An overview of the mare breeding process with fresh semen, cool-transported semen, and frozen semen.
The main advantages of frozen semen are long-term preservation of genetic material, insurance against unanticipated loss of a stallion, access to frozen semen if fresh or cooled semen is not available, and ability to ship semen worldwide.
It’s safer and more convenient to train a stallion to mount a breeding phantom for semen collection.
Mares may be bred by natural cover or artificial insemination, depending on breed registry regulations, preference of the stallion owner and/or mare owner, location and availability of the stallion and mare, cost, safety concerns, experience of personnel, and other factors.
The goal of a test cool is to determine if semen from a stallion cools well and to identify the semen extender that optimizes motility during cooled storage.
