Please note that due to the current COVID pandemic, all freight services are significantly reduced. Therefore arrival times may vary and we cannot guarantee arrival within your specified time frame. By proceeding you acknowledge that the exact ETA cannot be provided, however Sires On Ice will endeavour to have the semen arrive as quickly as possible for you.

 

TRANSPORT INTEGRITY IS THE KEY TO YOUR SEMEN ARRIVING IN THE SAME CONDITION AS WHEN IT WAS FROZEN

Why you should use Sires On Ice to coordinate your semen transport

  • With over 40 years experience successfully arranging the transport of semen within Australia and internationally, Sires On Ice are experts in frozen canine semen transport.
  • Our experience in collecting and preparing semen means we know how to manage the essential matters for successful transport, such as semen integrity, and the importance of safe transport.
  • Correct handling and storage of semen requires skill. Thousands of your dollars and years organising a mating can be destroyed by transport agents who lack expertise in semen integrity.

Factors affecting the quality of semen that you receive include:

  • The handling procedures followed.
  • How long the semen is in transit.
  • How many different people have handled your semen along the way, and their experience.
  • How well the storage conditions in the shipping container have been maintained and tracked.

Sires On Ice follows world’s best practice in semen transport by:

  • Appointing only internationally recognized freight and airline companies to transport our shipments.
  • Arranging import and export permits, and dealing with the Australian Quarantine requirements.
  • Tracking – Sires On Ice continuously monitors all consignments moving domestically or internationally until the shipment reaches its intended destination.
  • Transporting semen using specifically designed state-of-the-art cryogenic vapour shippers.
    Semen shippers are monitored and re-charged as required to maintain semen integrity all along the way.
  • Planning each shipment to minimize the time in which your dog’s semen is in transit and to manage costs (individual or joint shipment).
  • Taking reasonable precautions for the safety of the semen at all times.
  • Maintaining privacy of our clients.

Sires On Ice transports semen nationally daily and internationally frequently. We also have Sires On Ice storage facilities available in Australia, the UK, Europe and the USA.

Importation

Having bred and shown dogs for many years ourselves, we understand the importance of introducing new and exciting lines to your gene pool. We assist in taking the time and stress out of import procedures by making application on behalf of clients for permits to import quarantine material.

Sires On Ice follows world’s best practice in the handling and storage of your dog’s semen including taking all reasonable precautions for the safety of the semen at all times. Sires On Ice transports your frozen semen in specifically designed cryogenic liquid nitrogen vapor tanks/shippers which provide the maximum possible safety throughout the shipping process.

Individual or joint shipments can be arranged. Where possible we can arrange group shipments with others in order to share expenses and reduce the overall costs for our clients. We can also arrange urgent shipments upon request.

NOTE THAT CLIENTS NEED TO MAKE THEIR OWN ARRANGEMENTS WITH STUD DOG OWNERS TO ENSURE STUD DOGS ARE PRESENTED FOR COLLECTION, AND TO OBTAIN WHATEVER PAPERWORK IS NEEDED TO REGISTER THE SEMEN IN THEIR NAME WITH REGISTERING BODIES ONCE IMPORTED SUCCESSFULLY, OTHER THAN THE PAPERWORK RELATED TO THE SEMEN COLLECTION.

Sires On Ice appoints only recognized freight and airline companies to transport this precious cargo, and ensures that contact is maintained with all agencies and government bodies until the shipment reaches its intended destination.
