For semen? Or the AI'ing?


You can get semen from Deerpark in Ireland. They send on a next day delivery. Send you catheters too and you can do it yourself or get the vet.


What breed have you got?

Interesting mix. I can't quite envisage what she might look like.  I think I would go for a modern breed though.

I think crossed with a modern breed like a large white you would get good types.

Modern?  It’s been around since the late 1880s!  :D

Good point Sally! It is just how pigs are classified Moderns and Traditionals!

Don't bother emailing them, they really don't seem to do modern technology! We have used them a couple of times and they are great but best if you phone them, also don't expect paying to be easy if you are thinking about paypal or credit card or anything like that. We finally got their bank details to BACS them but think they wanted a cheque. Service is however great and we got lovely piglets from it. Did it ourselves with little experience.
