So I have been asked by a couple of people about semen from Ruben. I do not have any collected as of now, however I think I will be collecting him this year.
I am interested in two things.
1. Who would like some?
2. Would you use it this fall or defer use until another year?
I ask this to see how much interest there is in him, and if I should collect before this breeding season, or do it afterwards to obtain the very best quality semen.
As far as price goes, I have given this a lot of thought and decided that in today's market few are looking to add does to their programs. They are instead looking for bucks and maybe a doe or two for the program. Therefore price should be set accordingly so as to be profitable to the buyers. So I will set the price at $500 per straw
. I will also have a buy 4 get 1 free
offer. These prices will stand until I am either sold out of all but 20 straws of what I get from the collection, or until June 1st 2016
I want to ensure I have at least 20 straws for my own farm should he die before giving me another collection.
Then in late summer of 2016 I will determine price again based on the look and score AND the current markets at that time.
Last year Ruben was 4 buck to 1 doe fawn
. And this year he was 8 bucks to 1 doe fawn
. All of course from live breedings. I prefer emails with any questions or purchases regarding this offer. Email to: Roger_Pietrowski@yahoo.com
Thank you all for looking!
