Ordering Frozen Semen from Celle National State Stud


Information for ordering frozen semen from the Celle National State Stud

The Canadian Hanoverian Society is the exclusive distributor in Canada for frozen semen available for export by the Celle National State Stud (Landgestüt Celle).  If you intend to order frozen semen from Celle please follow the instructions below and make sure that your order form and payment is received by no later than January 25, 2020.

Members of the Canadian Hanoverian Society, the American Hanoverian Society and the Canadian Warmblood Breeders Association receive a 20% discount from list price.  After January 25, 2020 orders will only be filled from an inventory of selected stallions that we have on hand.  The list of stallions and prices, available from the Celle export list and in our inventory, is on the CHS website under “Ordering Frozen” and will be updated once we have placed and received our new inventory order with Celle.

A new list of stallions available for export from Celle should be posted on their website sometime before about mid December, 2019.  Below are the instructions for accessing this list.  Ordering information, an order form and the CHS price list is also posted on the CHS website, www.canadianhanoverian.com under “Ordering Frozen”.  All prices are in Canadian dollars and payment is due in Canadian dollars.

You can order frozen semen from the full stallion list posted on the Celle website by following the instructions below.  The list on the Celle website is currently dated November 29, 2019.  Wait to place your order until this list is updated.  Should the list not be updated by January 25, 2020 order from the list on Celle’s website.

This brings up the list of stallions available for export.  You can order all of these stallions except those that are marked:

  • Only throughout the EU
  • Not for Canada and the US
  • Only National

Frozen semen from these stallions is packaged in a breeding dose usually containing 3, 4 or 8 pipettes (straws) of 0.5 ml each, although a few stallions are packaged with a different number of straws.  Every order is filled with the exact number of straws per breeding dose as shipped from Celle.

Payment must reach Greta Haupt by January 25, 2020 for orders from the Celle listThe order will then be placed with Celle, we get an Import Permit for the shipment and dry shippers are sent to the State Stud.  The shipment should arrive and once cleared by CFIA should be available by late March or early April.

We use Dr. Claire Plante DVM to store and ship the semen.  Her address is: 7666 – 8th Line, Nichol Township, Guelph, Ontario N1H 6J2, tel (519) 820-3999.  The shipping charge per dose pays for all the costs to get your semen order into storage at Dr. Plante’s facility and to ship it out so long as Dr. Plante has more than 48 hours’ notice of shipping.  If shipping is requested with less than 48 hours’ notice an extra fee of $100.00 will be billed by Dr. Plante.  As well, if Dr. Plante has to charge a dry shipper the cost is $70.00.

Please note that all orders must include the Importation/shipping/handling fee including those from our inventory.  This fee covers the following:  the cost to bring the shipment from Germany, insurance for the shipment including our inventory year round, the annual cost to store our inventory and a fee charged by Dr. Plante to prepare and ship each order (one time).

When you have been notified that the shipment has been cleared by CFIA, you will have to arrange for a dry shipper to be sent to Dr. Plante.  We recommend that FedEx be used and these costs are paid by the member.  You can also arrange to personally take a dry shipper to Dr. Plante.  The club has two dry shippers and these may be rented at $50 for up to two weeks use, this does not include any courier costs for transportation or charging the dry shipper.  If you would like to rent a dry shipper contact Michael Boyd (cell 416 540-7183, email: mmboyd@rogers.com).  Once the shipment has been cleared and you have been notified we ask that you pick-up or arrange to have your order shipped within 30 days.

Send your order form and cheque, bank draft or money order payable to the Canadian Hanoverian Society for the total amount.  If paying by VISA or Mastercard please fill in the card number and expiry date on the order form and you can scan the order form and email it to Greta.

If you have any questions regarding the shipment or would like to discuss stallion selection contact Greta Haupt at (905) 865-2529 (email:  haupt.greta@gmail.com).  We wish all our members the best of luck in the upcoming breeding season.
