Time will be called through the chatroom on the sales page and also be clearly audible through the livestreamed video.
Delivery will be given from the storage facility and the vendors will notify the Breeding centres to release the semen to the purchasers at the conclusion of the sale. Almost all the semen is in storage at Xcell breeding services in Rangiora, except for Turihaua Crump and Glanworth Waigroup 08-16 semen which is stored at Tararua Breeding Centre in Woodville.
Semen from Turihaua Crump, Meadowslea F540, Meadowslea N166, and Glanworth Waigroup 08-16 is eligible for export to Australia
Vendors note: The semen catalogued is a limited release with many of the older bulls now past the age of collection, and with only a limited number of straws retained for the vendors use only. If a decision is made to sell anymore semen this season then the price per straw will be higher than the price received at auction.
