KsCER's focus is to optimize the chance of success on each cycle of pregnancy. The industry average for artificial insemination with fresh and cooled semen is between 1.3 to 1.8 cycles per pregnancy (this is based on a typical stallion with good fertility and average mare book size, note that each horse is unique). KsCER, as a specialized center, improves on this average by conducting thorough evaluations of the mare including transrectal palpation and ultrasonography multiple times throughout the breeding process to determine if the mare is progressing normally and determine the optimal time to order semen. Once semen is ordered and received it is evaluated to determine motility, concentration and plasma membrane integrity. We then tailor our insemination procedures specific for the mare and semen combination. These procedures are offered as a standard package offered for mares managed on and off-site. The package approach allows us to evaluate the mares much more intensely without additional financial concerns for the mare owner.
