Intermountain Stallion Services Freezes Semen

 

      Intermountain Stallion Services, in Logan , Utah , specializes in collection, freezing and storage of stallion semen. Under the supervison of the staff veterinarian, stallion semen is collected, processsed and frozen. It is then ready to be shipped to clients in any location to use to inseminate their mare or mares or it can be stored for future use.

      In using frozen semen, a stallion owner can expand their number of clients; and a mare owner can expand the available gene pool in their breeding program.

There are other reasons to freeze a stallion’s semen, including:  

      » Breeding can continue even when a stallion is in training, competing, injured, gelded,    or has died.  

      » Eliminate transporting mare to stallion.  

      » Increase number of mares bred.

      » Semen can be stored until mare is ready.  

      » Eliminate high cost of overnight or same day shipping of cooled semen.  

      » Life insurance for your stallion.  

      Frozen semen conception rates are now comparable to live cover and fresh cooled rates, and more stallion owners opt to have their stallions’ semen frozen and stored. For mare owners, frozen semen makes it possible to breed to higher-quality stallions that are located thousands of miles away — without shipping a mare. In many cases, the cost of using frozen semen is now about the same as live cover.

      While the frozen semen technology has been around for many years, recent breed registry changes have allowed frozen semen to be a much more important tool for horse breeders.

      With many breeds, owners may sell a stallion and retain rights to use frozen semen, or keep the stallion and transfer semen rights. Prior to registering a foal, the foal’s sire is verified by genetic testing.

      Insure success for either your stallion or mare by using Intermountain Stallion Services, a division of Hoffman AI Breeders, a cattle breeding service in business since 1976.
