ArdCeltic Art - A very limited supply of Frozen Semen will be offered through Select Breeders Services (SBS) Private Treaty plus SBS processing and shipping fees (~$350.00)
Each frozen dose contains 800 million sperm with approximately 500 million Progressively Motile Sperm with Post Thaw Motility of 71 - 88 percent
Industry standard definition of a “dose” of frozen semen is a single insemination unit which includes a minimum of 300 to 500 million progressively motile sperm, which, upon PROPER thawing show at least a 30% post thaw motility.
Direct Quote from Jose Madera of Peterson and Smith regarding Art's semen "His semen can indeed be exported to Australia. You can expect the following post-thaw motility parameters : Total motility: 71-88%, progressive motility: 55%-69%, with great velocities. All of our post thaw analysis are done with the aid of a Computer Assisted Sperm Analysis system. Each dose will consist of 8 straws of .5ml size with at least 800 million total cells per dose. The exact parameters of the specific ejaculate you will be getting will depend on how much semen is being exported (if we have to take it from several ejaculates or not). His semenal parameters are excellent for frozen semen so I would expect good results."
