Investigation of methods for storage of stallion semen at ambient temperature.

Summary

This is a preliminary study to investigate the longevity of stallion semen extended with currently available equine semen extenders and a bovine extender (Long Last Liquid) at 5C and at ambient temperature. Storage of fresh equine semen for longer periods of time than are currently successful will allow greater flexibility in using artificial insemination in mares that reside long distances from the stallion.
