    hay everyone,

    I wantto do AI this year on my does, another breeder was planning on shipping and splitting the fee, but she hasnt called or anything regarding which company she would ship from. I understand she os probably busy right now, But anyway; how much does shipping cost usually? i know its the same for 1 straw or 100. but has anyone ever shipped semen? I would have a place to store it. thanks.

    WE have shipped horse seman before but I can't remember the cost.
    One thing you have to make sure when shipping seman is that it hasn't been tampered with when it arrives at your place.
    One of our shipments had been opened.
    alot of people steal seman so you have to be careful and want to make sure it hasn't been opened.

    Oh my gosh, they actually opened it! Holy cow....that's really terrible. That'd be scary for the stallion/buck owner!

    :ROFL: Sorry, some random person stealing goat semen just cracked me up! Is there a "black market" in animal semen?

    I think they were more or less looking for bull seman not horse.
    People do lots of weird things.

    I had semen shipped two years ago and the cost just for shipping was 75.00.
    They ship in their container and include a tag so that UPS picks up the container and sends it back to them after you empty it.
