• Artificial Insemination

SHEC Pty Ltd offers Artificial Insemination with fresh, chilled or frozen semen.
Artificial insemination (A.I.) is the placement of semen into the uterus of a mare at the time of ovulation. It is performed by means of a catheter inserted through the mare’s cervix by a veterinarian. Fresh semen is collected and used almost immediately.  Chilled semen gives you access to a broad range of sires across Australia and New Zealand, and frozen semen can even give you access to stallions abroad.

• Problem Mare Solutions

Our expert team will watch your mare closely to improve both fertility and the likelihood of a full term pregnancy. Problem mare solutions include but are not limited to:
• Pre and post-breeding examinations.
• Surgical procedures such as “caslick” and repair of fistulae following birth trauma.
• Investigative procedures including ultrasound, biopsy, histopathology,  & progesterone assay.
• Identifying mares that are at high risk of pregnancy loss ie placentitis and monitoring to assist in the retention of the pregnancy.
