I have a stallion with an interested mare owner in Australia. Fortunately, there is a repro vet just down the road that already has the certification for the testing of stallions that will have semen exported. I talked to the vet yesterday about the testing process for CEM and I realize that it could take several weeks-months, depending on a variety of factors.

Does anyone have any experience going through this process and how long it took to successfully complete? Costs? (I know that cost can vary greatly)

Also, is the CEM testing a one time thing, meaning once we do it and freeze the semen for later use, we should not have to do it again? The vet said that the stallion cannot cover mares...I assumed that means he cannot cover mares only during the testing period and up until the semen for freezing is collected, but after that process is done he can again?

Thanks for any input. I'm a newbie to the breeding business, although I have done a lot of live cover work for friends over the years.

Also, when breeders go through this process for the first time, do they account for all these expenses in the fee for the mare owner, or do they view this as a 'start up' cost?

I had just assumed that it would be considered a start up cost, but it seems that the costs would be astronomical and it only makes sense to try and regain the losses somewhere in the stud fee or collection costs charged to the buyer.

CEM testing for semen export to Australia is not that complicated, and shouldn't take too long. Here is the applicable regulation from the AQIS site:

7. Taylorella asinigenitalis:

Commencing at least 7 days after entering the approved collection centre, the donor stallion and any teaser mares used, were tested, with negative results, for Taylorellaasinigenitalisby culture of swabs, collected on 3 occasions at intervals of 5 to 9 days, taken from:
  • donors: the penile sheath, the urethra and the urethral sinus and, if applicable,
  • teaser mares: the clitoral fossa including the clitoral sinuses, and on one occasion from the endometrium of each teaser mare whilst in oestrus.
To review all of the regulations concerning shipment of semen from the USA to Australia, go to the AQIS page on the subject. For those interested in semen export to Australia from a country other than the USA, go to this page.
