Ensure your rams are fit for breeding season
Semen sexing agents are available for both sheep and goats, which can boost the % of male or female offspring born in a flock/herd to 70-80% along with an increase in conception rates of 5-15%. The agents currently available are SHEEPPLUS, RAMPLUS, NANNYPLUS and BILLYPLUS.
With the SHEEPPLUS or NANNYPLUS it works by accelerating the motility of the X-chromosome (i.e., female) bearing sperm, and by decelerating the motility of the Y-chromosome (i.e., male) bearing sperm. After insemination, the sperm are sorted in the reproductive tract of the dam. The result is more ova (egg cells) fertilized by the X-chromosome bearing sperm.
No matter how you inseminate your ewes, we have SHEEPPLUS to suit your needs. For fresh semen, SHEEPPLUS is available in 10 unit multi-dose vials (each vial will sex 10 x 0.25 ml of extended semen). This product is designed for use with cervical or laproscopic insemination of fresh semen. For frozen straws, we also have SHEEPPLUS in single-dose vials.
RAMPLUS and BILLYPLUS works by accelerating the motility of the Y-chromosome (i.e., male) bearing sperm, and by decelerating the motility of the X-chromosome (i.e., female) bearing sperm.
