Laparoscopic Artificial Insemination (LAI) and Embryo Transfer (ET) is offered every Thursday or by appointment. Does and ewes require 2-3 weeks on a synchronization protocol prior to the desired breeding date therefore scheduling needs to occur at least 3 weeks prior to the desired breeding date. Buck/Rams should be semen tested no later than 1 week prior to the breeding event to ensure the fertility of the sire. Synchronization schedules and pharmaceuticals will be provided once an event has been scheduled. LAI and ET are performed in house. These procedures can be performed on the farm if proper facilities and animal numbers permit. For more information regarding these procedures please call the office.
