We can develop individual protocols to suit you, your mare and the stud to ensure insemination at the correct time, whether using fresh, chilled or frozen semen.

Because of that the timing of ovulation in the mare has to be meticulously planned and requires numerous visits and differing drug regimes, as well as post insemination scans to check for inflammation. The costs associated with this can quickly mount so we can offer a fixed costs package per cycle to take out uncertainty.
