Semen and Embryos

The United States has set the standard for breeding technology. Bring U.S. genetics into your operation through artificial insemination and embryo transfer.

  • For cattle, using frozen semen from superior U.S. sires in your breeding herd is a cost-effective way to improve herd genetics
    • Frozen semen from over 4,000 bulls is marketed each year — much more than any other country
    • Over 20,000 bull calves are genomically tested annually — and only 1 in 27 are chosen for active AI service
    • This selection pressure results in quickly finding the very best bulls
  • Embryo transfer has become a widely used practice among U.S. cattle breeders; the use of superovulation and in vitro fertilization shortens the generation interval and accelerates genetic progress
    • Genetics from top dams and sires are available through frozen embryos and can be easily shipped anywhere in the world
    • Using this technique, you can conveniently add offspring from top U.S. matings to your herd
