  • Webinar: Success with Sexed Semen

  • Date: Wednesday 27 May from 12.30 to 1.30 pm

Advances in sex-sorting technology are enabling farmers to increase the proportion of heifer calves produced by artificial insemination (AI). Sexed semen has the potential to help you raise more replacement heifers, improve voluntary culling options, productivity and fertility. However, AI programs using sexed semen need to be well constructed, planned and implemented to achieve good conception rates. To help you understand the risks and maximise the benefits of sexed semen, we have asked two experts to update you on this emerging technology and provide you with practical guidance on getting the best results.

Who should attend?
Farmers, farm managers and staff involved in selecting sires and performing AI on-farm.
