This guide is a visual and practical explanation of what should happen from the moment when you receive the semen from the artificial insemination centre, until the moment when the sow is inseminated, with a focus on the use of refrigerated semen: conservation and management of seminal doses, oestrus detection, identification of the best time for insemination, insemination methods, and hormonal control of oestrus and ovulation.
