"Torito" AI Method
Under "Beef News" on this site on Friday, there was an article ("Can AI method improve beef cattle efficiency?") about Marco Hidalgo, a Mexican veterinarian who demonstrated a new method of AIing cattle at an Illinois Farm Bureau meeting. Hidalgo asserts that the 'Torito' method of artificially inseminating cattle: 1) could be done without putting an arm in the cow; 2) could improve AI efficiency by up to 20% and 3) didn't require an AI technician.
The article wasn't very specific (maybe intentionally so) in describing the method, but it had something to do with a tube, a balloon and bypassing the cervix. From the article, the method was kind of hard to visualize.
Has anyone seen or used the "Torito" method and can explain it a little bit better?
This method sounds interesting I home some know more about it.
It's a pity yhat nothing seems to be available on the 'Torito' AI system, possibly the forum moderators could locate some further information for this post?
Hidalgo can be reached via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 52 55 5682-5261
Direct contact may be a better option!
