Questions & Answers
Is the maXipig® just a Cooler?
No, it is much more than that, the maXipig® works as a light activator while keeping fresh semen doses at 17ºC (62ºF) during all the activation process. Doses must be stored in the fridge as usual, before the insemination the doses are placed in the maXipig® for a light cycle that takes 30 minutes, afterwards the doses are ready to be used as usual.
