1_Besides A.I with raw semen we have the possibility to do it with semen that has to travelled several distances and also for several hours or even days. To do this we have to cool semen to a temperature around 5°C. For accomplishing this it is necessary the use of special containers that decrease semen temperature in a gradual form from 37°C to the desire 5°C. This containers may also maintain this temperature for up to 48 to 72 hours.

The processed and pre evaluated semen is extended so it can survive for 2 to 3 days inside the containers and probably accomplish a new gestation in an inseminated mare. This technique can be used to inseminate these mares far away from the stallion so you do not have to transport mares or stallions from one place to another, preventing possible stress and accidents and lower even costs.

BIOTEQ has the technology to achieve this cooled semen preparation and shipping. But we have to consider that cooled shipped semen has a lower fertility than raw semen, so overall expectations may be a little lower.
