Advice on Semen Processing
Stallion owners navigating the intricacies of semen processing often seek guidance to make informed decisions that optimise fertility outcomes. At Malton Equine, we offer specialist assistance to stallion owners in shaping the best strategies for semen processing.
Deciding on the ideal processing parameters involves a detailed understanding of the stallion’s reproductive characteristics and the specific goals of the breeding program. We collaborate closely with stallion owners to tailor the semen processing approach, addressing key considerations such as the appropriate dose, the choice of extender, and the potential need for a centrifuge.

The selection of the appropriate extender is another pivotal aspect of semen processing. Extenders influence the viability and longevity of sperm, impacting the success of artificial insemination. Through collaborative consultations, we evaluate the unique characteristics of each stallion and recommend extenders that align with their reproductive profile, contributing to the overall effectiveness of the breeding process.

In certain cases, the use of a centrifuge may be deemed necessary to enhance semen quality. This technique allows for the removal of undesirable components, concentrating the sperm population and improving the overall quality of the ejaculate. Our veterinary team evaluates each stallion’s specific needs and, when indicated, recommends the strategic use of a centrifuge to optimize semen processing outcomes.

Through a tailored and collaborative approach, we enable stallion owners to make informed choices in semen processing, ultimately contributing to the success of their breeding programs. Our commitment is to provide expert guidance, utilising advanced reproductive technologies to elevate the efficiency and effectiveness of the breeding process.

Embarking on a breeding program is a significant decision for any horse owner, and pre-breeding examinations play a pivotal role in ensuring the health and success of the endeavor.

Pre-breeding examination

Contagious diseases, whether transmitted directly or indirectly, can have far-reaching consequences within a breeding program.

Sampling for infectious disease

When poor pregnancy rates become apparent, it serves as a crucial indicator that your stallion's fertility may be sub-optimal, necessitating a thorough investigation to identify and address potential challenges.

Infertillity Investigation

A stallion's reproductive system involves not only the testes but also the accessory sex glands, which play a pivotal role in contributing various fluid components to the ejaculate.

Ultrasound examination of the accessory sex glands

Addressing conditions affecting the accessory sex glands in stallions requires a targeted and innovative approach, particularly when facing challenges in reaching these crucial reproductive organs.

Endoscopic treatment of accessory sex gland infection

Semen analysis stands as a cornerstone in evaluating breeding soundness. A thorough examination of the semen provides critical insights into the stallion's fertility potential.
