Eddie Bradley has one hard-and-fast rule for his artificial insemination (AI) program — AI is not just an option. He states, “If I had to quit AI breeding, I’d quit altogether.”
The Hiawassee, Ga., producer makes full use of the semen tank for his 20 registered cows and his 70-cow commercial herd. “I can use bulls I can’t afford to buy, I can breed a lot of cattle in a hurry, and the AI-sired calves are worth a whole lot more,” he explains.
