As a host herd you are an integral part of the process and invaluable for other breeders to be able to have their prized herdsires collected. You will have a few additional responsibilities in order to make collection day run smoothly. These include:

  • 8 buck minimum.
  • A level area for us to park and work in our mobile lab.
  • Ample room to turn around.
  • Access to adequate power.
  • The address of the collection site as well as a phone number and email address for the host. Once your stop is confirmed, we may need to ship a small box of supplies and pre-printed straws for safe keeping until the day of your collection.
  • A list of all buck owners coming to your stop for collection. We’ll need complete information including phone numbers and email addresses.
  • We start collecting bucks at 9:00AM so please have all participants on site by 8:00AM to complete the necessary paperwork.
  • Access to restrooms.
  • Farm fresh eggs preferably from free range chickens. Not more than 2-3 days old (same day is best) and not refrigerated. We need 1 egg per buck collected. Fresh eggs are vital for successful semen processing. We do not have access to farm fresh eggs while on the road so you must make sure you have them available.
