By giving your Elk-Wapiti cows the best semen they’ll deliver the best progeny – consistently heavier animals with top velvet from bloodlines with proven inheritability enabling you to capitalise on strengthening venison and velvet markets – without increasing your workload or your feed bills.
Today deer insemination is a straight-forward procedure that’s no more difficult than inseminating a dairy cow. The success rate is similar – at 60 and 75 percent for Elk, or 80 to 90 percent for their more fertile red cousins.
