As the largest provider of frozen semen services in the world, SBS has been a leader in the frozen semen industry for more than 30 years. Currently, we have 26 affiliate laboratories throughout the United States, Canada, South America, Europe and Australia. We are pleased to announce our newest affiliate member, Dr. Claire Plante of Therion Science, Inc. in Ontario, Canada.
Each year, we gather together as a group to review our policies and procedures, discuss recent developments in the industry, share information, learn from each other’s experiences and set plans for the future. As an added benefit for our affiliate members, we offer continuing education (CE) credits through RACE/AAVSB for participating veterinarians and veterinary technicians.
Our guest speaker this year was Dr. Patrick McCue, DVM, PhD, Diplomate ACT from the Equine Reproduction Laboratory at Colorado State University.
