I have been pondering that option also, my problem there is that my vet does not do that and as far as I know there are no other livestock vets in my area. He said he may be able to find someone who could do that and I will check into that further. My other problem is that I only have one cow and the vet said with one cow it will be hard to determine when she is in heat and when the right time to AI her would be. She has only come into heat once, I expect any day she will be in heat again and from what I have been reading, I think I could pin down the time to do the AI but then again, I have never been around cattle, Kacy is my first cow. There was a posting the other day about AI and I did learn a lot from that website so it does not sound as difficult determining when the AI should occur as my vet was saying, but then again, I know nothing about this.
