Science - Livestock / Animal Husbandry / artificial insemination
German term or phrase: Güssttagskosten
Any ideas what this term means? I can't get any google hits. The context is:
(Annahme: NRR 90, 20 Euro pro Besamung, 42 Euro Güssttagskosten pro Zyklus, Arbeitsaufwand...)
This is in the greater context of analyzing the economic efficiency of a new pre-insemination testing device in cows to determine if they are fit to be inseminated. The test of the new device was conducted by the RUW eG of Muenster.

What is a Chute Fee?
The chute fee is what the stallion owner has to pay the vet every time the vet collects the semen, analyzes it, extends it, packages it, and ships it. It is probably called a “Chute Fee” because this requires the stallion to jump up on a breeding phantom, and many stallions need a mare in heat to be in a “chute” next to the phantom to get them interested in jumping on the phantom. The Stallion Owner passes this fee on to the Mare Owner.

Thanks! Given the context, it certainly makes sense, and I've seen the exact process with a "phantom" used to collect semen from bulls, but I've never heard this term before, either in German or in English.
