Unfortunately, it is not quite as simple as just having a veterinarian lined up to collect the semen...

Semen for export has to be collected under strict quarantine conditions at facilities approved by USDA-Aphis for the collections, and only after the stallion having undergone special health tests and checks. Semen previously collected will not be eligible for export unless it was collected under those conditions.
You should be able to obtain the requirements by reviewing the AQIS website.

My gut instinct tells me that the semen you currenlty have access to will not be eligible for exportation, but let's hope I'm wrong...!

I cant even imagine the costs of shipping a horse from Montana to Australia!!! Shipping one 6 hours from US to Canada cost about 1000US. Must be some kind of stallion!

it is going to cost me $16,000 AU all up.But the thing is anything esp homozygous and being b/w fetchesalot of money around $2,800+ and the foal are about weaners are around $7-10,000 depending on colour and breeding of an imported stallion compared to about $1-2,000
And the vet is a qualified vet to do it what health checks do you need nothing has been collected at this time!!

If you follow the link I provided above for the AQIS web site, it will provide you with a list of the requisite tests for the stallion, and the requirements for approval of the collection center. Note that the requirements for the collection facility are quite stringent, and other animals on the property must also be tested for the same diseases as the stallion (it is possible that this may be avoided if there is a strict quarantine arrangement for the breeding animals, but you would have to clarify that with the USDA-Aphis vet). Note too that a vet accredited for checks related to the export of the horse may not be accredited for checks related to the export of semen - somthing else to confirm with USDA-Aphis.

It can be done (and is), but be prepared for delays getting the tests and facility approval completed. You may have the stallion home before the semen! :-)

Just came across this link and thought you might find it interesting. I recognise that the site is talking about importing semen to NZ, not OZ, but many of the same regulations (and therefore costs) apply.
