Breedtech is a veterinary reproduction company specializing in ovine and equine embryo transfer. It is not an ‘add-on’ service to a veterinary practice. It is for this reason that the operating skills are exceptional and results are consistently high.
Owner and Centre Veterinarian Simon Bell, has 22 years experience in the field of ovine artificial reproduction and has gained proficiency in all aspects of embryo transfer including embryo recovery, transfer and freezing. Breedtech services also include semen freezing and storage, artificial insemination and health testing. Breedtech has specialised exclusively in ovine reproduction since its inception in 2000. Breedtech consistently flushes over 1000 donors and freezes more than 2500 embryos for export each year. Breedtech was involved in the recovery of 30 000 embryos from just 200 Awassi ewes during a three year project between 2009 and 2012 and is currently exporting regularly to China.
Dr Rebecca Bell is the veterinarian responsible for equine reproduction at Breedtech. She is passionate about utilising specialist techniques such as embryo transfer for achieving breeding success that is otherwise unattainable in natural breeding programs. Rebecca’s approach to assisted reproduction techniques is built on a strong sense of horse welfare and intuitive handling.
BELFAST PERFORMANCE HORSES
A new type of performance horse is being developed at Belfast Performance Horses. It is a proudly Australian horse for modern Australian performance needs, particularly for eventing. The choice to breed eventers has come as a natural progression to utilise and improve the innate versatility of the Australian Stock Horse. The horse will have the desirable temperament of the Australian Stock Horse – quiet and intelligent and able to relax after competition; the superior athleticism of competitive jumping thoroughbred bloodlines; and the comfort, movement and strength from the best warmblood eventing sires.
