I'm getting ready to begin my adventure with A.I. this fall, and was hoping to hear from some breeders who have used it with success. I've heard from plenty of people who think it's not even worth it, because of the relatively high chance of failure, but could I please hear some success stories? Just want to try and boost my confidence here, as I'm getting ready to buy about $500 worth of semen.

Thanks!

Well... I AI'd 3 does my first year, 2 out of three took. I ended up with twin bucks from both does. Last fall I AI'd 4 does, only 1 took, but got buck/doe twins from her. Overall the quality of the kids has been way better than what I was getting with the bucks I owned. I think AI is totally worth it, even if you just end up with 1 or 2 kids.
