If you would like the bull to have semen collected at the stud, and therefore qualify for export, we will ask you to get your vet to test the bull for IBR. Bulls with a positive result, including vaccinates, cannot come to an EU Licensed Bull Stud.
If the bull tests negative, you will need to contact Liz immediately (Tel. 01803 863560) and we will fill out the application forms on your behalf and send them to Animal Health/Defra. You will also need to complete and return your Contract for semen collection, which will include a list of countries that you want semen qualified for (feel free to ask for advice).
If, by your choice or the bull is an IBR marker vaccinate or has failed the IBR test, the bull can be collected on farm. Semen will not be eligible for export outside Great Britain.
