The horse insemination station developed from a pure large animal practice, because the development in agriculture made it necessary to find other pillars for the practice.
I was able to make my first attempts at insemination at the farm of my in-laws. During an ultrasound demonstration in the mid-eighties, I discovered the incredible additional diagnostic findings that the ultrasound examination brings. Then we decided to buy an ultrasound device, which was a decisive decision for today's success. His own mares were test subjects in gynecology and surgery. In 1990 we were lucky enough to look after the Holstein gray stallion COME ON in Bad Saulgau. There we were able to gain important experience with sperm collection and processing as well as mare management.
Thanks to fortunate circumstances, we were able to acquire the current practice in 1990.
In 1991 the first stallions - FERNANDO and LEUTHEN II - were stationed at the insemination station that was still under construction at the time. Over the years, this branch of business developed through constant development. Continuing education is becoming an increasingly important pillar.
We try to get interesting stallions on the farm and to make contacts with other insemination stations in order to be able to offer our breeders as many stallions as possible.
Until 1994 only leased stallions were stationed on the farm. The first own stallion CLEVERBOY was acquired for the new season. This worked successfully both in breeding and in sport.
Thanks to our dedicated commitment, the success of insemination with frozen semen is high. The breeders' distrust of frozen semen has been reduced over the years.
By taking on mares with interesting pedigree or S - successes that have not been in foal for years, special experience in the management of problem mares could be gained. We are particularly pleased to find that such mares are pregnant.
Among other things, Cera von Harm Thormählen has successfully become pregnant with us.
So that the service can be further improved, we decided in 2002 to build an exercise hall and a mare stable.
Meanwhile, breeders from all over Germany with their "problem mares" are among our customers.
Over the past few years, 200-250 mares have been inseminated on the farm every year.
We have been an approved EU embryo transfer station since 2013. Since then, ET irrigation has been increasingly used with good results.
