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 23, 2021.    

Members of the Canadian Hanoverian Society, the American Hanoverian Society and the Canadian Warmblood Breeders Association receive a 15% discount from list price.  After January 23, 2021 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, 2020.  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.        

The list on the Celle website is currently dated October 28, 2020.  We will monitor this list for any updates before the end of 2020 and adjust our price list accordingly to match any changes that may be made by Celle. Please wait at least until after mid-December to place your order with us, in case Celle makes changes to their pricing in the meantime.

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 23, 2021 for orders from the Celle list. 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, or if you would like us to contact you for credit card information please write this on the order form and we will call you for this information. Payment can also be accepted by etransfer of funds to MarjorieHaus.chs@gmail.com

 The order will then be placed with Celle, we arrange an Import Permit with CFIA for the shipment, and dry shippers are sent to the State Stud.  The shipment should arrive and, once cleared by CFIA, be available by late March or early April. Once you have been notified that the shipment has been cleared, we ask that you pick-up or arrange to have your order shipped within 30 days.    

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/handling charge per dose, as seen on the order form, 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 $75.00.

Please note that all orders must include the Importation/shipping/handling fee, including doses ordered from our inventory and those being picked up directly at Dr. Plante’s facility.  This fee is meant to help cover the following costs incurred by the club to offer this service to our members:  the cost to ship the container to and from Germany, insurance for the shipment in travel, as well on doses stored in inventory, the annual cost to store our inventory with Dr. Plante, fees charged by Dr. Plante to prepare and ship each order, etc.   

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 Marjorie Haus (r_mhaus@xplornet.com).  

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.
