Breeding a mare with a history of reproductive failure can be a frustrating and expensive proposition for the mare and owner. At the Louisiana Center for Equine Reproduction, we carefully review the mare and examine her reproductive history in order to provide a realistic prognosis for establishing and maintaining a pregnancy. Our breeding services range from Embryo Transfers to reproductive evaluations and routine exams for pregnancy detection. We use state of the art diagnostic techniques to evaluate the mare and the semen.
Ultrasound, follicle assessment, hormone treatments and a daily tease program aid in determining the optimal time for insemination or breeding.
