Semen Evaluation and Freezing
Knowing the fertility of a male is paramount in any breeding program. We are equipped to evaluate semen on-farm or in clinic to help increase conception rates.
As part of our Advanced Reproduction services, we offer semen evaluation and cryogenics (freezing) for the following species:
Caprine (goats), Ovine (rams). These species can be collected on the farm or at our facility. While properly restrained, collection will be performed by electroejaculation a safe method for your animal and our staff. We also offer collection by an AV for those that are trained to jump an AV.
Bovine (bulls). Bulls can be collected on farm when properly restrained in a squeeze chute our at our Advanced Reproduction Center. Collection will be performed by electroejaculation, a safe method for your animal and our staff.
Cervid (bucks). Given their nature, bucks must be tranqualized and then collected. Bucks can be given a reversal agent for a rapid and smooth recovery.
Canine (dogs). Male dogs who have not been collected before are most easily collected by having a female in heat present. Please call for information and to make an appointment at our clinic for collection, evaluation, or breeding. Please note, freezing is not available for dogs.
