Today’s repro tip involves FROZEN SEMEN – did you know that frozen semen only lives for 12-24 hours (on average) once it’s thawed out? For this reason, breedings using frozen semen typically occur LATER, most commonly 3-4 days after ovulation.
Male interest and female receptivity are usually greatest around ovulation, so it’s not unusual for breeders to get concerned that “we’re gonna miss her!” by breeding so late. At Hamby Road we’re committed to breeding on THE PERFECT DAY, regardless of when that day may fall…which is what brought Dr. Adams into the clinic this year on Christmas Day!
Call us any time you'd like to discuss an upcoming breeding using frozen semen for more information.
