We are shipping semen on our stud for the first part of the breeding season. Would it be okay to AI a few of our own mares without ultrasounding them just as you would if you were live-covering a mare. (Teasing the mare with the stud and breeding her every-other day as long as she was showing signs of heat.)

It would be nice not to have the added expense of hauling the mares to the vet and having them ultrasounded to keep up with the size of their follicle!

One very commonly used technique for "on-farm" AI is to tease the mare to determine the first day of estrus ("heat"), and then breed on day 3 of receptivity to the stallion, and every other day until the mare no longer shows receptivity. This may mean that the mare gets bred on days 3, 5 and possibly 7 of "standing heat", but if the stallion is present on farm and the farm is doing the collecting, then as there is no real extra expense, it becomes a very safe, practical way of breeding mares.
