Brighthill Offers Unique Breeders' Incentives

Monday, 8th June 2020

New Zealand’s Brighthill Farm has come up with a unique offering for breeders leading into the new breeding season, reports NZ Racing Desk. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Waikato farm has elected to reduce the service fees of all three of their stallions and offer two payment options to breeders. “We are all looking at the times in front of us and everything is uncertain,” Brighthill Farm principal Nick King said. “Our primary thinking behind it was really to help people keep breeding mares. As we all know breeding mares is a project where you don’t reap the rewards until sometimes two years later. It’s a long-term project and we are all very hopeful in the next couple of years we will be in good shape.” King noted, “It’s how you can assist breeders getting through these years, so we sat down with our stallion owners and came up with this initiative. We lowered service fees on all three stallions and set-up two payment options for people. One is a 10 percent discount on payment of 42 days (positive pregnancy test) or a payment plan breaking the payments up to six equal payments over six months. We are trying to make it as cost-effective as we could for them to keep going and breeding their mares.”
