We offer on-site breeding management as well as cool, shipped semen
for all mare owners wishing to breed to one of our stallions.
Cool, Shipped Semen
Our Computer Assisted Semen Analysis (CASA) program allows a thorough analysis of each ejaculate from each stallion. The detailed print out of this information accompanies each semen shipment leaving our facility. This provides the DVM or breeding manager receiving the semen with important details, such as total number progressively motile sperm (PMS) per dose, motility of the semen and how many doses are included in each individual shipment.
See a video here of the CASA machine at work.
