Semen samples can be submitted for any species. Semen is the recommended sample type for cattle sires.
Semen samples can be sent by courier or ordinary post, it is not necessary to keep them frozen in transit. However, they do need to be packaged well so the straw does not break or leak, for example, between two pieces of cardboard or in padded envelopes.
Semen extraction will incur a surcharge.
