Mare : Breeding Management with Frozen Semen

Since the introduction of cryopreserved (frozen) equine semen to the commercial horse breeding industry in the early 1980's, its popularity and acceptance has grown exponentially. I breed more mares with frozen semen these days than with either shipped or fresh semen. The advantage of having the stallion in the tank and immediately available when the mare is ready to ovulate far outweighs any of its disadvantages (perceived or otherwise).

Breeding Management Package: $650.00/cycle plus board ($40.00/day; $60.00/day for mare with foal)

All reproductive exams (rectal palpation plus ultrasound) at 6-8 hour intervals once ovulation is imminent or expected.

Hormonal stimulants to induce ovulation, if determined by Dr. Ley to be advised

Insemination and post-ovulatory treatments (if needed)

Day 14, 24 and 45 pregnancy examinations by ultrasound

$150.00 additional fee if deep intrauterine insemination by hysteroscopy is requested

$150.00 additional fee if twin reduction is required

Mares brought to my barn/ facility for examinations, breeding, and / or foaling pay a one time admission fee ($40); boarded horses will not be charged a farm call.

Note: The fees listed here may not necessarily reflect the current fees set for each item. Call or email Dr. Ley for a current fee estimate.
