And you are attributing this to AI?
Sorry-do not breed cattle-but do utilize AI. Stuff happens-to blame it on the AI process seems stretching it at the very least. As far as problems-I had a huge foal this spring that had to be pulled and 6 years ago had a colt born that snapped off the umbilical and almost bled out. Not conception problems though-believe that is what you are asking.
If that is true then I guess naturally bred cows do not suffer these problems? That was a rhetorical question-because they do.
I do agree if you breed for one trait only[milk production-or muscle mass-speed-whatever]you can get in a bind quick. BUT that is due to short sighted breeding programs. A little common sense and researching pedigrees can help.
