Silverwood Farm's Lab

ATTENTION CANADIAN BREEDERS - Because of new CEM regulations for shipping into Canada you must obtain a permit to receive shipments.  To find out more about what this entails please read this information. 

The shipments we have done have gone well and without any real hitches, unfortunately it is a bit more expensive to ship, fees are detailed below.  We are only charging you actual costs to process the paperwork, we are not charging for time or office fees. 

Permits obtained from CFIA are $35 for one time shipment and $60 for multiple shipments (recommended) You should also choose multiple ports of entry for your permit.  You will also need stallions registration information & numbers which can be found on our registration page.

We can not ship Friday to Saturday because the state vet is not open on the weekends to complete the permits.

If you have questions please call us we will be happy to help.

ll of our stallions stand with a LFG and are EVA and CEM negative.  At Silverwood Farm we strive to make your breeding experience as pleasant as possible and provide one of the most affordable and convenient collection schedules in the industry.   All of our stallions ship very well and we are collecting at cost; we do not make money on our shipping or collections. Below is information on our fees, ordering, etc. If you have further questions please contact us we will be happy to help.
Thank you. 

 


Shipping Info

Shipment orders must be received no later than
12:00 noon EST on day of shipment for over night delivery and no later than 10:00 am for airport shipments.

We do about 99% of our shipments in box syringe containers and have had excellent results with this method for the past 10 years.  The boxes we use are Equine Express II containers.

We do not ship or collect on Saturdays, Sundays or Holidays and on some very rare weekdays if we have to leave for a long show.  We do ship 5 days a week including Fridays-the shipments are good throughout the weekend, so do try to foresee if you’ll need a weekend shipment and check with our:
show schedule - calendar.

When you or your vet calls (540-822-9110) for a shipment  you will most likely get the answering machine. Please leave a detailed message about your order, include the following info: Name of breeder, name of mare, which stallion you need the shipment from, address to where we need to ship, and what day you need it shipped and arrived, such as; "We need a shipment from Art Deco, sent today, Monday to arrive Tuesday" and a phone number where we can contact someone if we have any questions about your shipment.

Your BREEDING CERTIFICATE comes in your first shipment of semen you and your vet will fill it out as you breed and preg check the mare --DO NOT SEND IT BACK WITH CONTAINER, you need to keep it throughout the breeding of the mare.

We really prefer NOT TO DO DEPOSITS any more (this makes for a book keeping nightmare) - The deposit is ONLY DUE if you elect not to use the "pay as you go" payment method, listed below, do not have a credit card on file with us, nor a Fed Ex account #.  If you use the pay as you go, or have a Fed Ex account number on file with us you will also save money.  The $200 container/shipping deposits are made payable to Silverwood Farm, or a credit card on file can be used    All shipping costs are deducted from this deposit. $25 is deducted for any containers returned dirty and $25 a day is charged for any container not returned within 10 days of receiving shipment.  Any refunds from the deposit are refunded at the end of breeding season, on or around October 1st, unless your breeding report has been turned in and you are waiting to following year to rebreed.  A $400 container deposit is required if you request an Equitanier and an additional $50 per shipment, Equitaniers must be returned via overnight shipping within 5 days of receiving shipment. DO NOT return containers using our FED EX account or bill to RECIPIENT, containers must be returned at breeders/mare owners expense.  If a container is returned on our account, there will be a $100 return fee plus shipping expenses due. 
Silverwood Farm can no longer ship to any clients who have not paid for their shipping and collections, so please keep your account current.
 

 

If you have any questions try our question and answer boxes below, but if your answer isn't there, please do not hesitate to give us a call we will try to help you any way that we can.  Also please check out our calendar page to see if there are any non-shipping dates or shows (please note the calendar may not be 100% accurate on for certain show dates since that is still in the process of being scheduled)

Please select a question:
Here is your answer:
OUR BREEDING SHED CLOSES SEPTEMBER 1ST.  We will try to accommodate later breeding, if it doses not interfere with end of the show season.
