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, 2023.    


A price list of for the Celle stallions available to us as frozen semen is now available on the CHS Website.  ( This price list is posted under the “Ordering Frozen” heading on the website, and is in Canadian dollars, with all payments due in Canadian dollars.


 Members of the Canadian Hanoverian Society, the American Hanoverian Society and the Canadian Warmblood Breeders Association receive a 20% discount from our list price. Prior to January 27th the price list shown on the CHS website will include the complete list of stallions available for Export from Celle, as well as their prices in Canadian dollars. After January 27, 2023 orders will only be filled from an inventory of selected stallions that the CHS has on hand, and therefore after January 27th, the price list will be updated to show only those stallions available in our club inventory. When ordering, also keep in mind that our annual shipment from Germany typically arrives to Canada in late March/early April; if you need your doses prior to this you will also need to order only from our inventory.  Please note the price list for doses in club inventory is subject to change, as doses kept in inventory are still the property of the Landgestut and our prices in Canadian dollars are updated based on changes to their pricing.

All FedEx and Purolator costs associated with shipping  your dry shipper to  and from Dr. Plante’s Facility are covered by you as the buyer of the doses. If you know of someone else in your area purchasing doses with us, please note this on your order form so we can ship them together, or if we see other orders coming from a similar location we will contact you to see if the doses could be shipped  together in an effort to assist with lowering the shipping cost for you
