Official Start Of Breeding Season September 101 Sep 2014
Only the produce of natural services are accepted by the Australian Stud Book. Foals produced by any artificial means are not permitted into the Australian Stud Book under international protocols. This specifically means artificial insemination, embryo transfer, cloning and genetic manipulation. We hope studs and breeders Australia wide are able to fulfill their mating plans for their stallions and broodmares, and wish them all well for the coming season.
