Covid 19

We thought it would be helpful to let you know, what precautions UK Sire Services Limited are implementing, to cope with the current unprecedented times in respect of Covid 19.


Firstly, we are trying to look after our staff as best as possible; some will be working from home and we are likely to move to a two-shift team, so that we can ensure the business continues to operate. Our responsibilities extend to our loyal team of contractors collecting semen on farm across the country.


The key precedents will be Health & Welfare and Animal Welfare and these will not be compromised.


In respect of deliveries, it is uncertain what future measures the Government might implement, so please order now, but be patient and we will do our best to satisfy your orders.


In terms of delivery, there will need to be much greater liaison to ensure that the semen can be delivered, but in a safe way for all parties. Keeping physical contact to a minimum must be a priority.


If you have any questions, or concerns on our approach, please do not hesitate to raise them and we will do our very best to address them immediately.


We sincerely hope that this situation passes quickly, and all our lives can return to normal.


We trust this letter finds you safe and well and thank you for your continued business.
