Select Breeders Services (SBS) in Maryland and Select Breeders Southwest (SBSW) in Texas are standing several stallions for the 2016 breeding season. SBS and the processing, storage and distribution of equine frozen semen go hand in hand. However, we offer a wide variety of equine reproduction services which includes the management of stallions for cooled semen shipments during the breeding season. Some of the stallions we manage remain resident at our facilities in Maryland or Texas whereas others may trailer in and out of the facilities on collection days while they remain in training at other facilities. At SBS in Maryland we also provide the collection and processing of cooled semen on farm at two of the largest Sporthorse farms in the country. The breeds and disciplines we work with stretch to both ends of the spectrum from draft horses to miniature horses as well as successful show stallions to stallions used for trail riding.
