Schippers Europe develops new pig semen meter

Schippers Europe has developed a semen meter that shows the concentration of semen in number of sperms per ml.

The number of semen required for each insemination dose can be quickly calculated and the meter's main advantage is that it could measure the concentration of fresh undiluted semen directly.


Diluting before measurement is no longer necessary. The meter only needs to be reset once per day using the supplied black cuvette.


Calibration fluid is supplied separately but calibration is rarely needed due to the uniform LED light source.


Based in the Netherlands, Schippers is a service company for the intensive stockbreeder in the EU. The company has establishments in the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, France, Spain, Italy, Canada and the Philippines and it is active in pig breeding, poultry and cattle.
