They haven’t a bull’s notion; figures are not their forte & they have no sense of direction when it comes to getting behind the wheel -check out these myths!Catherina Cunnane is back this week to dispel myths ( false belief or idea) that people think about AI technicians.

  1. 1. AI technicians don’t care what straw they pull out of the can.

Of course, they do - It’s down to customer satisfaction at the end of the day! If you want a Blue, you’ll get a Blue, if you want a €1,000 golden CH weanling, they will get you one! (or at least try since the breeding females paints the other half of the picture).

  1. 2. They are never watching the clock and always arrive on-farm later than promised.

The majority of them are good timekeepers; sure we can all get delayed at times!

  1. They have no sense of direction when it comes to getting behind the wheel.

AI technicians know every unmapped route around rural Ireland, locations that even Google Maps cannot identify.

  1. They haven’t got a bulls’ notion.

No pun intended but I’m pretty sure that they know their craft (bovine genetics) like the back of their hand - easy calving sires; short gestation; bulls for maidens; sires suitable for mature cows - the majority can rhyme all suitable sires off by heart.

  1. Figures are not their forte!

Let’s put this one to bed - Think of all those numerical AI codes?

  1. They are useless at remembering names.

Similar to numbers, experienced AI techs have the ability to recall the names and AI codes of all bulls - Fiston; Castleview Gazelle and Curaheen Earp - do they sound familiar?

  1. AI technicians are strangers in the farming world.

AI technicians are celebrities in the bovine breeding world. They are renowned for their speciality.
