Thanks to our central location, we have refrigerated semen from a large number of stallions in Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany available.  Semen is collected in the morning and arrives in our AI centre in the afternoon on a 24/7 basis (including Saturdays and Sundays) from February till the end of September.


Our modern laboratory is certified by the European authorities (NW90/22 BN98/09). We have a team of experienced veterinary surgeons at your disposal for coaching problem mares, insemination with frozen semen, deep intra-uterine insemination.
