Helgstrand Doses, 2021

There is a lot of talk going around about the Helgstrand doses, inspired in large part by another semen broker calling the doses "half doses" as compared to doses of past years. This is absolutely, categorically UNTRUE.
The doses collected in 2021 are full doses according to WBFSH standards and contain ample motile sperm per dose after thawing even if packaged in fewer straws.
For the record, here is the data for the Helgstrand 2021 collections:
Jovian, 3 straws, 279.6/311.4 million sperm per ml, 60% motility
Fynch Hatton, 3 straws, 301 million sperm per ml, 60% motility
So Perfect, 3 straws, 320.5 million sperm per ml, 55% motility
Total McLaren, 3 straws, 325.7 million sperm per ml, 65% motility
Iron, 4 straws, 305.4 million sperm per ml, 50% motility
Springbank II, 3 straws, 304.1 million sperm per ml, 65% motility
Revolution, 2 straws, 327.7 million sperm per ml, 65% motility

How we work:

Superior Equine Sires is the only North American frozen semen brokerage that conducts "open" orders to the countries we import from. That means you can order from our full roster of stallions from each of those countries during a specified time.

After our orders are closed, we maintain a comprehensive list of frozen semen in stock.

We currently do open orders from Germany, Denmark, France, Belgium, Netherlands, Sweden and Portugal. An option we offer is to ship your privately purchased semen with one of our planned shipments.

We offer custom shipments from many other European countries and have imported from Spain, the Czech Republic, Austria and the United Kingdom.  

We do several shipments to Canada each season. Semen produced in Brazil, Portugal and Spain is not allowed into Canada.

Superior Equine Sires proudly supports North American breeding registries by donating frozen semen to annual service auctions.
