ORDERING FROZEN SEMEN FROM CELLE NATIONAL STATE STUD
Please read the following information carefully, as it should address most questions regarding ordering from our inventory. If you have any questions not addressed, please email Greta at email@example.com
The Canadian Hanoverian Society is the exclusive distributor in Canada for frozen semen available for export by the Celle National State Stud (Landgestüt Celle). After January 28, 2022 orders placed with the CHS can only be filled from an inventory of selected stallions that we have on hand. The list of stallions currently in our inventory is on the CHS website under “Ordering Frozen” tab. Please note that orders from inventory are filled on a first come first serve basis, and therefore the stallions available are subject to change as doses are sold. We will do our best to keep the list up to date, but ask that you send any inquiries regarding the availability of certain stallions to Greta Haupt at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Frozen semen from these stallions is typically packaged in a breeding dose 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 was shipped from Celle.
In order to place an order for semen, please complete the 2022 Order Form (Also found on the CHS Website under the “Ordering Frozen” tab) and send it to email@example.com. Members of either the CHS, AHS or CWHBA receive a 20% discount on their order, except where noted on certain stallions.
Full payment must reach the club prior to the doses being released to you. Payment can be in the form of cheque, bank draft or money order payable to the Canadian Hanoverian Society for the total amount, or by VISA/ Mastercard ( info can be filled in on the order form or we can contact you for credit card information by phone), or made by etransfer of funds to MarjorieHaus.firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that if you are in a rush to obtain the dose/s, credit card or etransfer are the fastest methods of payment. Also, if the dose/s need to be rushed, please also call Greta at 905-865-2529 to ensure the ordering process gets underway as quickly as possible. Once you have been notified that payment has been received, the doses are transferred into your name and we ask that you arrange to either pick-up or have your order shipped to you as soon as possible, or you may choose to continue to store them with Dr. Plante at your own cost. Also once transferred to your name the insurance coverage provided by the club will no longer apply.
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 handling/packing charge per dose, as seen on the order form, pays her handling charge when packing the dose, whether that be packing your order to ship to you or to transfer doses to your tank if picking up directly from Dr. Plante. Therefore all orders must include the handling/packing fee. When shipping or picking up the doses from Dr. Plante, she requires at least 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 directly to you. As well, if Dr. Plante has to charge a dry shipper for you, the cost is $75.00, also billed directly to you.
Shipping your order:
When you have been notified that your dose/s have been released to you, you will need to arrange for a dry shipper to be sent to Dr. Plante for transport of the doses. We recommend that FedEx or Purolator be used and the cost of sending the dry shipper to and from Dr. Plante is paid by you. You can also arrange to personally take a dry shipper to Dr. Plante if you are within travelling distance. If you send a dry shipper/pick up in your own dry shipper, Dr. Plante and/or her veterinary technicians reserve the right to not place any doses in a tank they do not deem safe for the transport of doses, only in an effort to ensure the safe arrival of your semen to you. Also, the club has two dry shippers that may be rented if needed, at a cost of $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 MarjorieHaus.email@example.com.
If you have any questions regarding the shipment please contact Greta Haupt at (905) 865-2529 (email: firstname.lastname@example.org). We wish all our members the best of luck in the upcoming breeding season.
