Stallion Reproductive Services

Our services are designed to allow owners to use their stallions semen in a fresh, cooled and frozen semen program. Stallion services are provided on an outpatient (trailer-in) or inpatient (boarded on-site). All services are charged pre-procedure.

Semen collection is performed in the veterinary barn using routine techniques. After semen collection, it is immediately evaluated and processed for fresh or cooled shipped use. Evaluation includes determination of the following:

  • Gel-free volume
  • Sperm Motility (total and progressive)
  • Sperm concentration

After processing, the semen is prepared for on-site breeding or packaged into a shipping container and sent to the mare owner. The mare owner is responsible for paying for the collection and shipping of semen. Semen can be shipped via Fed-Ex or by using commercial airlines (i.e. counter to counter).
