Artificial insemination of yearling heifers: an economic analysis

, : Artificial insemination of yearling heifers: an economic analysis. Publication Veterinary Continuing Education, Massey University ( 184): 259-262

The net benefits (discounted to the year of mating) of inseminating yearling heifers to generate replacement heifer calves, compared with natural mating, were shown to be greatest when heifers are mated at observed oestrus rather than oestrus synchronized by controlled internal drug-releasing devices, and additionally the best cows are selected for insemination to produce breeding replacements.

The effect of dietary energy and weight class on the fertility of yearling beef heifers (Angus, Hereford, and Angus x Hereford) was investigated over 2 years. In year 1, heifers (n=58) were classed as heavy (HW; >=340 kg) or light weight (LW; &...

The remaining 11 heifers were synchronized...
