Reproductive Services

Countryside has established a reputation as an advanced equine reproduction facility. Led by Dr. Becky Lillard and Dr. Cindy Backus, our equine veterinarians have over 60 years combined experience in reproduction. We provide complete pre-breeding evaluations for stallions and mares.

We have been performing successful artificial insemination with fresh and cooled semen for over 25 years, and insemination with frozen semen for over 10 years. We have been performing successful embryo transfers for more than 12 years.
