SUPPLIERS

Whether you need top quality breeding stock to improve your future herd or commercial females to improve production, we will locate the animals you require. We can arrange inspection visits and we will accompany you, minimizing your effort and saving your valuable time.



HEALTH TESTING

Experienced veterinarians test the selected animals to meet the protocol requirements of the importing country including all the required health exams before transportation overseas. Our veterinarians have many years of experience insuring the health of animals being shipped. Every animal we ship is prepared for its voyage by being vaccinating against important diseases and establishing parasite control. No matter how difficult the health protocol, we can do it! The most important aspect of our job is ensuring that the livestock you buy from us arrive healthy, ready to work for you!



PURCHASE

Price is one of the most important factors to any buyer. The end price of animal genetics is affected by many factors. The most significant factor is that price is relative to the quality of the product you receive. However, when related to live animals, price is also relative to both the services provided throughout transport as well as the health of delivered animals.

We are active in the current market as we have our own working farm that sells animals on a regular basis. Our first-hand knowledge of economic trends in the livestock market, our strong relationships with breeders, and our reputation for honesty and reliability enable us to negotiate effectively for our clients.



ADMINISTRATION & DOCUMENTATION

Preparing the livestock for delivery to an overseas destination is a critical stage in the exportation process. We coordinate with producers, veterinarians and state health officials to insure the safe movement of animals into our quarantine centre. Experience has shown that good planning and coordination is essential to the success of this portion of the export process. At this point in the exportation process, precise and efficient documentation is essential.
