Two Farms to Offer Seasons to Separatist

Burns Ranch and JEH Reproduction Center will both offer breeding services for leading stallion Separatist.

Burns Ranch in California and JEH Reproduction Center in Texas will both offer frozen semen for Separatist this breeding season.

Horsemen wanting to breed to champion and world champion sire Separatist in 2014 will have the choice of ordering semen from two breeding establishments. The son of Chicks Beduino is currently in Brazil, where he bred the 2013 Southern Hemisphere season, and will return to the U.S. later this year.

Breeders in North America may purchase frozen semen from Burns Ranch near Menifee, California, where Separatist stood his entire U.S. career. Horsemen in the Midwest and South will have the ability for the first time to get frozen semen from JEH Reproduction Center near Whitesboro, Texas. Owned by a syndicate, Separatist’s 2014 fee is private, and horsemen are encouraged to call for more information.
