Beyond®: The extender for long-term storage of chilled stallion semen

Game-changer for the horse breeding industry
Today, storage of chilled stallion semen is limited to only 3-4 days with the available extenders. Therefore, timing is very important at every step of artificial insemination (AI) in horses. Semen must be processed and shipped quickly, and insemination has to be perfectly synchronized with the mare‘s ovulation.

With Beyond®, semen storage is finally possible for up to 14 days at +5°C.

The development of Beyond® marks a revolutionary improvement of stallion semen preservation. Ejaculates of high initial quality can now be stored for up to two weeks post collection. More than just being a storage medium, Beyond® contains many high-grade ingredients that maintain the fertility of the sperm. 

Beyond® opens a whole new perspective for the horse breeding industry, allowing longer storage, and shipping times. It also reduces the amounts of weekly semen collections from highly demanded stallions, which is an important improvement of efficiency of stallion stud farms and of animal welfare.
