Artificial Insemination (AI) is the wonderful method of moving up the ladder of genetic success. More are breeding AI in the Texas Longhorn industry than ever before. However, with the popularity of getting calves from famous sires are the rapidly escalating semen prices. Just a few years ago no one dreamed of paying $100 to $500 for TL semen. Now some minimally known, even low data bulls are priced at $100 to $250. Yet, there are friendly options.
Take a look at some reasonable, worth the money, low dollar, even dirt cheap proven bulls available. When prices are over-inflated, out of reason, excessive, and a risky purchase, there is a solution.
Many are breeding their first TL cattle by AI. With no experience, a new veterinarian, and new squeeze facilities; this is not the time to use $300 semen. Take a look at the reasonable prices of the Dickinson Cattle Co sires below and save yourself a headache, and other things. Order all semen from one place and save UPS fees. Call 740 758 5050
