Stallion services and semen collection

FOR IN-HOUSE AND OFF-FARM STALLIONS

Semen is collected using an AV (artificial vagina) when the stallion mounts the dummy/phantom and then assessed before being placed in an extender medium. The optimal sperm concentration should be between 30-50 million sperm per 1 ml. The extender medium (EquiPlus is commonly used) enables the sperm to survive the drop in temperature when placed in a cooled shipping container and the lengthy travel time when on-route.

 

Transport of your stallion's semen can be organised through Qantas Freight (same day delivery to Melbourne and Sydney), Toll and TNT. A sample is kept in-house and tested for quality control at the time the shipped semen reaches its destination.

  • Performance stallions can stay in work and/or competition while residing at Davidson Equestrian for collection.

  • We have purpose-built stallion paddocks with 6 ft high cattle rail fencing with electric standoffs.

  • Shane was previously involved with the stallion collection and the overall maintenance and care of the breeding stallions at established and renowned German studs, Zuchthof Klatte and Hengststation Sosath
