Dear Mare Owner,
Thank you for your interest in our stallions that stand at Schimke Ranch. Enclosed is a shipped semen breeding contract for the stallion that you have requested. Please take the time to read through this letter & contract so you are familiar with our procedures & fees.
To reserve a breeding, the following items must be sent to Schimke Ranch:
2. A copy of your mare’s registration papers.
Breeding with cooled, shipped semen is very successful, however it requires intensive mare management, with perfect timing--either by a veterinarian, or a breeding farm experienced with ultrasounding mares & cooled semen insemination protocols.
The following fees must be paid in full before we can send any shipments:
2. Collection fee of $300 when applicable (re-breeds or stallion service auction collection/freight fees).
Please note that shipping containers must be returned to us within 5 days, or you will be billed for the value of the shipping container.
Schimke Ranch operates on a routine collection/shipping schedule that your veterinarian will need to know. This schedule WILL NOT be altered for any reason. Collection days from February 15-June 30th will be EVERY MONDAY-WEDNESDAY-FRIDAY including holidays.
Semen orders need to be made, by the veterinarian only, the night before the shipment will need to be sent, by 7PM Central Time. Please call to confirm or cancel the shipment before 9AM Central Time on collection days. Orders placed after 9AM Central on collection days run a lower chance of semen availability. We cannot guarantee a shipment on orders placed after 9AM on collection/ship days.
Semen shipments will be prioritized based on the mare’s reproductive status according to the veterinarian placing the semen order.Thanks again for your interest and we are looking forward to a successful breeding season! If you have any questions give us a call at (605) 539-0272.
