AI quality standards

A one-page summary on the BPEX AI Standard is now available to download here. It includes the Standard’s development, what the Quality Standard programme includes, the time invested in it over the last few years and the key points farmers should be aware of.
To try to improve the competitiveness of the English pig industry, BPEX and the NPA recognised that the industry needed to focus on improving reproductive performance and spread the costs of production over more pigs.
So after 12 months of development the BPEX AI Quality Standard was launched in September 2006.

Why you should purchase from a certified AI centre
The introduction of the Standard further extends the chain of assurance to include AI, to provide producers with an unprecedented assurance that the semen delivered to their farms can be used with confidence, as it will have been produced to an AI Standard that is comparable to those in operation in the EU. Using assured AI is also an important part of achieving the BPEX 2TS target.
