Fresh Chilled Stud? TCI? WHAT?

Fresh chilled stud service is a modern technique used in animal breeding to maximize the chances of pregnancy. It involves collecting semen from a male animal and shipping it to a female animal for insemination within 24 hours. The semen is collected and processed to ensure its viability, then cooled down to a temperature that maintains its integrity during shipment. This method eliminates the need for live cover, which reduces the risk of injury or disease transmission between the animals.
TCI, or Transcervical Insemination, is one of the most commonly used methods for fresh chilled stud service. It involves inserting a small catheter through the cervix into the uterus to deposit semen directly into the reproductive tract. This method is preferred over traditional artificial insemination techniques because it allows for greater accuracy and precision in depositing semen closer to the ovum, increasing the likelihood of fertilization. Additionally, TCI does not require sedation or anesthesia for either the donor or recipient animal, reducing stress on both parties.
In conclusion, fresh chilled stud service utilizing TCI provides an effective and efficient approach to animal breeding that minimizes risks associated with live cover while maximizing pregnancy rates. The technique requires specialized knowledge and expertise in semen collection, processing, and transport as well as TCI procedures. As such, it has become an essential tool in modern animal husbandry practices aiming for improved genetic outcomes.
