With the Alpha Vision, you have to block the cow only 5 minutes after leaving the milking parlor as you can do it immediately, it's fast, no need to block it for two hours. It improves animal welfare and this is one of our priorities. We can see what we do, we can guide, it's reassuring for the breeder. Thanks to Alpha Vision I have 65% success, it's fast and efficient!

We needed to cut costs so we decided to inseminate ourselves. Without the camera or without a tool like the Alpha Vision I would never have done it by myself. Thanks to the camera we can see the cervix and then introduce the straw. Time to go to the cow, do the insemination, come back and clean the equipment it takes 10 minutes!
This past winter, I bred 43 cows with AlphaVision. I am extremely reassured with this system as I avoid -I am sure of it- to harm the animal with the tip of the gun on the cervix entry or in the vagina. Before using AlphaVision, this stressed me out the most.
Furthermore, before thawing the straw, I can control each and every time if there is an infection using the camera. I pay attention also to the amount of visible cervical mucus because the more I can see, the better is the result of the AI.! Sometime, at the beginning of the heat, there is little mucus. So I prefer to wait a few hours then check again. I inseminate when mucus is abundant. The image gives me a lot of useful information impossible to have without AlphaVision. I will never look back!
