Equine Breeding Management
Whether it's your first time breeding your horse, or you are a seasoned pro, our vets in Sturgis can help you manage your herd's equine reproduction.
Our ultrasound-guided evaluations will follow your mare through her cycle to determine your best chance at breeding. The equine reproduction vet monitoring your mare will help hormonally control her cycle to optimize breeding.

Benefits of Artificial Insemination for Horses
Artificial insemination offers huge advantages for breeders. It allows for more genetic selection from studs all over the world and enables you you to breed your mare without traveling.
Beyond convenience, you are also protecting the mare from the costs and hazards of travel and potential exposure to disease and injury.
Travel and changing facilities are stressful events as well, and a stressed mare is less likely to be fertile.
