Stallion AI Services are to feature on tomorrow night’s Countryfile!
A few weeks ago, Adam Henson and his team visited the Shropshire facility to find out more about their work with the RBST and the Gene Bank to secure the survival of some of our most valued native breeds for future generations. It’s truly amazing to see how the very latest modern technology and research can play such an important role in the protection of entire species and the preservation of our British heritage!
Situated in rural Shropshire, Stallion AI Services is one of the most exciting and innovative equine businesses to have come out of Britain in recent years. Under the leadership of Tullis Matson, Stallion AI Services has become a global centre of excellence for equine semen collection, freezing and export, standing stallions of international renown and pushing the boundaries on technology, research and development.
Tullis Matson explains the philosophy that has shaped the Stallion AI Services success story:
“We are a small and unique company with a big heart and a global outreach. Just this year, we invested £1.5m in a world-leading state-of-the art facility, collecting and preserving semen from hundreds of stallions, from rare breed ponies to the Olympic legends. Our team is passionate about what we do, for the international sport as well as for the preservation of some of our rarest and most valuable gene pools.”
The secret to the company’s success lies in its strong team ethic and a “no-compromise” commitment to excellence, reflected in ongoing investment in research and development that put the company at the very forefront of technological innovation and scientific discovery worldwide.
Stallion AI Services’ semen collection and treatment process is the best in the world to deliver optimum fertility rates and an outstanding service to stallion and mare owners alike. Following the premise that “happy stallions produce happy semen”, every stallion coming to the centre receives a full VIP treatment, including a bespoke exercise, nutrition and handling regime that leads the way in equine welfare and management.
In addition to its vital contribution to the future of equine breeding for the very top of the sport, Stallion AI Services is committed to social and ethical responsibility in a time when some of our valuable native breeds are in a precarious position of ever dwindling numbers.
The company is taking a leading role in using the very latest technology to ensure the survival of endangered breeds by preserving their genes for future generations.
Through ground-breaking work with the RBST and Chester Zoo, the company has been able to branch out into other rare and protected species, including elephants and rhinos, thus holding the key to future bio-diversity.
Tullis Matson sums up the company’s vision:
“We continuously push the boundaries, to make the impossible possible.”
