13 - ARTs (Advanced Reproductive Techniques)

Sat Sep 15 2018 (01:09:29)

I finally finished my breeding plan! To celebrate, I spend an hour in my truck talking about Advanced Reproductive Techniques (mostly AI) in small ruminants (but mostly goats.)

This episode builds on what I talked about in the last episode about the hormonal influences of normal goat reproductive cycles and how we use that to build a better goat via ARTs (advanced reproductive techniques) including Artificial Insemination (AI), and a little bit about ET (Embryo Transfer), what are considerations for AI, why AI breeding is somewhat more challenging than live cover, and what my own process is for AI in my herd, and some other stuff thrown in there as well.
