Artificial Insemination heat detection and timing

A major bottleneck to successful Artificial Insemination (AI) is related to timing. A cow can only be inseminated if she is in heat, which means a dairy farmer needs to be able to detect accurately when a cow is in heat. Breeding cows that are not in heat result in failure, turning heat detection into a critical component of reproductive management. This Business Bulletin is based on the Genetics & Breeding training given to AAA. It explains and illustrates key signals of heat and other important factors regarding the timing of AI.
