Network Leadership

Paul R. Loomis, M.S.

Paul Loomis Paul founded Select Breeders Services in 1987 with the belief that equine breeders needed a reliable source for the burgeoning artificial insemination technology. Beginning with a single laboratory and the willingness to travel throughout the United States to work with forward thinking breeders of Warmblood Sporthorses, and Standardbred racehorses, SBS quickly developed a reputation for quality service and superior technology. Paul's vision of a network of regional semen freezing laboratories is being realized as the SBS Network grows throughout the world.
