Semen Collection

Be prepared to maintain your stock bull’s genetics in your herd should anything happen to him

Our on farm semen collection service is delivered by our experienced vets with specialist technician support. The application process for approval of bulls for semen collection can be completed by us on your behalf – we will follow the process through from start to finish.

Our vets and technicians will advise you on the best way to prepare your bull for semen collection depending on your needs. We collect on your own farm to avoid unnecessary movement of your bull, and all collections are performed to domestic distribution standards (UK mainland only).

Once the short quarantine period has ended, we can provide storage of any frozen AI straws until you are ready to use on your farm.
