Answer :

Artificial insemination (AI) is the process of collecting sperm cells from a male animal and manually depositing them into the reproductive tract of a female. Artificial insemination is commonly used instead of natural mating in many species of animals because of the many benefits it helps in.


the ability to use sires of superior genetic merit (the best bulls of the breed);


improving production traits in cattle operation;


the ability to mate specific sire to individual cows;


reducing the number of herd bulls needed in cattle operation;


increased genetics for replacement heifers; and


when combined with estrous synchronization, a shorter calving season can be achieved, resulting in a more consistent, uniform calf crop.
