Cervid: Whitetails
Would be interested to know what evryones thoughts are on Semen Sales/ Artificial Insemination and the effect it has had on the whitetail deer industry or your farm.

If you comment can you please show a positive comment first followed by a negative (if you have one) comment as to the effect this has had on our industry or your farm.

I am not saying I will never AI again or that I will never offer semen for sale off my farm but I am very interested in the opinions that people have regarding this subject.

Positive:I have used AI on my farm and it has given me the opportunity to produce tremendious offspring without the cost of purchasing such an animal both bucks and does.. The use of AI has enhanced our breeding program by a huge margin

Negative: Although not a negative that effects my personal farm I believe that semen sales/AI has had a negative effect on our industry, everyone has access to any buck without the purchase of an animal, if AI was not being done in the deer industry I believe we would see much higher prices for our animals both bucks and does.

I am not an expert on this subject so please do not read and or comment thinking that I am, just think this would be good food for thought and communication.
