All frozen semen stored for future use must be registered with the Registrar of Animal Improvement. The following information concerning the specific animal from which the semen was collected must accompany applications: an extended pedigree, DNA profile, and confirmation of parentage by SABBS. If the semen were collected and not DNA tested prior to SABBS becoming operational, it must be tested for the offspring to be registered.
The Registrar uses the form Application to Export/Import for the registration of frozen semen as well. Contact the Head Office for assistance with registration applications and currency conversion of the fee charged by the Registrar (ZAR 620).
