Chilled semen gives you access to a broad range of sires across Australia and New Zealand. At Embryonix, we have a vet onsite 24 hours a day to ensure your mare is bred as close to ovulation as possible. Mares are closely monitored, up to every hour if needed. There is no need to take your mare back and forth and travel long distances. At Embryonix the whole process is carried out on site for your convenience and your mares comfort.
Embryonix is located only 2 hours south of Sydney Airport and has a courier returning 4 times a day from the Airport which makes it easy to arrange chilled semen from all over the country and New Zealand.
Embryonix includes most drugs and procedures when breeding your mare. This eliminates add-ons, and makes our price structure much more user friendly.
What is included: The set fee includes all follicle testing, artificial insemination, post ovulation scanning and basic post insemination treatments, which improve conception rates. The semen is also warmed in an incubator and examined and graded for percentage alive and progressive motility. It also includes most reproductive drugs including prostaglandin, an ovulatory drug such as deslorelin, and oxytocin. Post ovulation infusions with saline containing antibiotics or plasma are included. All disposables used are included in the fee, including non-spermicidal syringes and AI pipettes. Also included is organization for the delivery to the clinic of chilled semen.
What is not included: There are a few drugs which are used infrequently and are not therefore included in the price, for example systemic antibiotics and altrenogest. Also sedation of difficult mares is not included. The reason for this is that they are not routinely used therefore it would be unfair to the majority of mare owners to incur expense for these when used in such few cases. The set fee does not include pregnancy testing, any swabs or uterine biopsies, caslick operations or investigations of infertility. Chilled semen transportation is arranged but the cost of the transport is not included nor is the return of any semen shippers.
