Our Equine Reproductive Services offers advanced assisted reproductive techniques to horse breeders seeking maximization of the reproductive potential of fertile horses or restoration of fertility for subfertile and infertile horses in New England.
It is our vision to offer advanced assisted reproductive techniques to horse breeders seeking maximization of the reproductive potential of fertile horses or restoration of fertility for subfertile and infertile horses in New England.
Our global objective is to have this program perceived as a source of advanced and modern reproductive techniques by the New England horse industry. Successful implementation of the Equine Assisted Reproduction program will encompass:
• The offering of commercial equine breeding services with emphasis on assisted reproduction techniques to horse breeders of Massachusetts and neighboring states;
• The conduct of clinical reproductive research to develop novel techniques and to improve existent assisted reproductive techniques;
• The training of advanced graduate/professional students to be proficient in performing advanced reproductive techniques or conducting research that utilizes assisted reproductive techniques as a research tool;
• The dissemination of scientific and technical information to equine practitioners through the realization of continuing education short courses and workshops.
