This is the first time trying AI, I haven’t had any training on the procedure so I have an experienced person doing it for me. He did use lubricant when inserting the CIDRs. I’m hoping for some good heifers from these matings to improve the herd. My goal is to get to a top notch purebred Angus herd.J+ keep us updated as I will. Glad to answer any questions I can. We have been doing this for the past 11 years or so and still learn more each time. We use a AI rep that used to be an Extension Rep in our area. I promise if you keep looking to better your herd and not give up on this process of AI you will be pleased with the results. I believe there's no better way for a little guy to use big $ studs than to AI. We couldn't afford to buy the bulls whose semen we use.
I will AI breed once and then wait the 10 days then use the cleanup bull for 60 days. When I preg check any opens will need to go find a new home.
