We have had very good luck with artificial insemination. Part of that is due to the way we handle the semen. The tank is on an automatic refill schedule. Richard has had training in handling semen and is incredibly careful with his procedures.
We typically test semen after breeding the doe. In only one case have we found poor quality semen. That semen was purchased from another breeder and we had no control of prior handling. We are not reselling any semen from that purchase.
All semen from our bucks has been processed by BioGenics, and we have total faith in the quality of their work.
