The benefits of AI

  • Upgrade to the Worlds Best
  • No anesthesia
  • Huge genetic gain
  • Cost effective & affordable
  • Reduced overall cost
  • Reduce risk of disease
  • Increase genetic spread

Factors affecting outcome

  • Facilities
  • Good management practices
  • Program hygiene
  • Semen quality
  • Stress
  • Accurate drug application
  • Technician’s skill and experience - no cowboys (a good technician takes less than 1 minute to AI a hind)

Recipient Selection

  • Hinds should be weaned
  • Hinds on rising plane of nutrition
  • Condition Score 3.5 to 4.0
  • Good frame size and weight
  • No dubious breeding history
  • Settled and familiar with facilities
  • Low stress levels

Advice

  • Control what you can
  • Use people with proven track records
  • Boost your herd by using semen from our top Sire Stags
  • We can increase the genetic gain in your herd quickly
  • Provide a huge leap forward for genetic efficiency & ongoing genetic gain
  • AI industry is only just beginning
  • Simple technology providing consistent results
  • Good luck or bad luck has nothing to do with it

Our AI Programme

  • DGNZ AI programme is a 14 day process:
  • Day 1: Insert Controlled Internal Drug Release (CIDR.G)
  • Day 12: at a specified time, remove CIDR.G and inject 1ml of PMSG
  • 56 Hours later: Do the AI
  • Hinds will then exhibit standing heat 36-48 hours after the CIDR pull. It is very important to keep stags away over this period.
 
AI has brought huge gains in genetic improvement, meaning we are now now one of the best farms in Eastern-Europe.

We are ahead of New Zealand and are looking for the newer generation of sire stags from Deer Genetics NZ to improve our herd.

Without the "know how" support from DGNZ we would just be other deer farm in Europe.
