Hello Don, Anne, & Kelly Bennett
I would like to thank you for your excellent quality semen you export to me in the USA for my A.I. program, and also for your great advice on which stags to use the last few years.
I've been raising red deer for almost 16 years on Twelve- Mile Creek Red Deer Farm in the state of Minnesota. I started artifically inseminating some of my hinds 7 years ago to get some of the worlds best genetics on my farm. The last 5 years have been the most enjoyable ones for me, because of the top-notch genetics that you provide to me.
Every year I'm excited about how my trophy stags and up and coming stags will turn out and score.
Over the years, I've had an average calving rate of 85% with your semen, or other available semen that you exported to me. Also a lot of credit goes to Dr. Claire Plante DVM from Canada for doing the cervical procedure for me, she does an excellant job.
Here are the results from each year:
(2001) Motsumi DG and Viagra - 90%
(2002) Motsumi DG, Foveran DG, and Viagra - 81%
(2003) Brusnik, Furze DG, Tamar DG, and Tadmore DG - 86%
(2004)Tamar DG - 86%
(2005) Furze DG, Motsumi DG, and Tamar DG - (hinds calving in June 2006)
If you have anyone in the USA with any questions, please feel free to have them contact me on your behalf.
