But for those who like hard facts and numbers, here you go -
Standard Next Day Delivery via FedEx - $315

Proper packaging with detailed thawing, insemination protocols and documentation of motility
Semen is guaranteed free of pathogens and above the post thaw minimum 30% progressively motile morphologically normal (healthy) sperm
Each shipment is verified/double checked by 2 SBS technicians prior to going on the truck. The right stallion, the correct number of straws for that stallion, for that client...everything is double checked from top to bottom.
Now we have also used SBS over the years for the collection and storage of our own stallions. For the semen that is stored with SBS - each tank is checked weekly to be sure that proper nitrogen levels are maintained. Think of it as having your stallion (living or deceased) being kept in the prime of his fertility under the best care imaginable. Should anything happen to the actual stallion - not to worry - the semen is safe! We own a vapor shipper that is checked each year to be sure that it is in good working order (no leaks or damage). We have heard horror stories of deceased stallions remaining semen being missed by a scheduled delivery - either at home or at a "facility"...and that results in the complete loss of all the semen. Our imported frozen semen was taxed and paid for in it's entirety upon arrival in the United States. Each month we pay for the storage and maintenance of the existing inventory. The level of sanitation, standard of quality and meticulous protocols for safety, superlative care and technical expertise are unmatched in our experience. We have had a higher rate of success with frozen semen using SBS, their protocols and methods than any other. I'll stop now - it's been a long day (albeit good with super rides).
But don't take our word for it! If you personally have any questions about SBS, their fees, storage policies, semen quality - PLEASE get in touch with them personally. Email is email@example.com or you can contact them via phone, fax or mail -
