|"A Breeding Technician's Guide to Inseminating
Swine". This book is written specifically for those people who
are only involved in the insemination. If you are also collecting semen from boars
then you need The Swine AI Book.
The Chapters are as follows: How to start using artificial insemination and
make it work in your herd; Genetics: How to select boars for your artificial
insemination program; Biosecurity procedures for AI; Semen; The
female reproductive system; How to artificially inseminate the breeding female;
Record keeping; Glossary; Appendixes [Cleaning glassware and laboratory
equipment; Calibrating the photometer; Semen evaluation;
Evaluating stored semen; Temperature conversion table; AI equipment
suppliers]. Yes, there is the Self-test, with answers at the end. The 105
pages include a detailed Index.
Each of the staff involved in your AI program should have a copy of either The
Swine AI Book or The Swine Inseminators' Handbook.
This investment will soon pay for itself!
