Sixth Annual Stallion Service Auction to Benefit LSU’s Equine Health Studies Program



BATON ROUGE—The LSU School of Veterinary Medicine announces its sixth annual Stallion Service Auction September 15–December 15, 2006.  The event is a multiple-breed, internet-based benefit auction for the LSU School of Veterinary Medicine’s Equine Health Studies Program (EHSP) to expand and renovate the Equine Clinic, including the Equine Isolation Unit.

The Equine Clinic provides advanced veterinary care and state-of-the-art services for equine patients.  “Due to the expanding Louisiana horse industry, the Equine Clinic case load increases each year.  To continue to provide efficient, quality care, it is necessary to expand the School’s facilities,” said Dr. Rustin M. Moore, director of the EHSP.


Through an Internet
Web site, http://www.lsuequine.com, stallion owners donate a breeding session with their stud, either by live cover or by artificial insemination, to be bid on by mare owners locally, nationally and internationally for the upcoming 2007 breeding season.  Auction bidding begins on the service at 50% or less of the standard stud fee so interested bidders have an opportunity for reduced-rate breeding to top quality stallions.  Donors of breeding services also benefit from extensive marketing and advertising of their stallions and farms via the internet and equestrian publications.


Bidding begins September 15, and the site is open for potential bidders and donors to
view.  The first round of bidding will close on October 27, and the final round will close on December 15.  Donations are welcomed and invited.  Donations, including donated breeding services, are tax deductible for the fair market value regardless of the winning bid price.


The event, now in its sixth year, has raised funds for expanding the EHSP
.  This year’s proceeds will go toward the construction of a new Equine Isolation Unit, which will be used to hospitalize critically ill horses with infectious and potentially contagious disease. This new state-of-the-art facility will replace the current two-stall isolation unit, and will enable the School to more effectively and safely treat horses with these conditions.  A portion of the funds will also go toward offsetting the costs associated with the rescue, treatment, shelter, feeding and rehabilitation of nearly 500 horses rescued from Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.  Please visit  http://www.vetmed.lsu.edu or http://www.lsuequine.com for more information about the School of Veterinary Medicine’s Equine Health Studies Program.
