Phantom training consists of teaching the stallion to mount a "phantom" mare and ejaculate into an artificial vagina. The stallion is collected one time the first day, and then on two occasions, one hour apart on the next day, or day after. The first of the two collections is discarded, serving only as a "clean-up". The second and third collections are taken at least one hour apart, and both samples are evaluated for sperm concentration, motility and morphology, and extension.
Phantom training of stallion: $200.00 per session*
*Sessions are for a one hour period
*minimum of 2 sessions for evaluation & shipping purposes
Once the stallion has been collected it is advisable to evaluate the ability of the stallion's semen to ship in an Equitainer, cooled. The semen is evaluated and extended using several different extenders and concentrations. Samples are then packed in the Equitainer and evaluated at several different times: 24 hours, 48 hours and possibly 72 hours.
Collection of ejaculate and evaluation for on-site insemination: $100.00*
Collection of ejaculate, evaluation, and extension: $150.00*
Collection of ejaculate, evaluation, extension, and FedEx shipment: $250.00**
Equitainer deposit (refundable upon return): $300.00 (credit card number required)
*Prices are based on stallion owners handling their own stallions. Handlers are available at $50/hour, if needed. Since collection prices are based on a one hour session, if additional time is required, price increases at a $100/hour rate.
**All fees must be paid prior to shipment.
All prices are in US dollars.
