Stallion_Abdullah Headshot 2 Many stallion owners have the foresight to have frozen semen processed from their stallions while they are young, during their prime reproductive years.

Waiting may turn into a situation of “I wish I would have…”. When semen is frozen earlier in a stallion’s life, it becomes a tool for the stallion owner to not only perpetuate the genetic line of their stallion but also allows for continued income after the stallion has passed away.

Tank_Red_Seal You have made the decision to breed your mare using frozen semen, now what? The choice of breeding your mare with frozen semen over cooled or fresh semen has a few notable benefits.
