Victoria off to Germany!

August 27, 2013

On the 17th September Victoria leaves for a 3 week trip to Germany to visit and work at some of Germany’s most prestigious Hanoverian Studs, including Celle State Stud and PSI, as well as visiting GennTrans and The University of Hannover.  She will primarily be working with Dr Harold Seime, who is world renowned for his research in the area of stallion reproduction as well as Dr Jutta Klewitz who has been involved in the collection and freezing of hundreds of stallions at these studs.  All of us here (and especially Victoria!) are very excited about this fantastic experience, and we are looking forward to her bringing back lots of new techniques and information for us to use here in New Zealand and to share with our valued clients.

 During Victoria’s absence, Dr’s Fiona Hollinshead and Dave Hanlon will be available to answer any questions you may have about your breeding program and they are contactable on either 07 888 8197 or 07 888 8193.  Our helpful office staff will be able to assist you with any general information. Dot will continue to handle the on site care and management of your mare or stallion throughout their stay with us.

 Please direct any enquiries to or call us on 07 888 8193.

 Thank you and we look forward to seeing you soon for another successful season!
