Semen Freezing and Storage

Semen Freezing

Stallion's semen can also be frozen depending on the stallion. This procedure is very involved and depends on the number of straws required, the amount and quality of the stallion's semen. Our set fee includes all the extenders, straws and disposables associated with the freezing process.

There are two important things to remember with freezing stallions semen, firstly 30% of stallions semen freezes well in all extenders, 40% freezes well using the correct extenders and 30% doesn't freeze well at all.

Secondly, post thaw motility is not always a good indicator of fertility (just because the semen looks good under the microscope doesn't mean it will get your mare in foal first time).

Semen Storage

ALAB can also store semen for both long and short term.
