bred, then turned in with everybody else. Works for us. Obviously, you have to have a way of identifying them accurately. Granted the black cows, red cows and white cows are easy to tell apart, but 25 black cows makes it tough. Ear tags and binoculars works for us.
