Next yr i'll be training my stallion to a dummy so I will have the option of AI and Shipping Semen.

Now my question is..

What is involved in shipping semen (within canada)

I have a lady interested in my stallion and she is in a different province then I.

Who ships the semen? Me or my Vet or? and where would they ship it to? The mare owner or there vet?

Thanks ANY info would be greatly appreciated!

There are no health restrictions with respect to shipping equine semen within Canada. You will need to ship it by courier or airline. If you are shipping by airline (counter to counter) you will need "known shipper status" in order to get the semen on the flight of your choice.

Exactly who will ship the semen and to where it will be sent will depend greatly upon a variety of incidental and variable things.

If your vet or another collection business is doing the collections, then it may well be that they will also ship the semen. For example, we do on-farm collections and will make all arrangements regarding the shipment of the semen if desired. OTOH, some vets and businesses will only come in and collect and process the semen and then hand the packed container to you to do the rest.

Where you ship the semen to will depend upon the desires of the mare owner. Some may want the semen shipped to their vet (for example, the mare may be resident at the vets facility for breeding), while others may want the semen shipped to the mare owners farm (where the mare is and the vet will inseminate). That is an important question that you will need to ask the mare owner prior to shipment! :-)

In most cases, the collection and shipping costs (both ways on returnable containers) are the responsibility of the mare owner (this will however depend upon your breeding contract).

Ask questions of the mare owner ahead of time, and make sure everyone has a contract that explains respective responsibilities!!! :-)

Thanks Jos!!!

So the shipping costs is up to the mare owner to pay then?

What about a collection fee? is there one or is that included in the breeding fee?

As I noted above, there are variables.

In the warmblood industry (which has used shipped semen the longest of all breeds as a whole), the collection fee may be in addition to the stud (or breeding) fee, or there may be 1, 2 or 3 collections included in the stud fee, and then after that there is an additional charge for the collection. Whether there are collections included in the stud fee will depend greatly on how high the stud fee is - obviously if it's only $500, there's not much sense in including 3 collections from the stallion owners perspective!!! :-)

The shipping (i.e. courier) fees are almost always the responsibility of the mare owner. Again though, there may be some stallions whose stud fees include the shipment costs - generally the higher end stallions (with the higher end stud fees!).
