How to Collect Semen from Stallions While They Are Standing on the Ground
  by Robert N. Oglesby DVM

With the rapid increase of shipped semen the need to collect from stallions without the benefit of a mare in standing heat has become a common problem. Traditionally, using a dummy mount was the solution but required training and can be an expensive, space consuming investment. Other problems make mounting difficult for a stallion including: lameness, incoordination, and difficult to breed mares all would benefit. Edited from a presentation given to the 1999 AAEP meeting, this article discusses the techniques used to train a stallion ejaculate into a AV while standing on the ground.

This article is an edited version of the notes to a lecture given to the AAEP in 1999 by Barbara D. Forney, MS VMD and Sue M. McDonnell, PhD.

There are two techniques that have been successful. The first technique uses an artificial vagina (AV) and the second technique uses manual stimulation of the penis. The first technique is easier to learn, but the second has the advantage of requiring only a disposable nonspermicidal plastic bag to collect the sample.
