Quipolly Equine Centre is Australia’s latest Equine Reproductive Centre to be custom built and opened for business in November, 2010. Located at Quirindi on the Liverpool Plains, Quipolly is the centre of the largest equine region Australia bordered by Tamworth to the north and Scone to the south.
Scone is known as ‘The Horse Capital of Australia’ and is the second-largest horse breeding area in the world after Kentucky in the United States. This region boasts the largest breed Societies in Australia; The Australian Stock Horse Society, The Australian Quarter Horse Association, The Australian Bushman’s Campdrafting and Rodeo Association and the National Cutting Horse Association.
Situated on 280 acres the Centre is a dedicated breeding facility where mares are artificially inseminated with cool shipped or frozen semen, embryo’s are retrieved and transferred from performance mares, stallions are housed for semen collections and transport around Australia or frozen for future use. The centre has facilities that not only include paddocks and runs for the horses, but laboratories for handling and storing semen, embryos or oocyte’s (horse eggs). These facilities allow Quipolly Equine Centre to be a specialised centre in all areas of assisted breeding techniques and stallion management. The breeding season typically commences in August and continues until March the next year.
