Semen Collection

Digital pressure or massage and use of an artificial vagina are the two most common methods of semen collection in livestock species.[1] The decision as to which one is best for a given animal is based on several factors, including male reproductive physiology and behavior, quality of semen obtained, and the technical expertise required for a successful collection. The best collection procedure for a given animal is the one that most closely simulates the social and physiological stimuli that occur during natural mating (Table 1).
