As in women, the OPU (oocyte puncture) is a method of assisted fertilization, it allows you to collect your mare's oocytes directly from the ovary in order to fertilize them individually by the ICSI technique (intracytoplasmic injection of sperm)

Even if the results are unequaled compared to other techniques: ICSI is not always a miracle solution and is not suitable for all mares, its success depends on many parameters:

Number of follicles: Obviously, the more follicles your mare has at the time of the puncture, the greater the chance of obtaining results.

Age, race, gynecological history are all individual variables.

Only a first attempt can determine if the mare is a good embryo donor

Everything is done so that the oocyte retrieval causes a minimum of discomfort for the mare. The sedation, analgesia and speed of our operators help animal well-being. The vast majority of mares eat again quietly in their stables a few minutes after a puncture.

The embryo freezing process maintains the initial qualities ad vitam aeternam. Thus no difference in reimplantation rate is recorded depending on the storage period (under good conditions)

From the end of February, our herd of 200 recipient mothers is operational to practice reimplantation. The rental takes place on the 45th day of gestation.

These mares are for the most part young trotters of height superior to 1.60m, manipulated and kind.

BLH guarantees that the semen used to fertilize your mare's oocytes has been flawlessly traceable and has the necessary health certificates for the re-import of the embryos.
The oocytes are always accompanied by health certificates, which is why we carry out health analyzes on your mare.
