for the mare owner. OK, we find the stallion. They have their own breeder services, with fresh, frozen, and cooled. They do thier own evaluations, freezing services etc and offer thier services to the public. I don't know much about the process or the cost of AI, but I like one of their stallions and I want to gather some info about this. Ok, The mare owner pays a stud fee. What comes next? My Vet will have to find out when the exact time to inseminate is? How many visits is this usually? Etc! Yes, I have alot to learn about this. :-) Thanks for any help.

Wow, I can't believe nobody responded to this. However, you probably can find all the answers to your questions in many of the other posts. I was in the same boat as you 2 years ago, but am coming along. My best advice is to find the best reproductive vet you can. It will save you money in the long run. Costs vary greatly from area to area. Little farm vets can be less costly and have as much (if not more) experience. I am in the midwest and they inseminate a lot of cattle around here. They have got it down. But sometimes you can just have good or bad luck with the whole deal. My first year was a peice of cake. Picked the stallion, watched for her cycle, one trip to the vet, left her a couple days, they ordered, they inseminated, came out did follow up ultrasound, my mare was PG - presto, fabulous colt. This year, 4 A.I's failed to the same stallion - here it is September, had to find another stallion (this late), pay another stud fee & am hoping to get her covered live. So next year I have a paid stud fee to the first stallion (who's 2K miles away), if she does not take to the live stallion I have another. I still have to pay shipping, collection fees etc.... Will my mare cover next year? If not, hopefully her daughter will who will be 3. It can be costly and frustrating, but also allows you to be more choosey about the stallions you breed to.

thanks Jen,

I guess when It's bad, it's bad. I think I'll hold off anyway, there's no hurry!

Thanks!
