AI Services unaffected by Genus Equine
business as usual for Stallion AI Services, despite the recent withdrawal
by Genus Equine from the equine AI market.
DEFRA-approved establishment, the Shropshire based Stallion AI Services
has been at the forefront of the equine AI industry for the past
14 years and freezing semen with Genus for the past seven years.
Over 350 stallions, incorporating 37 different breeds, have been
through the centre during this time, representing over 7000 semen
collections. The business is also continuing its work with the Rare
Breeds Survival Trust (RBST) to establish a sperm bank to ensure
the future survival of Britains most threatened native breeds
of horse and pony.
AI Services uses the very latest equipment and technology and can
freeze semen for both UK and worldwide markets.
Matson, Director of Stallion AI Services said: AI is of far-reaching
benefit to the equine industry. It not only presents a wider choice
of breeding options and much greater flexibility with breeding programmes
but also has higher rates of success and can provide a means of
disease control. Of course we are extremely disappointed that Genus
have decided to pull out of the equine AI market, but for us its
very much business as usual.
Assurance will continue to be carried out by Genus at their Ruthin
chilled and frozen semen is available through Stallion AI Services.
