Semen Freezing & Storage
We are affiliated with Select Breeders Services (SBS), and offer on-site freezing and storage services at The Four Sixes to the general public. In addition, frozen semen is available in Australia, Argentina, Brazil, the European Union, Mexico, New Zealand, Paraguay and Uruguay.
The Four Sixes use artificial insemination (AI) on a routine basis for breeding purposes. Great care is taken to manage stallions and mares properly and safely during this process.
In addition to managing mares at the ranch being bred to stallions here, we handle shipped cooled or frozen semen sent in from outside stallions, as well. In addition, mares can be brought in for breeding, and do not need to be a long-term resident.
The Four Sixes maintains its own recipient herd. Embryo transfers are done on-site, and we also handle embryos shipped in for implantation.
Mares are foaled out in a controlled setting under live observation 24 hours a day, seven days a week. A licensed veterinarian and foaling attendants attend every foaling.
