A.S. Series 70-30
The use of artificial insemination (AI) in swine has been restricted because of the inability to store semen. It is usually recommended that for AI use boar semen not be stored more than 48 hours. Obviously, the goal is to develop a technique whereby boar semen could be stored indefinitely such as is the case with bull semen. However, until such a technique is developed, a method of storing boar semen for a few days would be of value for promoting AI in swine.
