Artificial insemination

Cattle Artificial Insemination (AI)  is the placing of bull semen into the reproductive tract of a cow by artificial means, instead of via natural service. Semen is collected from the bull; it may then be frozen and transported or used fresh. Following collection (+/- processing) the semen is  placed into the cow via the use of a straw-like device.
