The minimum order of 5 straws is intended to ameliorate any shipping and handling charges. Import / export laws restrict our sales to buyers residing in the United States.
Due to the specialized storage and handling requirements of frozen semen, we are unable to calculate shipping costs at the time of purchase. Most of our semen is stored at Hawkeye Breeders Service in Adel, Iowa, with some also stored at JLG Enterprises in Oakdale, California. Depending on your distance from the storage facility, the cost of shipping typically ranges between $100 and $200 dollars. All questions regarding shipping should be referred to Hawkeye or JLG.
Buyers can specify the facility they would prefer to have the semen shipped from when they add a bull to their cart. Not all semen is present at both locations, and stock amounts vary. It is best to order all semen from the same facility so as not to incur double shipping charges.
Once payment has gone through, we will contact the specified facility to release the straws within several business days, and send an email confirming fulfillment of the order. The new owners must then contact Hawkeye or JLG to arrange delivery method and payment thereof. Alternatively, we usually make one trip to the mid-West each year, so it may possible to meet us rather than having it shipped. Contact us if you wish to inquire about this option.
