Semen Collection Successes

Postby OogieM » Mon Oct 24, 2016 7:03 am

2 weeks ago we finished a week of semen collections with the USDA NAGP folks. 19 rams over 4 days with a total of 493 vaginal AI insemination straws processed. We also got collections from some particularly rare bloodlines of Black Welsh Mountain sheep that only existed in a single flock. A film crew was here for the first 3 days doing filming for the Livestock Conservancy, a documentary film on rare breeds and genetic conservation and possibly even a PBS series eventually. It was really busy juggling all the sheep in and out and getting it all done.

Will do, they were talking about an episode for each species.
