Send or receive frozen semen world-wide.
Accessing new bloodlines for your breed
The semen is stored in liquid nitrogen until the time of the AI and the semen is thawed, tested to ensure the semen is of good quality, quantity prior to administering this into the bitch. Clients also have semen frozen and stored with ourselves for future breeding programmes.
At the time of the Semen Collection, tease bitch is presented to the stud dog to help him to become stimulated, and the semen is then collected, analysed and the figures from the collection will be discussed with you by a member of our specialist team. The semen evaluation includes the volume, concentration, total sperm output, motile sperm and net sperm value. At this point we will be able to advise how many 0.5ml straws can be made with the semen.
After the freezing procedure, a sample straw is then thawed out to provide the Post Thaw % Motile Sperm figure, based on this, we can advise how many straws are required for a breeding to be either stored or shipped.
We look to ship 200 million sperms per Trans-Cervical Insemination and 100 million sperm per Surgical Insemination.
