Abstract

In order to increase fertility in modern dairy farming, the interval between first insemination and conception should be as short as possible. Therefore, one approach is to diagnose non pregnant animals early to re-inseminate them as soon as possible. Commercial milk pregnancy assays are available...

Abstract

In a field trial in Germany, a comparison was made of the performance of sows inseminated using the standard method (group 1) or inseminated into the uterus without or with the use of a Gedis pipette (groups 2 and 3 respectively). In the 3 groups respectively, the ease of insemination was average,...

Abstract

The artificial insemination (AI) technology is the oldest but still the most effective reproductive technology. Actually, ∼4.8 million first inseminations are carried out in Germany per year. The number of inseminations has decreased due to the increasing performance and fixed amounts of delivery...
