At Oakham Veterinary Hospital we offer a specialised Equine Stud Medicine service. We are a BEVA approved practice for Artificial Insemination and a DEFRA approved centre for collection, storage and distribution of fresh, chilled and frozen semen.
The 2017 season has been our busiest ever at the stud with a 27% increase on 2016 figures taking the total number of mares inseminated to 80. These 80 mares were inseminated using semen from over 55 different stallions which arrived from studs throughout the UK and Europe.
Our excellent working relationships with semen agents such as The Stallion Company and Elite Stallions mean that we have access to fresh, chilled and frozen semen from some of the very best competition stallions in the world. We continued our excellent success rate with frozen semen, achieving overall conception rates over 70%.
Our foaling service remains popular with 17 colts and 9 fillies born on site between March and June. If you are thinking of sending your mare to us next year please book in early as spaces are limited.
