Missouri Artificial Vagina

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The Missouri artificial vagina (AV) consists of an outer leather jacket and a double-walled rubber liner. The liner has an attached cone on one end that is made of a single layer of rubber. The Missouri AV may be used with or without an inner disposable plastic liner. The liner allows for easier clean-up and better control of infectious disease transmission, but some stallions may not like the feel of the plastic over the rubber liner. This chapter outlines the step by step procedure for assembling Missouri artificial vagina, and lists the equipment and supplies needed for this purpose.
