On this episode of On The Rail Podcast, we sit down with Chelsea Sinclair, a faculty member at Clemson University's Animal and Veterinary Sciences department, as well as an accomplished breeder, competitor, and stallion owner/manager. Chelsea holds an MS and PhD in equine reproduction and has a wealth of knowledge to share on the topic.
We start off by learning more about Chelsea's personal background in the horse industry before delving into her current breeding, raising, and showing activities. Then, we get into the nitty-gritty details of multiple breeding technologies. We discuss the ins and outs of live cover, cooled and frozen semen, embryo transfer, frozen embryo, and ICSI. Chelsea gives us insights into what each method involves, who it's best for, and the average success rates and costs associated with each.
