Artificial Insemination

Artificial Insemination is a cheaper and effective way of improving genetics on your enterprise. Apart from improving your genetics, it should also guarantee that each mating is carried out using viable sperm, which could not normally be achieved cost-effectively by natural service. The success of the procedure depends on many factors including but not limited to the use of a teaser boar, proper heat detection and timing of service, proper semen handling and transportation from purchase up to when the semen is used, hygiene and good animal husbandry practices.

You can now purchase approved semen from grandparent Large white, Landrace, Duroc and Dalland boars at an affordable fee. Training on how you conduct Artificial insemination is also done at our Arcturus Station. Future research will focus on adoption of semen sexing techniques to manipulate the sex of piglets
