We are poised on the edge of the AI experience! Today we get the CIDR hormone inserts and the Folligen and Estrumate meds to begin the process of insemination. Our friends over at Beau Chemin Farm in Waldoboro are doing AI and they were instrumental in getting us connected to the AI vet in Maine. Our insemination date is January 4th, so we need to get them prepped for the timeline to work properly. Hatchtown Farm folk are hopefully joining us this afternoon and with any luck we will have photo or video documentation.
I have been moaning about not being able to get anyone to ship straws of goat semen during this holiday rush time. But I now have some call-backs from two sources and I don’t see why it won’t work. This is just a test of our resolve, I am sure, just what we need to add to the holiday ambiance :*)
