  • Collections on non-resident or non-CSS/exportable bulls are done by appointment. Please contact Travis Snyder, our Herdsman at 515-371-0711.
All bulls are evaluated based on their specific needs and then scheduled into their own customized program for the best results. After evaluating each bull, we determine the best equipment, housing, and semen buffer options to custom fit your bulls potency for optimal results.

    Our Commitment to Semen Quality

Most of Hawkeye’s crew members have many years of
experience and work in the A.I. industry. Our Lab Manager
has been with us over 30 years and has much experience
evaluating semen.


Hawkeye personnel will not allow semen into circulation that has not passed our quality control measures.

Our industry has seen amazing changes in all areas
recently and we anticipate a very exciting future for
reproduction options in the cattle industry.  The newest
generation of Hawkeye Breeders managers is making sure
everything possible is being done to ensure the best
possible A.I. results with the use of Hawkeye semen.  We are constantly upgrading our lab equipment, including
spectrophotometers, microscopes, processing equipment,
and storage tanks to give our customers the best possible
product and keep it safe.  All our employees have had
instruction and real world experience using the equipment
to assure a consistent product.
