Are Maple Hill cows artificially inseminated?

< Back

Around 25% of the cows in our herd are artificially inseminated, mostly for safety purposes, when it is not safe to have a bull around. Bulls can be a danger to the herd as well as to our farmers and their families. Farmers report 75% insemination by a bull. Cows are bred or inseminated when they are in heat, and naturally “want” to be bred. Insemination is a painless process for the cow.
