SpermVital –
Increasing possibilities

The idea behind the SpermVital technology is to extend the life of spermatozoa after insemination. To achieve this, sperm cells are immobilized in a natural substance before cryopreservation. This immobilization preserves energy and enables a controlled release of sperm cells in the uterus after insemination over an extended period of time. This makes timing of insemination less critical with regards to ovulation in the female, and increases the odds of fertilization success.

 

New revolutionary technology – prolongs the lifespan of semen

 

 ADVANTAGES

  • Timing of insemination will be less critical.
  • Conception rate will be higher than or at least equal to conventional semen.
  • Inseminations per heat can be reduced.
  • Inseminations on weekends and public holidays can be reduced or avoided altogether.
  • Conventional insemination equipment and technique is used.
    (we recommend 36-38°C for at least 1 minute, and then inseminate as soon as possible)

For the herd owner, this translates to reduced insemination costs and improved herd fertility, both factors that lead to increased profitability.

Austrian study
Great results from Austrian study
In the December issue of the Flechvieh Austria magazine there was an article presenting the results of a Master thesis done by Genostar in Austria.
The study that the thesis is based upon, refers to inseminations from 2015 to 2019. The use of the SpermVital semen in the study show on average a 6% higher NRR on heifers and 4,4% higher on cows. The result was even greater on repeat breeders, with a difference of up to 8,5% on animals with more than three inseminations The results from Genostar confirm the outcome from the study done by Masterrind in 2019, which showed an increase of 8,3% in NRR for SpermVital when inseminated early....

VIKINGGENETICS will launch SpermVital
Vikinggenetics and SpermVital have signed an agreement where Vikinggenetics will launch SpermVital's unique technology on their own genetics.
VikingGenetics is a co-operative owned by 20,000 dairy and beef farmers in Denmark, Sweden, and Finland. They are experiencing a significant demand both in the Scandinavian markets as well as in the European market for the SpermVital technology. The SpermVital technology already has a significant market share in Europe and this agreement will give the European farmers access to the SpermVital technology on Viking genetics.
