The ApHC has successfully completed the first international shipment of frozen semen under our international marketing plan. The breedings were donated by ApHC stallion owners whose stallions and collection services met USDA export guidelines and Australia’s import protocols. A total of 24 breedings from two ApHC regular-registered, champion stallions should have arrived in Australia yesterday, Sept. 1st. The breedings will be part of a stallion service auction managed by the Australian Appaloosa Association (AAA). Proceeds of the U.S. donated stallions will go to start a futurity for dual-registered appaloosas in Australia.
U.S. Livestock Genetics Export, Inc. (USLGE) funded the documentation fees and shipping and AAA will fund the clearance fees, storage. Insemination fees will be the responsibility of the mare owners and AAA.
This is the first shipment of genetic materials under the Market Access Program (MAP) branded program funded by USLGE.
