Description of HEIFERPLUS
How does HEIFERPLUS work?The sexing process "stimulates" the fertility and motility of the X-chromosome bearing (female) sperm while "slowing" the fertility and motility of the Y-chromosome bearing (male) sperm. When inseminated, the sperm are "sorted" in the reproductive tract. The result is more ova fertilized by the X-bearing sperm... producing more heifer calves.
Are pregnancy rates affected? Our research team and the experience of cattle producers using HEIFERPLUS have shown that pregnancy rates are excellent using this product. Many producers are reporting an 5-25% increase in conception rates!
