SEMENSTORE EXPORTS TO CZECH REPUBLIC

Further export order comprising of 6 Limousin bulls and 1 Simmental bull has been fulfilled by the online website www.semenstore.co.uk.

Semenstore, the e-commerce website, has completed an export of semen to the Czech Republic comprising of six Limousin bulls together with one Simmental bull.

Following an initial enquiry to Semenstore, visitors from the Czech Republic comprising of an AI company representative, a manager of a 2,000-head beef feedlot together with a commercial beef producer and Limousin pedigree breeder, toured over six UK farms and pedigree herds last August. Prospective purchasers Jan Machacek of Inplem and Agrofert’s Martina Tampierova paid particular attention to feet and legs as well as length and width in the tops.

Having looked at progeny of Semenstore sires, six bulls were selected to suit the various markets back in the Czech Republic, with the order being finalised in January 2014.

The Limousin bulls included in the order are Wilodge Cerberus (a second order to the Czech Republic), Plumtree Deus, Plumtree Fantastic, Haltcliffe Underwriter as well as two French-bred bulls Bolide and Vagabond. The Irish-bred Simmental bull, Clonagh Tiger Gallant, completed the picture.   

Commenting, Semenstore’s Livestock & Genetics Specialist Steve Jones said: “This is another good order for the UK pedigree sector. Europe and indeed worldwide are actively seeking to buy into the best of UK bovine genetics. Calving ease, growth, muscle and mobility are just some of the traits that they are looking for and Semenstore with its portfolio of bulls of all major beef breeds is a great place to start.”

This latest order to the Czech Republic follows hard on the heels of a shipment of semen from five Limousin bulls to Australia at the tail-end of 2013.

Steve Jones has also recently accompanied two further groups in organised tours who were looking to invest in British genetics: a fifty-strong party of Danish Limousin breeders attending Carlisle’s October 2013 Bull Sales; with the same month presenting the opportunity to engage with a high-level group of Austrian beef producers during and around the Stirling bull sales.  A party of fifty German Limousin breeders has already confirmed a trip for June of this year when they will combine herd visits with attendance at the Royal Highland Show at Ingliston, Edinburgh. 

Since its launch in 2009, Semenstore has exported to 5 continents and over 50 countries. See www.semenstore.co.uk for further information.
