Sexed Semen Trials

There has been 3 extensive field trials carried out on sexed semen in Ireland 2013,2018 & 2019. There has been no significant difference in the conception rates from all 3 trials with the latest trial showing a conception rate of 46- 50% for sexed compared with a 60% rate for conventional. One of the significant findings from the trials was the variability between herds with some herds experiencing rates as low as 10% with the sexed product.

The facts:
