- a-Adrenergic agents can
successfully induce ex copula ejaculation in stallions with injuries that
would preclude normal sexual arousal, mounting, or thrusting.
- Genetic material from valuable stallions with
life-threatening or debilitating injuries can be preserved by freezing semen
obtained by pharmacologically induced ejaculation.
