Artificial Insemination Procedure

The Artificial Insemination procedure is carefully overseen by a qualified AI Technician. From semen collection, to the actual insemination, it is imperative that everything be done extremely hygienically to ensure the most potent semen and the greatest chance of pregnancy.

Here is the procedure, step by step, pictorially:

1. The stallion is brought to the mount...

3. The motility of the semen is checked under the microscope. If everything looks fine, the semen is prepared for insemination. Several mares can be inseminated from one good batch.

5. A long tube is inserted into the mares cervix. This is even better than natural breeding as the semen is put right where it needs to be.

2. The plastic vagina is slipped onto the stallion - (it contains a liner that is filled with very warm water - approximately 55 Degrees Centigrade) the temperature is different for each stallion and ejaculation will not take place if its not just right!
