Services

We offer on-site breeding management as well as cool, shipped semen
for all mare owners wishing to breed to one of our stallions.

 

Computer assisted semen analysis

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.

 

On-site Breeding Management

If you choose to bring your mare to our facility for breeding management our reproductive doctors will perform daily ultrasound exams and, if necessary, treatments to optimize conception rates.  We monitor for appropriate insemination time, fluid in the uterus pre- and/or post-breeding and document when the mare ovulates. 

Since we are a state-of-the-art facility we have an individual on-site for monitoring 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, so you can rest assured that your mare and foal will be in good hands during their stay at our facility.

For all on-site breeding management the mare owner will be charged the On-site Breeding Management/Cycle Package fee* as outlined below.
