Frozen Semen & Storage

Sire management procedures and understanding the peculiarities of each sire is essential for prolonging the active working life of a sire.

It also facilitates the collection of quality semen which is more likely to sustain the rigours of processing to -196°C.

  Professional Pelleted Canine Freezing System - the semen is frozen in pellets and vials (ampoules). 

Pelleted Canine Freezing System Advantages:

  1. Nr. of Breedings: Pellets provide more breedings per collection than straws.
  2. Precision: Pellets allow for more accurate dosing, as individual pellets can contain a specific amount of semen, ensuring consistency in insemination.
  3. Less Volume: Pellets generally take up less storage space than straws, which can be beneficial for long-term storage.
  4. Reduced Risk of Contamination: Since each pellet is individually sealed, the risk of contamination during thawing and handling is minimized.
  5. Thawing Flexibility: Pellets can be thawed individually, allowing breeders to use only what's needed for each insemination, potentially reducing waste.
