Vastrap Boran Semen For Sale

Factors to consider when using semen to artificially inseminate (AI) cows:
1. You need a semen canister filled with liquid nitrogen to store and transport semen in. Semen must stay frozen at all times otherwise it dies!!! The size of the flask determines how expensive it is and how long you can store semen before the flask runs dry and needs to be topped up with liquid nitrogen. We recommend a flask that can hold about 3-month’s supply of liquid nitrogen (GP-20) and this size of flask costs about R15’000. Ideally the flask should be checked once a week and filled once a month. If you live somewhere that is not near a supply of liquid nitrogen then you should not consider buying semen!!
2. If you are not trained to do AI yourself, then you need to make sure that there is a vet or someone trained to do AI in your district that can help you. A vet is the most obvious choice, but they are also expensive. You can try someone at a dairy since they do a lot of AI.
3. If you are okay with all of the above then you can buy semen. One uses semen rather than a bull because semen from the very best bulls are cheaper than buying the whole bull. However, a bull is much more effective and much less work than AI. AI is used to complement your bull and never to take the place of a bull. In many instances it is more cost effective to buy a bull to cover your cows rather than semen.

  3. I AM IN NAMIBIA AND IS INTERESTED IN BORAN BULLS BETWEEN THE AGES OF 18 TO 24 MONTHS OR SEMEN. CAN YOU PLEASE HELP ME??

    • Hi Zeanthye. I only sell 3 year old bulls. They have all been through a 6 months veldt performance test, been inspected by the Boran Society, been graded by a panel of 4 established Boran breeders and have a vetinary certificate for fertility and free of any diseases. I have two groups that sell for R35’000 and R25’000 respectively. Semen has to be transported in a nitrogen flask and pass all the Namibia import protocols. You will need a flask which you need to deliver to an exporting intermediary. They will charge a fee for clearing the semen and courier your flask with the semen to you. Let me know what you would like to do. I have one of the best bulls in the country. His name is Chico MHB 03-06. I sell his semen for R250 per straw.

  4. Good Afternoon.

    How does your semen procedure work?
    I’m in Eastern Cape, do you have any branch around Ngcobo, Eastern Cape near Umtata?

    • Hi Dlabane,
      Thank you very much for your enquiry about semen. Most of our semen straws are kept here on our farm in the Eastern Free State near Ladybrand. Some of our quarantine tapped semen is kept at Embryo Plus in Brits.
      The only way to get it is if you come and collect with a liquid nitrogen flask to keep the straws frozen.
      Please let us know if you have any further questions.

    • Hi Oscar,
      Thank you for your enquiry. Which country are you based? If it’s not South Africa, then the first thing to know is that we can only export semen to other African countries. At present there are no export protocols with countries outside of Africa.
      The second thing is that the transport of semen straws requires you to have a liquid nitrogen flask to keep the semen frozen at all times.
      Then finally, you need a vet or someone qualified to be able to do artificial insemination on your cows when you use the semen.
      Please let us know if you have more specific questions we can help with.
      Regards,
      Quentin
