Horse-Breeding Technology Works to Overcome Low Birth Rates


The operator of Dahomey Plantation farm and Mallard Manor waterfowl hunting resort, Jimmy Winemiller has established and directed agriculture and animal husbandry businesses, including Iron Horse Farm, a state-of-the-art thoroughbred facility that bred and trained horses. While affiliated with Iron Horse, Jimmy Winemiller learned a great deal about the science of equine breeding. 

The science of breeding horses is largely centered on efforts to overcome their naturally low birth rates in the wild. Like most animals with correspondingly low death rates, horses have the capacity to sustain just one, if any, pregnancy per year, and successful pregnancies result in just one foal. 

Thanks to advances in veterinary medicine and breeding technology, however, horse breeders have been able to significantly increase the breeding capacities of stallions and overcome many of the fertility issues that have plagued stallions and mares alike. Among major horse breeds, live-foal rates per cycle have consistently averaged between 60% and 65% for more than a quarter-century. This is a particularly impressive statistic in light of the significant increase in the scheduled breeding services of popular stallions over the same time period.

Rules and Regulations of Waterfowl Hunting

Real estate professional Jimmy Winemiller has an extensive career history that spans more than 50 years and multiple industries. In addition to his experience buying and selling commercial properties, Jimmy Winemiller also oversees the management of Mallard Manor, a farm located in Mississippi that caters to hunters, including waterfowl hunters.

Waterfowl hunting season in Mississippi begins each year around the end of September and runs to late January. In order to participate, hunters must purchase a small-game license, Mississippi waterfowl stamp, federal waterfowl stamp, and a certification from the Harvest Information Program.

In addition to completing the necessary paperwork, waterfowl hunters must also respect baiting laws, which forbid the use of feed bait to attract ducks and other waterfowl to a specific area in order to hunt them. Wild birds may only be hunted where they naturally migrate.

Legal equipment for waterfowl hunting includes shotguns that are smaller than 11-gauge, muzzle-loading shotguns, and archery weapons. Hunters typically wear waders during the process in order to walk through waterlogged swamp areas of Mississippi.
