Steven-how the sperm meets the egg is not the important thing.
No matter if the bull live covers the cows or if the cows are inseminated-it matters not one bit.
You still have to pay attention to NOT getting into problems with the inbreeding,etc. You are attributing a LOT of problems to AI that are not the fault of AI-it is just the medium of fertilization. It is still the guy holding the pipette that has to do his homework to see if the resulting offspring will be a good cross.
Good grief-try not to be too arrogant about knowing more than the "old timers". Arrogance can have a very humbling effect.
You are messing up so many things under the blanket of artificial insemination. The issues you seem to be objecting to are also losing vigor from NOT outcrossing to unrelated lines-embryo transfers-short cycling stock to bring on ovulation..and on and on.
We utilize AI and have been very happy with the results. We have gotten foals we could never have done by having to ship the mares and pay the fees for care and so on.
I really am confused as to what you are most upset about..can you flesh that out a bit?
