COLLECTION LABORATORY

An approved facility for collection and export of frozen semen.

Oswood Stallion Station, Inc. finalized the construction of a state of the art semen collection and freezing laboratory in November of 2013. The entire facility is 3000 square feet, with 1500 square feet equally divided between the collection and processing rooms. This laboratory offers multiple appealing amenities to the daily collecting, processing, freezing, packaging, and shipping of equine semen. By continuing to stay current with semen manipulation protocols such as centrifugation and equipure, the staff at Oswood Stallion Station, Inc. is able to offer the best finalized semen product possible to our customer. Along with semen processing for stallions standing at Oswood Stallion Station, Inc., we also provide semen improvement for received shipments to mares being housed on-site, should a less than satisfactory dose be provided initially.

The laboratory is separated into two areas: PROCESSING and FREEZING
1) One allowing for processing on-site doses and cooled shipped semen
2) The other allows for freezing semen for domestic and international purposes.

FREEZING DEPARTMENT
Found within the freezing section of the laboratory are three storage rooms, each one is specifically dedicated to
1) Domestic
2) European Union
3) other International destinations

All of the USDA import/export documentation and the required testing is handled by the staff at Oswood Stallion Station, Inc. in a professional and timely manner.

As an approved facility for export of frozen semen, we take pride in the product we ship and strive to supersede all others in our technique and finalized product.

OSS VISION

The vision of Jeff Oswood, when building this new laboratory, was to not only provide his stallion owners with the best opportunity for their stallion’s reproductive success, but also offer those services to outside stallion owners interested in beginning their stallion’s career, or preserving the legacy their stallion’s will eventually leave behind.

ON-SITE BREEDING

Because of state of the art facilities in the highly technical breeding operation, and the comfort and condition of an owner’s mare of constant importance, the services to an on-site mare are such that an owner always knows his valuable program is being protected. The mare receives full attention, and all normal reproduction costs are covered within the chute fee and breeding fee. This includes palpations, inseminations and ultra-sound charges.

COOLED SEMEN

For the mare owner who chooses to keep his mare at home, Oswood Stallion Station offers the convenience of scheduled service from FedEx as well as in-house courier services to the airport. These well-organized transport services assure both door-to-door or airport counter-to-counter convenience. Cooled semen involves the following charges:
