Have any of you noticed that some genetic lines of does have better success than other lines? I have a theory that it's the way some of them react to the CIDRS. We increased the number of hours between when the CIDR was pulled and we bred them and increased the success rate on certain lines that had a bad track record. Just one more possiable reason for different success rates.

Crocket.... splitting straws is a common practice and the greater number of splits may have an effect on conception rates..... we also never split a straw while doing cervical breeding but some do, I believe success is related to the condition of the doe, the amount of stress she is exposed to and obvioulsy quality of semen how it is handeled and placement

I have all types of bloodlines on my farm. We run them in the chute the first 2 times and then when we AI, which is done Laparoscopically, we run them into the chute and give them a shot to knock them out. Last year we AI'd 46 does and 43 took to AI. Very similar success with same methods for the past 3 years.
