Import and Export of Semen | Equine Reproduction Services

By: Syenz  06-Dec-2011

The world is now our oyster … so the saying goes. We have on offer already a number of international sires who have frozen semen on storage in NZ but if you have a particular sire you want that is not listed, we may be able to help.

Managing the red tape

Syenz can help breeders with the import or export of frozen semen. We are experienced with the details involved in MAF Inspection, Custom's Clearance, obtaining permits, International Health Certification, arranging air transport or freight forwarding, and inspection/inventory of imported genetics upon arrival.

That is one less headache for you to worry about.

Export accreditation pending

The success of our NZ event horses internationally has created an interest for semen from NZ eventing sires. At Syenz we are keen to take NZ bloodlines to the world!

Our facilities and paper work is currently being updated to meet the stringent requirements of MAF in terms of exporting semen from NZ based sires overseas. This facility will be available from spring 2008. Our first shipment of semen from Tiger Moth LS is due in the USA for their spring.

If you are interested in exporting semen from your NZ based sire, please get in touch and we will let you know as soon as approval comes through.

Other products and services from Syenz


Home | Equine Reproduction Services

We can teach your stallion to collect safely, teach you how to manage the collection process or we can do the collection for you if it is a “one-off” occurrence. There is certainly a growing interest these days in individual owners with a nice colt deciding to keep and compete them as a stallion in the years to come. You don’t need a big stud farm and acreage to cope with mares arriving at the gate. The backyard breeder has come of age.


Artificial Insemination | Equine Reproduction Services

Even with the best procedures in place the success of frozen semen is only 30-40% pregnancy rate per cycle and will vary based on both the mare and the semen used and the operator performing the insemination. Following on from the work in managing the mares reproductive cycle, Syenz will organise for the shipment of semen and insemination of the mare at Longspring; or other location by special arrangement.


Embryo Transfer | Equine Reproduction Services

Embryo transfer offers mare owners the opportunity to “harvest” fertilised eggs from their top mare that is unable to carry a foal due to poor uterine condition (this does also reduce the chance of harvesting embryos) or being in competition; and inseminating into a mare that has been fully synchronised in her oestrus cycle.


Supervised Foaling and Post Natal care | Equine Reproduction Services

In line with our foaling service, we can also provide round the clock care for a sick foal that may need regular injections, bandages changed, stomach tubing with milk, or re-hydration with fluids through intravenous drips. This is also important as throughout this time the mare is exposed to the natural pathogens in the local environment and develops immunity that is passed on to the foal through the mares colostrum.
