Nomination - Visiting Mare with Non Resident Stallion


Please Note any semen that is being imported into the UK from abroad, whether chilled or frozen, must be accompanied by relevant health papers and an Intra Trade Certificate. It is against the law for us to inseminate semen that does not have these papers enclosed in the consignment. Clients must be aware that any semen arriving without health papers cannot be inseminated and therefore your mare will miss that cycle even though you may still be charged for collections & shipping. When choosing your stallion please inform the stallion owner that we require health papers to accompany the semen clearly stating CEM & EVA status of that stallion with the stud vets signature.
