CPS Unit 100, subunit 2, located in Delaware, was operated by the American Friends Service Committee.


A few men performed the more specialized service as technicians and inseminators for artificial breeding associations, one in Delaware and the other in Pennsylvania.  The COs traveled from the association headquarters to care for and manage bulls, wash and disinfect equipment, take and distribute semen.  All members of the association were able to use the services of the best bulls in the association.


Men hoped that their experience in this specialized unit might prove helpful to relief agencies trying to rebuild the herds destroyed during the war.
