We have a long history of a strong caseload in client mare fertility and breeding management, also including assisted reproduction technologies such as transvaginal oocyte aspiration, ET, etc. In small animals we offer transcervical insemination, culture and biopsy services, semen analysis and freezing, in addition to and as part of our infertility, breeding and whelping management program. Of note, resident herds of horses (mares and stallions) and cattle are kept at the OSU CVM Ranch for deep hands-on experience with breeding management, semen analysis and freezing, as well as teaching and research purposes. Finally, due to the dual appointment of one of our diplomates with American Institute of Goat Research at Langston University, 1600 goats comprising of dairy, meat, and fiber goats can be accessible.
