Collecting, evaluating and freezing of semen (Bovine)

The In Vitro Africa AI and Embryo Centre offers semen collection of bulls. Semen is collected from quarantined animals. A comprehensive semen evaluation is done, including motility, concentration and morphology. Suitable samples are frozen and stored in liquid nitrogen for later use.

We also offer registration of bulls for AI purposes. Upon registration, bulls meet the requirements of the Department of Agriculture, for utilisation of their semen in Artificial Insemination Programmes. Bulls are kept under quarantine at our Centre while their semen is tested and blood tests are performed.
