Hi - I am looking for a facility to take my stallion to for collection and processing of semen to customers. Needs to be in New Mexico, southern Colorado, or west Texas.
Has anyone on the board gone this route before? How did you like it and was it worth the costs?

I began by taking my stallion about one hour to a collection facility. He mounted and collected first time no problem and produced enough semen for twelve inseminations. I had the semen evaluated also. I continued to go to a collection facility nearer by until last year when I had learned enough to begin to collect myself. Also, I did have a technician come to the farm here for two years and collected with me. I took a course and found alot of helpful info at this site and others. Setting up the lab was more difficult than setting up the phantom but it has all worked out great. The original collections at the breeding farm went great but they charged such high fees that I had to pass along to my mare owners. Also there was the trailering back and forth. I am a Vet Tech so that probably helped alot. The collection farm is a great way to learn more. They will answer nay questions you have hopefully.

I know of a facility just East of Stillwater, OK if you are interested in going there. They have the ability to do frozen semen as well. Email me at email@example.com if you are interested, and I will get you their contact information.
Probably too far east for you, near Austin, TX. We are equipped to handle what you were looking for, with reasonable costs. firstname.lastname@example.org
