Stud Farm, Artificial Insemination, Embryo Transfer, and Fertility Services

During the 2009 stud season Ali O’Brien joined with St David’s Equine Practice specifically to develop the equine breeding side of the practice. Ali has spent the last 9 years working mainly in equine reproduction in Devon working for some of the larger studs in our area as well as helping private clients with their equine breeding work. He also has active links with both Twemlows Hall Stud Farm and West Kington Stud.

St David’s Equine Practice will offer a full range of equine breeding services as follows:

Artificial Insemination (BEVA listed)
Clinic-based or home-based artificial insemination with fresh, chilled or frozen semen using the more successful deep intrauterine technique. This will be performed by a vet with many years of experience of artificial insemination and high success rates.
