The value of Fixed Time AI 

Fixed Time Artificial Insemination (FTAI) is popular, cost effective and relatively simple reproductive technology, ideal for increasing the overall genetic merit of your herd and, importantly, adding significantly increased profitability to your beef operation.

FTAI involves synchronising the animals in your herd through the use of exogenus (injection or insertion/implantation of CIDR) hormones to be artificially mated over a controlled timeframe.

Synchronisation allows producers to utilise high indexing bulls from around the world for artificial insemination of their herd, with cows and heifers able to be inseminated on a single day at the same time.

Our Guide to Fixed Time Artificial Insemination contains useful information including:

  • Benefits of FTAI
  • Selecting a FTAI program for my herd
  • Cost benefits of FTAI
  • Facilities, personnel & equipment
  • Sire options
