Artificial Insemination

In which method the artificially collected semen kept in the uterus of cow is called artificial insemination. The calf produced in this method contain 50% suchness of hybrid ox. By artificially inseminating of this new cow it will produce a new calf which contain 75% suchness of ox. It takes 8-9 years to produce fully hybrid cow through artificial insemination. The cow containing 75% suchness of hybrid cow is suitable for rearing according to the weather condition and management system of our country.

Difficulty of Artificial Insemination
  • Expert person needed for inseminating and collecting semen.
  • Requires physical cleanliness.
  • It will be best if insemination process done within 12-18 hours of excitement. So find out the actual excitement time carefully.
