Stallions are taken in for training onto a dummy mare. This can take between 1-2 weeks depending on the individual stallion. Also at the same time we can carry out semen evaluation and/or freezing if required.
This service has become increasingly popular due to the fact that mare AI is being carried out across the country, and the increased safety using the dummy provides to both stallions and handlers, taking out the risks involved collecting from live mares.
Cross contamination risks are also greatly reduced using this method.
Also, you can collect from your stallion at any time of the year without having to rely on the mare being in season.
