Astek offers a unique service whereby you can bring your mare and make use of the facilities to achieve a pregnancy. Vets are on hand most days during the busy stud season.
For this service you pay a flat fee of $100 plus gst for the season and will be advised when vets are due.
Agistment option for breed season
.Astek can agist your mare at a daily charge (see download for contract options)
A one off fee of $100 plus gst per cycle will apply for fresh semen and $200 plus gst for frozen semen.
Mares are covered and fed twice daily hard feed and hay. Farrier work is charged out separately and mares will normally stay until they have had their 42 day pregnancy scan. Both local vet clinics offer a competitive 3 cycle contract rate for their services (see downloads available).
In conjunction with Equibreed NZ, Astek is proud to offer clients the option of ET for those wishing to breed using a special mare whilst she is still in work.
Warren Mitchell of Town and Country vets has successfully flushed Embryos in the 2016/17 season for us and we eagerly await those three foals out of the Recipient mares, all full brothers and sister out of my very special Kinnordy Gabriela by Astek Quatermaster.
