Homozygous Polled Progeny or DNA

You will notice in this catalog that many of the bulls are listed as HOMOZYGOUS POLLED PROGENY (HomoPP). This designation means the owners of the bull have informed us there have been no horned calves born out of this bull on a significant amount of females. That means he is homozygous polled by progeny proof. Several bulls are listed as HOMOZYGOUS POLLED DNA TEST (HomoPDNA). These bulls have been DNA-tested by MMI Labs and by the MMI test they believe to have over 95% probability of being homozygous polled. Tru-Polled Disclaimer: The MMIG Service is based upon scientific, biologic analysis and assessment of statistical probabilities. MMIG believes there is a range of probabilities and does not assure 100% accuracy. The MMIG Service may fail, from time to time, and either (A) not be able to make a determination or (B) make an incorrect determination.

Grassroots Genetics DOES NOT GUARANTEE the status of any of these bulls, we are passing on the information given to us by the bull owners. Please use accordingly. 2

SEMEN HANDLING A unit of semen is a live product, therefore it is important that care be taken in semen storage and handling. Frozen semen is a living and vital part of your herd and must be cared for accordingly. Semen is frozen and stored in liquid nitrogen, which reduces the metabolic activity making long-term storage possible, anything that we do to the semen to jeopardize this low temperature can damage the semen. The following are a few tips for proper semen storage. 1. Store your semen in a liquid nitrogen tank and never let the level of liquid nitrogen go below two inches. Monitor liquid nitrogen use weekly in your tank to detect early warning signs of a bad tank. Frost on the outside of the tank indicates you tank is damaged and may need to be replaced. 2. Store your tank in a protected area away from children and livestock. Your best insurance for genetic progress is a good, well cared for tank. 3. Know where you can find an emergency source of nitrogen and have an emergency plan for semen storage if your tank is defective. 4. Keep a good written inventory of your tank to reduce excessive handling. Every time a cane of semen is handled there is a potential for damage. Do not mix different bulls in the some cane or in the same goblet. 5. When transferring semen avoid doing it in direct sunlight and have the tanks side by side making the transfer in less than three seconds. Warming up the semen and allowing it to refreeze causes damage. 6. When removing a unit of semen, keep the cone 3-4 inches below the top of the neck tube. Higher in the neck tube temperatures are less than minus 100 degrees and damage will occur. After securing the straw, allow the canes to drop back into the canister. 7. When you thaw semen make sure you have an accurate thermometer and keep your water bath at 95 degrees F. Temperatures either higher or lower than this reduces the quality of the semen. 8. Thaw semen for a minimum of 30-40 seconds. Remember that if any delays occur, the semen is safer in the water bath than a gun where temperature shock can occur. Attempt to use the semen within 15 minutes of thawing. 9. After thawing the semen check for proper identification on the straw. Reading the straw after insemination only proves that you have used the wrong bull. 10. Load your insemination gun in a protected area. Rubbing the gun with a paper towel helps reduce cold shock when you load the straw in the gun. Keep the gun protected by wrapping it in a clean paper towel. 11. Follow the recommended insemination procedures. 12. Keep accurate records of inseminations, heat periods and calving dates. All of these are simple procedures, but if they are not followed correctly, you can lose the advantages that breeding artificially provides. Semen is good indefinitely as long as proper storage procedures are followed carefully.
