SEMEN ORDERS & SHIPMENTS
Do not place orders on FaceBook, email, answering machine or fax. YOU MUST Call 903-564-7686 and talk to a person. Availability of semen on any given day is not guaranteed. One dose of semen will be sent in each shipment. The priority for semen will be as follows: Ranch mares Transit mares Shipped semen mares. Of the shipped semen mares, all mares that are not foal heat mares will have priority over foal heat mares. The stallion manager will prioritize all mares. IMPORTANT - Requests for shipped cooled semen must be made by 5:00pm Central time the day before collection. Any late orders will be charged a $50 late fee if filled. Confirmation/Cancellation of a semen order must be made by 8am Central time the day of collection. Late cancellations will incur a $50 cancellation fee. Use an experienced competent mare management facility. Mares should be on a regular teasing and palpation/ultrasound examination schedule. We request that you palpate mares to determine if they have ovulated in a timely manner or if you need more semen. Confirmation of pregnancy by ultrasound starting at 14 days post ovulation following thru to 45 days of pregnancy is required to maintain the live foal guarantee. Failure to provide pregnancy status will result in mare not being included on the breeding report. Embryo transfer: If more that one embryo is produced and transferred, Cedar Ridge must be notified within 48 hours of the embryo transfers. A stallion service fee (including chute fee) is due for each pregnancy. Please contact the ranch if you have any questions or special needs as we strive to provide the best service possible.
