The Benefits of Using Shipmate for Dog Breeding
by Phenyx Media on Feb 15, 2023
Breeding dogs requires a lot of work and a key component of successful breeding is the ability to ship chilled semen in a reliable and consistent manner.
Traditional methods of shipping chilled semen are unreliable and inconsistent, often leading to poor-quality semen and a loss of resources.
Benefits of Using Shipmate:
- Shipmate from My Breeder Supply provides breeders with a controlled cooling rate and final temperature for the semen, resulting in a consistent and reliable way to ship chilled semen.
- The double-walled stainless steel flask surrounded by ice packs inside an insulated foam shipping box ensures a controlled cooling rate and final temperature.
- Shipmate is an automated process that requires no setup from the breeder, and the microprocessor, temperature sensor, heater, and memory control the cooling rate and final temperature of the specimen.
- The rate of cooling is set at 0.5°C per minute until the sample reaches 18°C and then it is cooled very slowly at a rate of 1°C every 20 minutes to exactly 5°C, to prevent cold shock. The sample is then held at 5°C, the optimum temperature.
Reliability and Consistency:
- Using Shipmate eliminates the guesswork involved in traditional shipping methods and ensures that the semen is cooled to the correct temperature for optimum results.
- This results in a reliable and consistent way to ship chilled semen, making the breeding process easier and more successful.
Shipping chilled semen with Shipmate from My Breeder Supply is the best way to ensure a successful breeding program and a happy, healthy pup.
It provides breeders with a reliable, consistent, and safe way to ship chilled semen, resulting in better outcomes for the breeding process.
