Artificial Insemination Packages


1) Artificial Insemination with chilled semen
£200 plus vat per cycle (plus in foal fee*)

2) Artificial Insemination with frozen semen
£300 plus vat per cycle (plus in foal fee*)

These set price packages are for veterinary work carried out on in-season mares at Brackenspa Stud or Tower Farm only. Prices include:

  • All ultrasound examinations
  • Endometrial swabs if required
  • Insemination
  • Assessment of semen motility
  • All drugs to ensure insemination is performed at the optimum time
  • Post-ovulation examination
  • A single post-ovulation uterine treatment if required
  • Ultrasound pregnancy examination at 15 or 16 days
  • 7 days grass keep**

The contract does not include clitoral swabs, strangles serology, prostaglandin, treatment for persistent endometritis requiring lavage, twinning, regumate, caslick operations, foaling and foal associated problems and treatment of any illness or injury to the mare or foal.

The packages operate when mares are in season. Initial breeding examinations and PG injections for dioestrus mares are not included.

*In Foal Fee

In additional one-off fee of £150 plus vat will be charged for all mares that leave scanned in foal to chilled or frozen semen.

This fee allows us to keep our ‘per cycle’ costs much lower. You only pay the fee if we successfully get your mare in foal, so it saves you money too. This is because it may take two or even three cycles to get a mare in foal, and with a high ‘per cycle’ cost, vet’s bills rise rapidly. If we don’t succeed, you don’t pay this fee.

**Keep Fees

7 days grass keep are included in the package prices.

Should your mare remain at the AI Centre for over 7 days, keep will be charged as follows:

GRASS KEEP - Brackenspa Stud and Tower Farm

£10 per day grass keep - £12.50 per day grass keep with foal at foot
