We love our bulls, but a couple of years ago we made a decision to breed some of cows using artificial insemination. Eamon spends hours studying the bull catalog, gazing at them as if they were suggestive photos of ladies. In fact, if you were a cow, you might look at them with that eye.
A.I. is a good way to improve herd genetics in a hurry. It is possible to buy semen from the nation’s top bulls, when the cost of buying such bulls would be beyond the means of the typical rancher.
