On Farm Testing
All rams/bucks must be negative from a CFIA Lab for the following diseases within 60 days of entering the collection facility
Rams/bucks must remain in isolation and have the above blood tests repeated at 30 days, along with intradermal TB testing. Semen collection can begin after all 30 day tests are negative. Some countries have specific testing requirements for export and require a longer quarantine period.
Please read the OC FLOCK Semen Collection 2016 document carefully. New regulations have changed the way in which we must manage entry into our facility so early planning and reservation of space is important to insure optimal collection of your animals. Please contact OC Flock Management for more information on collection of your rams or bucks
Testing and quarantine requirements during the collection period vary significantly with the country of destination.
