very producer knows that running a successful cattle operation takes passion and business sense. While there are many ways to accomplish goals for a cattle ranch to support a family, everything needs to be efficient and effective especially when it comes to breeding. These are just a few concepts the Rittberger family lives by. A second generation ranch in western South Dakota, the Rittberger spread is run by three families. Brothers, Kibbon and Klinton are active in the daily management of the operation their father Fred established years ago. They have been working with Select Sires, Inc. since the 1980’s and have been using the Select Synch TOO breeding protocol for the past four years.

Select Synch TOO is a simple synchronization system that utilizes a customer’s bulls as part of the program. The system boosts the 30 day pregnancy rates in the cow herd as a result of both natural service and artificial insemination. “Our goal is to get as many cows pregnant, as early as possible on the front-side of breeding season,” said Klinton. “We want to make sure everything is as uniform as possible, so everything is consistent when we go to the sale barn.” The brothers agreed the uniformity is the award for getting a higher percentage of their herd bred in a shorter time and the advantage is being able to use their own bulls to help cover any cows that may have been missed during the insemination process.


“With the traditional Select Synch protocol, there was a lot of labor involved,” said Kibbon. “This new process eliminates a couple of those days and we’re getting better results. Before, we were doing anywhere between 36-40 percent A.I. pregnancy rate and now we’re reaching 60-64 percent. Plus we’re finding our calves are more uniform.” By working with Tim Olson, Select Sires Beef Specialist, the Rittbergers have found this breeding program not only gets the job done, but also, it helps the operation’s bottom line. Select Synch TOO is still a mass breeding protocol, but by introducing the bulls into the herd, it gives them a chance to cover the early heats before and the late heats after the A.I. takes place. “The main advantage of Select Synch TOO is the flexibility it provides to ensure you don’t miss any opportunity for cattle in your herd to become pregnant,” explained Tim. “For many beef producers, logistics and labor management are the greatest challenges to implement any synchronization and A.I. program.

missed pregnancies can add up. Having bulls in with the herd for a Select Synch TOO combines the couple days gives us more flexibility use of herd bulls along with the A.I. and may also help naturally protocol to help cover any individuals stimulate some of the cattle.” whose heat timing may be different The Rittbergers run a humble than the herd average. operation and, like many other “We can spend as ranchers, their little as five dollars per time is valuable.

The

Method Matters

The Method Genetics index values are derived from Method Genetics EPDs combined with industry-focused economic weightings. The Method EPDs are generated from a multi-trait, ‘single-step’ genetic evaluation that uses perMATERNAL PRODUCTION INDEX (MPI): The Maternal Production Index is reported in dollars per calf produced from the breeding herd with Angus-based genetics. It encompasses direct and maternal calving ease, heifer pregnancy, weaning growth, maternal milk, and mature size differences in a scenario where replacement females are retained and calves are marketed at weaning.

formance measures, ancestral pedigree, and available DNA genotypes. This single-step approach incorporates the genotypes directly into the genetic evaluation process and was implemented at Method in the summer of 2014.

QPI / % QUALITY POUNDS INDEX (QPI): The Quality Pounds Index is reported in dollars per calf for herds with Angus-based genetics. It focuses on the terminal side of the herd’s business for feedlot gain and carcass merit genetic differences. There are no provisions for calving ease or maternal traits, with the assumption that all calves are under a retained ownership scenario fed out and marketed on a premium quality-based grid.

METHOD GENETICS INDEX PERCENTILE RANKS (%): A numeric ranking of the animal’s Index values on a 1% to 100% scale. A lower numeric value is considered more favorable. For example, a 25% presented with an index indicates that animal is in the upper 25 percent of the animals in the Method Genetics genetic evaluation for calves born in the last five years.

RETAINED OWNERSHIP INCOME (ROI): Cattle producers interested in a complete production system approach from conception through carcass end-point can use the Retained Ownership Income index. ROI ties together reproduction, calving ease, maternal genetic merit, growth throughout the calf’s lifetime, and quality based carcass merit in an Angus-based herd. The ROI is reported in dollars per calf produced in the herd, and consolidates the sub-indexes of MPI and QPI.

Shared Value

Square B’s Quality Beef program tracks value from start to finish.

average, for top-performing feedlot cattle versus their costlier counterparts. “We can look and have our favorite cow, but until we start getting that data back that shows performance level and what product that animal is producing, we can’t prove that cow is creating more valuable calves,” Kasten says. “We have to get it from records and we have to get it in data.” Andrew Beeman - Windsor, Mo

A

fter speaking with his cattle buyers last spring, Andrew Beeman had a decision to make. The third-generation commercial cattleman from Windsor, Mo., was glad to receive positive reviews about how his calves performed. But he wondered if his family’s 600-head cow-calf operation could do a better job of capturing the extra value his calves were bringing through harvest. “We believe in buying genetics to increase the herd’s productivity,” Beeman says. “But we were leaving some money on the table when we were selling at weaning. I felt like we should be getting more.” That’s when Beeman Farms started looking for ways to not only improve herd genetics, but to also track the value of calves through the chain. One program offered both: Quality Beef.

More dollars, same resources “A set of calves may appear uniform, but significant variation can exist in terms of real value,” says Mike Kasten, longtime Missouri cattleman and head of the Quality Beef data-sharing program from Square B Ranch, Warsaw, Mo. “Identifying those high-quality calves and then helping producers capitalize on that value is why Quality Beef was created.” With origins at the University of Missouri, Square B acquired the Quality Beef program to help its commercial producers track calf performance from conception to carcass — realistically. The goal is to capture more value from cattle raised on the same resources. Kasten says that in the average pen of cattle, Quality Beef numbers historically show a gross value difference of about $1,000 per head, on

Partnering to reduce risk Matt Henderson, an Edwards, Mo.-based cattleman and father of five, says he doesn’t have time to sift through mountains of performance and carcass data. That’s why he likes the Quality Beef model. “It takes the same amount of inputs to raise a cow that’s going to produce a subpar calf as it does to raise a cow that will benefit your program on the back end,” he says. “This program will give me genetic recommendations based on the revenue a cow is generating for me. And data collection isn’t a burden because Quality Beef now helps me to do that. They’re doing all the legwork.” Quality Beef starts at the beginning, assisting producers in matching genetics to the existing herd, then partnering with Select Sires to develop a fixed-time A.I. program. Cows are ultrasounded 90 days post-breeding to record conception rates and to track fertility. Once born, calves are tagged with EID for seamless tracking of weaning weights and other performance measures, and later, gain and feed conversion. Producers determine what retained ownership situation works best for their individual programs and have the option to partner with Square B and the feedyard on calves through harvest. Henderson says that offers peace of mind. “We haven’t retained ownership before, so I feel really good about that option. I’m not out

Mike Kasten sharing the program

there alone doing this. I have a genetic supplier who believes in this program enough that they’ll invest in my cattle,” Henderson says. “They’re committed to me just as much as I’m committed to them.” Square B owner Brian Bell says that concept is at the heart of Quality Beef. Once harvest data is available, producers can make keepcull decisions and determine which bulls to use during the next breeding season. “That’s why we say ‘your choice is our obligation,’” Bell explains. “You’re going to move the needle on quality of female. You’re going to move the needle on quality

of carcass. And you’re going to get all the information back that you need to make good decisions going forward.” Henderson’s decisions start with a strong maternal component. “I like Square B’s emphasis on the maternal side as well,” he says. “You can’t look at one trait and build on it alone. You have to start with a good, solid cow and look at every aspect.”

The payoff Beeman and Henderson bred their females this fall as the first step in the Quality Beef program. And, while it will be more than two years before they get carcass data back on their calves, they know improvement in the cattle business is a long-term proposition. “We’ve got to start making change now if we want to see a payoff down the road,” Beeman says. “The industry pays for quality, and that’s why we were seeking a retained ownership opportunity. I don’t think we will stay profitable 20 to 30 years from now if we aren’t producing quality beef.” Henderson agrees. “Through Quality Beef and Select Sires, you’re partnering with guys that are the best in the industry. That’s what you want when you’re talking about your livelihood.”

Producers interested in the program should contact Mike Kasten at 573-979-0889 or Brian Bell at 660-438-2188. Quality Beef is beginning the process of enrolling commercial producers for 2018 breeding seasons.

“ CowManager allows me to keep a good

handle on what is going on with cows or heifers in heat without being there to watch them. I really like the CowManager app. I am able to watch the alert data all day long. The information provided allows me to determine when to breed cows based on the data. With the help of CowManager, we were able to get an A.I. service into nearly every cow and heifer before they went to summer pasture with clean-up bulls. I am looking forward to using CowManager in 2018 to improve our success in putting in embryos. I like this system a lot and have recommended it to other beef cattle owners.”

ncrease the value of your herd from top to bottom. Together with a Select Sires representative, develop a breeding strategy based on your herd inventory and your goals. Once the genetic merit of each animal has been determined, establish a genetic development plan, which may include gender SELECTed™ semen use on the highestvalue heifers, use of superior-genetic sires on the top females for faster genetic gain, and use of Select Sires’ beef semen on lower-merit, less-profitable cows to produce a more valuable calf for the beef market.

SM

In addition to the wide selection of Select Sires beef genetics, we have teamed up with Wulf Cattle to offer the Breeding to Feeding program, a way for you to create and market valuable feeder calves.

◊ Rebel brings all the traits to the table that make Red Angus cattle great: calving ease, maternal strength and marbling. ◊ He is the ideal Red Angus sire for commercial heifer projects; offering sleep-all-night calving ease and excellent calf vigor at birth. He ranks in the top 1 percent of breed for CED and 5 percent for BW. ◊ In addition to calving ease, he offers lots of maternal value ranking in the top 3 percent for HB and 5 percent for Stay. ◊ Excels in all the economically relevant traits for beef production while creating functional cattle with exceptional disposition and feet. ◊ Sold originally as a range bull, Rebel’s multi-trait superiority couldn’t hide from Schuler’s structured progeny tests or large equal-opportunity contemporary groups.

elect Sires has earned a reputation over the years of having the most fertile semen in the A.I. industry. The worthiness of this reputation has been consistently validated in recent years by national (Sire Conception Rate, SCR) and regional (Agritech Analytics, ATA) sire fertility comparisons. So what’s our secret? How do we consistently achieve such impressive fertility rankings? Honestly, it is probably not a single thing that we do but rather it is the composite results of several big and little things consistently “done right!” Technology - Whenever our sire fertility is discussed, our technology adoption over the years in semen processing and quality control is often the first target of credit. Without question, we have invested considerable effort in research and development of novel extender formulations and processing procedures. Implementation of flow cytometry and computerized sperm motion assessment by highly trained employees ensures only the best and most fertile semen reaches our salable inventory. No question,

technology adoption is an important component of our fertility success, but it is more than just that. Sire Health - Quality semen production starts with a healthy sire. Sire health starts at the farm of origin and continues with adequate care upon arrival at Select Sires. Our beef sires come to us from a variety of environments and management styles, leading us to develop state-of-the-art management procedures and housing facilities. Before entering the resident herd for semen production, these young sires must pass extensive (Certified Semen Services, CSS) health testing protocols to ensure semen is safe and diseasefree for use in A.I. Throughout their life, bulls continue to receive semi-annual health testing that goes far beyond the minimum CSS requirements for the industry. No question, sire health is an important

component of our fertility success, but it is more than just that. Sire Nutrition - Feeding bulls for optimum semen production is not a subject that you can find lots university research to help you with. Nutrition can have a huge impact on semen production and quality. Overconditioned bulls often have semen quality issues and some common feed ingredients for ‘onfarm’ rations can have a negative impact on semen quality. Bulls can be highly sensitive to feed toxins, mycotoxins, or other components found in feeds. Select Sires’ bull nutrition team have decades of trial and error experience learning what to do (and what not to do) in feeding sires for optimum semen production. No question, sire nutrition is an important component of our fertility success, but it is more than just that. Source: Dalebanks Angus, KS

Sire comfort - Every cattleman in the world knows the importance of cow care and comfort to productivity.


It’s more than just what is “inside” the straw.

Sires are no different. With our growth over the years, Select Sires has had the opportunity to add many new production facilities. With each new addition, experience from prior facilities is used to incorporate more optimum designs. Stall design, bedding type and frequency, and ventilation are all important considerations. Many of Select Sires barns are air conditioned to maintain sire comfort and optimum semen production through the summer months. No question, sire comfort is an important component of our fertility success, but it is more than just that. Sire selection - All of the above would be pretty worthless if Select Sires did not have the genetic offerings dairy and beef producers wanted to purchase. Not only have our geneticists done an incredible job of stacking the genetic rankings with Select Sires bulls, but they have also worked closely with the production team to cull bulls that appear destined for semen quality and fertility problems. No question, sire selection is an important component of our fertility success, but it is more

than just that.

Expected Progeny Differences Expected Progeny Difference (EPD) - The expected difference in performance of a bull’s progeny compared to the performance of another sire’s progeny. Accuracy (Acc.) - A measure of reliability of an EPD expressed between 0 and 1.0. Accuracies closer to 1.0 means the EPD is a more reliable estimate of a sire’s true genetic value for the trait. Proof Positive - Bulls that are .85 or higher accuracy for Birth Weight EPD. TMProof Positive is a trademark of Select Sires Inc. % Rank - Based on percentages, this indicates where a bull’s EPD ranks him in the entire population of his respective breed. Calving Ease Direct (CED) - is the difference in percentage of unassisted births when a sire is bred to first calf heifers. A higher number is desirable. Birth Weight (BW) - predicts the difference in average birth weight of a bull’s calves compared to calves of another bull. Reported in pounds, a lower number is desirable. Weaning Weight (WW) - predicts the difference in average 205-day weight of a bull’s progeny compared to calves of another bull. Reported in pounds, a higher number is desirable. Yearling Weight (YW) - predicts the difference in average 365-day weight of a bull’s progeny compared to progeny of another bull. Reported in pounds, a higher number is generally desirable. Yearling Height (YH) - The YH EPD predicts the difference in yearling hip height of a bull’s progeny compared to progeny of another bull. Reported in inches, ideal values vary depending on production environment. Residual Average Daily Gain (RADG) - expressed in pounds per day, is a predictor of a sire’s genetic ability for postweaning gain in future progeny compared to that of other sires, given a constant amount of feed consumed. Dry Matter Intake (DMI) - expressed in pounds per day, is a predictor of difference transmitting ability for feed intake during the postweaning phase, compared to that of other sires. Scrotal Circumference (SC) - The SC EPD predicts the difference in yearling scrotal circumference of a bull’s male progeny compared to progeny of another bull. Reported in centimeters, a larger number is desirable. Docility (Doc) - is expressed as a difference in yearling cattle temperament, with a higher value indicating more favorable docility. It predicts the average difference of progeny from a sire in comparison with another sire’s calves. In herds where temperament problems are not an issue, this expected difference would not be realized. Calving Ease Maternal (CEM or MCE) - is expressed as a difference in percentage of unassisted births of a sire’s daughters as first-calf heifers when compared to daughters of other sires. Reported as a percentage, a higher value is desirable. Milk (MILK) - The milk EPD predicts the difference in average 205-day weight of a bull’s daughters’ calves compared to the calves from daughters of another bull. Reported in pounds, ideal milk values depend heavily upon the nutritional environment of the herd. Maternal Weaning Weight (MWW -Simmental); Milk and Growth (M&G - Hereford); Total Maternal (TM - Red Angus) - The EPD predicts the Weaning Weight of a bull’s daughters’ progeny and reflects both the milking ability of a bull’s daughters and the growth potential of their calves. Reported in pounds, higher numbers are generally desirable. Stayability (STAY - Red Angus & Simmental) - The stayability EPD predicts the probability of a bull’s daughters staying in production to at least six years of age compared to daughters of another bull. Reported as a percentage, a higher value is desirable. Carcass Traits – EPDs for carcass traits are calculated using weighted averages of yearling ultrasounds and progeny carcass data. Carcass Weight (CW) - The EPD predicts the difference in hot carcass weight of a bull’s progeny compared to progeny of all other bulls evaluated at a given endpoint. Reported in pounds, a higher number is generally desirable. Marbling (MARB, IMF) - The EPD predicts the difference in average USDA Marbling score of a bull’s progeny compared to progeny of another bull at a similar end point. Reported in degrees of a Marbling score, higher values are desirable. Ribeye Area (REA) - The EPD predicts the difference in ribeye area of a bull’s progeny compared to the progeny of another bull and is an indicator of total muscle in the carcass. Reported in square inches, larger numbers are generally desirable. Fat (FAT) - The EPD predicts the difference in fat thickness of carcasses, measured between the 12th and 13th ribs, of a bull’s progeny compared to progeny of another bull. Reported in inches, lower values are desirable. Yield Grade (YG - Simmental) – The EPD predicts differences in USDA Yield Grade of a bull’s progeny compared to progeny of another bull. Reported in tenths of a USDA YG, lower numbers are desirable.

y g o l o n i m Ter

$VALUE INDEXES are multi-trait selection indexes, expressed in dollars per head, to assist beef producers by adding simplicity to genetic selection decisions. The $Value is an estimate of how future progeny of each sire are expected to perform, on average, compared to progeny of other sires in the database if the sires were randomly mated to cows and if calves were exposed to the same environment. Angus: Cow Energy Value ($EN) - expressed in dollars saved per cow per year, the EPD assesses differences in cow energy requirements for daughters of sires. A larger value is more favorable when comparing two animals (more dollars saved on feed energy expenses). $EN savings differences account for lactation energy requirements and mature size of cows. Weaned Calf Value ($W) - an index value expressed in dollars per head, is the expected average difference in future progeny performance for preweaning merit. $W includes both revenue and cost adjustments associated with differences in birth weight, weaning direct growth, maternal milk and mature cow size. Feedlot Value ($F) - an index value expressed in dollars per head, is the expected average difference in future progeny performance for postweaning merit compared to progeny of other sires. Grid Value ($G) - an index value expressed in dollars per head, is the expected average difference in future progeny performance for carcass grid merit compared to progeny of other sires. Beef Value ($B) - an index value expressed in dollars per head, is the expected average difference in future progeny performance for postweaning and carcass value compared to progeny of other sires. Simmental: All-Purpose Index (API) - Expressed in net dollars returned per cow exposed, evaluates Simmental sires being used on the entire cowherd (bred to both Angus first-calf heifers and mature cows) with a portion of the daughters retained for breeding and the steers and remaining heifers fed and sold on a carcass grade and yield basis. With the exception of shear force (tenderness), all EPDs are considered in this index. Terminal Index (TI) - Expressed in net dollars returned per cow exposed, evaluates the merit of sires when bred to mature Angus cows and all progeny are fed and sold on a carcass grade and yield basis. Consequently, maternal traits such as milk, stayability and MCE are not considered in this index. Red Angus: HerdBuilder Index (HB) - As the name indicates, implementation of the HerdBuilder Index will assist producers in building profitable herds. The HerdBuilder Index is built using the following production scenario: Red Angus bulls mated to cows and heifers (resulting progeny ¾ Red Angus, ¼ Simmental), replacement heifers retained from within the herd, and all remaining progeny sold on a quality-based carcass grid. GridMaster Index (GM) - While Red Angus has traditionally been known as a superior maternal breed, those who have retained ownership in Red Angus calves know of their potential to excel in the feedyard and ultimately hang a premium carcass. The GridMaster Index is built using the following production scenario: Red Angus bulls mated to cows (resulting progeny ¾ Red Angus, ¼ Simmental) and all progeny sold on a quality-based carcass grid. Hereford: Baldy Maternal Index (BMI$) - This is an index to maximize profit for commercial cow-calf producers who use Hereford bulls in rotational crossbreeding programs on Angus-based cows. Retained ownership of calves through the feedlot phase of production is maintained and the cattle are to be marketed on a CHB pricing grid. Certified Hereford Beef Index (CHB$) - This is a terminal sire index, where Hereford bulls are used on British-cross cows and all offspring are sold as fed cattle on a CHB pricing grid. There is no emphasis on milk or fertility since all cattle will be terminal. This index promotes growth and carcass. Shorthorn: British Maternal Index ($BMI) - As the name implies, this multi-trait selection index attempts to measure a bull’s potential profitability when complimenting the British cow base (Angus, Red Angus, Hereford, etc.). Shorthorn females can likewise be gauged at adding value to British or British-composite bulls of other breeds. A balance of growth and carcass traits is desired with a strong maternal component aimed at optimum reproductive efficiency and cow longevity.


Handling Frozen Semen Straws

Proper semen handling is essential to maintain optimum reproductive performance of your A.I. breeding program. To maintain the high quality of semen you purchased from your Select Sires representative, you must pay strict attention to the many details of semen handling outlined on this poster. If you have questions about the correct handling procedures for Select Sires semen, please call you Select Sires Reproductive Solutions Specialist. STRAW RETRIEVAL AND THAWING • Avoid raising straws above the frost line. (1) • On new canes, bend the identification tab up to a 45º angle. (2) • Use the forceps to remove one straw at a time from the top. If it takes more than 10 seconds to retrieve the straw, lower the canister back into the tank and allow to re-cool for 20 to 30 seconds. (3) • Shake the straw gently to remove excess liquid nitrogen and promptly place in 95º F (35º C) water to thaw for at least 45 seconds. Thaw only as many straws as you can use in 10 to 15 minutes. When multiple straws are thawed, do not allow direct contact during thawing process. (4) • To retrieve straws from the bottom goblet, grasp the cane and raise it until the straws are even with other cane tops. Hold the cane and canister with one hand. With your forceps in the other hand, remove the desired straw and place it in the thaw water. (5) LOADING THE INSEMINATION GUN • Before loading the insemination gun, pre-warm the barrel by stroking it vigorously with your hand five or six times. • Make sure the plunger is back about six inches to allow for insertion of the straw. • Remove the straw from the thaw water and wipe it completely dry with a paper towel. • Check to see that the straw contains semen from the desired bull and that a small bubble is at the crimped end. • If the bubble is not at the crimped end, gently tap the straw until the bubble moves to its correct position. • Place the cotton plug end of the straw in the gun. It will stop at exactly the right depth. • Wipe the scissors with a paper towel and cut the straw at a right angle ¼" below the lab seal. (6) • Slide the plastic sheath over the straw and gun and firmly attach the sheath and gun together. (7 and 8) • Inspect the straw end of the gun to ensure a proper seal between sheath and straw. (9) • Wrap loaded guns in a paper towel or in a plastic sheath cover to provide both thermal and hygienic protection and place inside your clothing for transport to the cow. (10)

A.I. Technique in Cattle Mel DeJarnette, Vice President of Processing and Research and Dr. Ray Nebel, Vice President of Technical Service Programs, Select Sires Inc.

Because the rumen displaces the reproductive tract to the right, it is much easier to locate and manipulate the tract with your left hand.

The cervix is located on the floor of the pelvic cavity near the anterior end of the pelvic bone.

As you insert the breeding gun into the vagina, keep your gloved hand even with the gun tip.

Keep your open hand flat against the floor of the rectum, allowing manure to pass over the top of your hand and arm.

Grasp the external opening to the cervix with the thumb on top and the forefingers underneath to close the fornix and guide the gun tip into the cervix.

The recto-vaginal technique is the most commonly used method to artificially inseminate cattle. The basic skills required to perform this technique can be obtained with about three days practice under professional instruction and supervision. Additional proficiency and confidence will be achieved with further work on your own. Regardless of whether you are left or right handed, it is recommended that you use your left hand in the rectum to manipulate the reproductive tract and the right hand to manipulate the insemination gun. This is because the rumen or stomach of the cow lies on the left side of the abdominal cavity, displacing the reproductive tract slightly to the right. Thus, you will find it much easier to locate and manipulate the tract with your left as opposed to right hand. Raise the tail with your right hand and gently massage the rectum with the lubricated glove on your left hand. Place the tail on the left side of your left forearm so it will not interfere with the insemination process. With your fingers together in a pointed fashion, insert your hand in the rectum, up to your wrist. Gently wipe the vulva with a paper towel to remove excess manure and debris. Be careful not to apply excessive pressure, which may smear or push manure into the vulva and vagina. With your left hand make a fist and press down directly on top of the vulva. This will spread the vulva lips allowing clear access to insert the gun tip several inches into the vagina before contacting the vaginal walls. Insert the gun at a 30º upward angle to avoid entering the urethral opening and bladder located on the floor of the vagina. With the gun about 6 to 8 inches inside the vagina, raise the rear of the gun to a somewhat level position and slide it forward until it contacts the external portion of the cervix. You will note a distinct gristly sensation on the gun when it contacts the end of the cervix. The cervix, consists of dense connective tissue and muscle and is your primary landmark for inseminating cattle. It has often been described as having the size and consistency of a turkey neck. The size will vary, with post partum interval and age of the animal. The cervix usually has three or four annular rings or folds. The opening into the cervix protrudes back into the vagina. This forms a 360º blind-ended pocket completely around the cervical opening. This pocket is referred to as the fornix. In most cows, the cervix will be located on the floor of the pelvic cavity near the anterior end of the pelvic bone. In older cows with large reproductive tracts, the cervix may rest slightly over the pelvic bone and down into the abdominal cavity. To become a successful inseminator it is very important that you always know where the tip of the insemination gun is located. The walls of the vagina consist of thin-layered muscle and loose connective tissue. The insemination gun can be easily felt with your palpating hand. As you insert the breeding gun into the vagina, keep your gloved hand even with the gun tip. Manure in the rectum can often interfere with your ability to palpate the cervix and gun tip. However, it is seldom necessary to remove all the manure from the bowel. Instead, keep your open hand flat against the floor of the rectum, allowing the manure to pass over the top of your hand and arm. While handling the cervix you may notice rectal constriction rings attempting to force your arm from the cow. To relax these rings, place two fingers through the center of a ring and massage back and forth. The constriction ring will eventually relax, pass over your hand and arm, and you can continue the palpation process. Because the reproductive tract is freely movable, cows that have strong rectal and abdominal contractions in response to being palpated may actually push their reproductive tract back into the pelvic cavity. This will cause many folds to form in the vagina. In such cases, the insemination gun will often get caught in these folds and little or no progress will be made until they are removed. If you can locate the cervix, grasp it and push it forward. This will straighten the vagina and the gun should pass freely up to the cervix. If you cannot locate the cervix, encircle the gun tip with your thumb and forefingers. With a straightening motion of your wrist, gently “milk” the folds out of the vagina a little at a time. Slide the gun forward and repeat the process

Using the flexibility of your wrist, twist and bend the cervix until you feel the second ring slide over the gun tip.

Use your index finger to check gun placement (1/4 inch past the end of the cervix) before depositing semen.


At this point it is important for you to understand that inseminating a cow is a two-step process. The first step is to get the gun tip to the cervix. To accomplish this you must work the vagina and cervix forward, away from you to straighten the vaginal folds. If you do not feel the gristly sensation of the cervix on the gun, you are still in step one of the process. Once the gun is in contact with the external surface of the cervix you are ready to begin step 2. In step 2, you place the cervix on or over the insemination gun. That’s right, the cervix is placed on the gun, the gun is not passed through the cervix. Excessive movement or probing with the insemination gun during the second step is very often counterproductive. Ground gained is often lost and we find ourselves back in a vaginal fold. The key to mastering step 2 of the insemination process is to know how to hold and manipulate the cervix and concentrating on doing the work with the hand inside the cow, not the one holding the gun. When the gun first contacts the cervix, you will usually find that the tip is in the fornix directly over top of the opening. Grasp the external opening to the cervix with the thumb on top and forefingers underneath. This closes the fornix at top and bottom. As in step 1 we must still know the location of the gun tip. This is accomplished with the palm and third and fourth fingers of your palpating hand. Use your palm and these two fingers to guide the gun tip to the cervical opening located between your thumb and forefingers. With gentle probing the opening should be located. You will feel the gun slide forward until it contacts the second cervical ring. Maintain gentle but steady forward pressure on the gun and slide your thumb and forefingers just in front of the gun tip and re-grasp the cervix. Because the cervix is composed of dense connective tissue and muscle, it is difficult to clearly distinguish the gun tip when it is located within this structure. However, you can determine the approximate location by bending the cervix. Using the flexibility of your wrist, twist and bend the cervix until you feel the second ring slide over the gun tip. Repeat the process until all the rings have been passed over the gun tip. In some cases, it may be necessary to bend the cervix at a 90º angle to clear the cervical folds. Remember, you are placing the cervix over the gun, not the gun through the cervix. A slight jiggle or “give-and-go” of the gun may sometimes be necessary to help pass by a fold, but for the most part gentle forward pressure is all that is necessary and gun movement should be minimal. When all rings of the cervix have been cleared, the gun should slide forward freely with little resistance. Since the uterine wall is very thin, you will once again be able to clearly feel the insemination gun. You are now ready to check your placement and deposit the semen. Rotate your gloved hand until it lies on top of the cervix. With your index finger, locate the far end of the cervix. Pull back on the gun until you feel the tip directly underneath your finger near the internal opening of the cervix. Raise your finger and slowly deposit the semen. Push the plunger slowly so that drops of semen fall directly into the uterine body. With proper A.I. technique and gun placement, semen will be deposited in the uterine body. Uterine contractions will then transport spermatozoa forward to the horns and oviducts with a good distribution of both sides. When the insemination gun is more than 1” through the cervix, all the semen will be deposited in only one horn. This creates a situation of uneven semen distribution. Should the animal ovulate from the opposite horn, conception rates may be compromised. Be sure to raise your finger after checking gun placement. Not doing so may obstruct one horn, again creating a situation of uneven semen distribution. When checking gun tip placement, be careful not to apply excessive pressure. The delicate uterine lining is easily damaged, predisposing the cow to uterine infections and reduced fertility. Make sure you push in with the plunger and do not pull back on the gun. Pulling back may result in much of the semen dose being deposited in the cervix and vagina instead of the uterine body. Although the recommended site of semen deposition is in the uterine body, research suggests that when exact gun tip placement is in doubt, depositing semen slightly into one uterine horn is less likely to compromise fertility than cervical deposition. After properly depositing semen, slowly pull the gun from the reproductive tract. Remove the gloved hand from the rectum and shake off the excess manure. Check the gun tip for signs of blood, infection or semen leakage inside the sheath. Make notes for your veterinarian or future reference where appropriate. Remove the sheath from the gun and hold it in the gloved hand. For the final time, check to confirm which bull you have used. Remove the glove starting at the top of your arm by turning it inside out as you remove it. Wipe the gun clean and dry and return it to the proper storage location. Some of the most important aspects to remember when inseminating a cow to attain maximum breeding efficiency are: • Be gentle. Don’t use too much force. • Insemination is a two-step process. Get the gun to the cervix, and then place the cervix over the gun. • Deposit the semen just through the cervix into the uterine body. Correct insemination procedures will result in better breeding efficiencies. More selection pressure can then be placed on economic traits enabling you and your family to realize a higher return on your semen investment dollars.

The leaders

in Service

As a cooperative, we at Select Sires take pride in bringing our customers the most valued experiences by providing elite bull power, high semen fertility and some of the best people in the industry for support. No A.I. stud is more committed to your success than us; we have the people power, equipment and expertise to maximize the reproductive performance of your cowherd and make it an enjoyable, profiting experience. your success is our passion.

We use Select Sires exclusively for our A.I. program, genetics and technical support. We appreciate the fact that they are not only interested in selling semen, they are also concerned with the results. They understand their business is more than just filling a semen tank. We like the professional, friendly and honest appraisal we get of the bulls, and what they can and cannot do. We always stay in contact with our Select Sires team to discuss bulls, scheduling, pregnancy results, calving, farm visits and harvest data.

- Tim Sutphin, VA

We have worked with Select Sires for more than 40 years, they have always had the best people, service and products around. They are always willing to help with both your needs and the industry’s needs whether it is sponsoring fairs or volunteering. The good cattle they help produce come and go, but the people at Select Sires are friends and colleagues for life!

- Mark A. Sowers, VA

We believe Select Sires selects and collects bulls from the very top of the breed, but the primary reason we use Select Sires is the service we are provided. Doug McLean feels like a partner in our projects, he is involved in the whole process from calving to breeding then back to calving. He is genuinely interested in our success, if something doesn’t go as planned, Doug is the first to try and troubleshoot to make it better the next time.

- Jason ZumBrunnen, WY

I rely primarily on Greg Beavers, my NorthStar beef specialist. Greg knows my cows and what works for my operation and customer base. If I am trying to decide between sires, he is quick to point out some of the differences and suggest a bull as it relates to my goals. The honest, straightforward conversations is why I trust Select Sires year after year.

Steve Furrow and the team at Select Sire Power are interested in finding us solutions and answers, not opinions and suggestions to our questions. It is refreshing to know that the Select Sires team, with their bulls, their research and their people, are on our team.

-Hank Maxey, VA

- Andrew Stewart, IN They have consistently procured quality sires, helped me choose the sires that will potentially have the greatest positive impact on my program and provided guidance with herd management techniques like estrus synchronizing, heat detection, calf care and nutrition supplements.

- John L. Gander, WI Select Sires has worked with our breeding program for over twenty years and during that time we have made substantial progress with herd performance. I am very pleased with the improved performance of our cattle and greatly value the working relationship with the Select Sires team.

- Alan Graybeal, VA

Our relationship with Select Sires gives us access to the best genetics in the beef business that we could not afford otherwise. We have definitely improved the quality of our cowherd and increased our marketing options and bottom line.

- Rick Gurley, AR
