Why AI?

Michael Buwembo, says artificial insemination (AI) technology entails collection of semen from the male and introducing into the female reproductive tract using instruments. In piggery, breeding, semen from superior and tested boars collected and used for AI.

“It provides farmers with high quality breeds without having the boar on the farm to mount their sows,” he says.

Tips for vets and farmers on proper handling of semen

-Make sure that the tank has enough liquid nitrogen (LN) because this is what protects the semen. A tank should not be used for more than 10 years old.

-Get out only semen that you are going to use. If it is got out it should not be taken back again.

-Know the holding period of your semen tank. Some can hold semen for 10-15 hours, while others hold it for over 20 days.

-For farmers have contacts of more than 1 or 2 AI technicians so that if one fails to come you contact another. -Closely observe the cycle of your sow so that you inform the AI technician at the earliest time possible.
