AI Directory

The Republic of Ireland Group received a grant of  10,000 from the Department of Agriculture to cover the cost of collecting semen from five dexter bulls in order to have AI straws available to breeders. 

The scheme is now in operation and the bulls shown below have been chosen to provide the straws, which are currently stored by Dunmasc Genetics. Members of the society can purchase the straws for €10 each, but must opt to purchase a minimum of 5. They are available to non members for €15 each.
