Artificial Insemination Tips
CARE OF LIQUID SEMEN Do not refrigerate fresh semen. Store as close to 64°F as possible and avoid temperature change as much as possible.
HEAT DETECTION Heat detection is very important to successful A.I. Without systemic and careful heat detection, optimum time of insemination cannot be determined. You should observe animals for heat twice a day, preferably twelve hours apart. Look for swelling of the vulva, riding other sows, restlessness, clear discharge from the vulva, riding and “barking”. All or any of these signs may be present. Having a boar to use for heat detection is a major plus if an option. Avoid contact of the females to the boars as it is best to bring the boar to the females. If a boar is not available, boar spray can be a useful tool to detect standing heat. When the sow/gilt will stand for back pressure from the, she is then in “standing heat”.
TIME OF INSEMINATION Sows and gilts should be bred 12-24 hours after they show standing with gilts to be bred earlier than sows. A second insemination should follow 12 to 24 hours after the first with gilts again on an earlier schedule. Continue to check heat even after insemination. The sow/gilt should not stand more than 12 hours after insemination. If she is still standing 24 hours later be sure to document for reference the next time that female is to be bred.
