In light of the current economics facing breeders today, Walmac Farm has announced a “breeders stimulus plan” applicable to 2009 stud fees. The plan will include a breeder option to pay all stud fees from the proceeds of the sale of either the foal or yearling produced from the breeding.
In addition, the plan will allow every Walmac Farm breeding contract to provide the breeder with an option to convert every mating to a foal share arrangement within 30 day of foaling, The “breeders stimulus plan” will apply to all nominations sold for stallions standing at Walmac Farm in Kentucky and Walmac in Pennsylvania.
“Bobby Trussell, co-owner of Walmac Farm, and I have talked extensively about the need for an across the board assistance package for 2009 breedings, since markets of every variety worldwide are at a standstill,” said Walmac managing director John T.L. Jones III. “We hope this creates a win/win situation for mare and stallion owners alike.”
Some of the stallions standing at Walmac Farm in Kentucky are Successful Appeal , Songandaprayer , Cactus Ridge, and newcomers Ready's Imageand Salute the Sarge. Walmac in Pennsylvania stands Eavesdropper, Ecclesiastic, One Great Cat, and Senor Swinger.
Walmac will have a stallion show Saturday, Dec. 13, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Kentucky farm near Lexington. The Pennsylvania farm will have a show Jan. 17.
