Domestic Dispatch of Semen

May 16, 2012

‘Wet’ shippers (full with liquid nitrogen and therefore dangerous goods) and ‘dry’ shipper (liquid nitrogen is absorbed leaving no free liquid nitrogen) are used for the transport of frozen semen around New Zealand. Semen can either be air freighted airport-airport for same day delivery or overnight using New Zealand couriers for a more economical mode of transport. We ask that you contact us well in advance of the semen being required, so that we are able to co-ordinate tanks to meet your requirements. The beauty of frozen semen is that there shouldn’t be any last minute semen emergencies, as semen is able to be transported to your chosen destination for short term storage prior to the mare requiring insemination.
