Our STUD REGULATIONS 2024

I. GENERAL

By placing your semen order, you accept the stud regulations, payment conditions and the insemination contract; if you stable your mare with us, you also accept our terms and conditions with regard to insemination and stabling. Details of these are displayed in the mares’ stable. If you have your mare covered for the first time, you must provide a copy of the pedigree certificate and/or breeding permit form of your association at the time of breeding. A swab test is required before insemination can take place.

All published prices are net prices and exclusive of the respective country’s value-added tax which will be added to the total (in Germany currently 7%).

The breeding season starts on 15 February and ends on 1 September.

  • We are happy to present our studs to interested breeders. Please phone in advance to make an appointment.
  • Stalls with regular paddock access are provided for our visiting mares booked for insemination. Daily livery rates: for mares w/o foal: € 30.00, with foal: € 35.00.
  • If you are not using one of our own studs, we charge the following processing fee per heat € 150.00.
  • All prices are subject to additional tax.
  • Veterinarians’ costs are billed separately by the vet.

II. SEMEN SHIPMENTS AND USE OF SEMEN

In order to ensure optimal deliveries, please note the following:

  1. Semen orders for the following day can be placed on Monday to Friday between 8.00 and 10.00 am, and on Saturday between 7.30 and 9.00 am.
    For shipments abroad, please order Monday to Friday before 9.00 am.
    Please order by phone on +49 (0) 85 61 /14 00 or place your order online. If you order online, via email or fax, our office will call you back to confirm – only then does your order become valid. Please note: we do not ship on Sundays or public holidays. Nevertheless, collection in person is still possible on these days. Your order will then be available for collection between 1 and 5 pm.
  2. We usually ship a maximum of 3 portions of fresh semen per heat and provide you with semen for 3 heat cycles in a breeding season. This does not apply to frozen semen. Please contact our office for further information. Another exception applies to Vingino: for this stud we will send out only 2 portions for a maximum of 3 heat cycles.
  3. The first part of the stud fee is due in advance at the time of your first order. Additional shipments are only made once the due fees for that order have been received. Exceptions include offers where payments become due only in case of a live foal being born. In this case, the second part of the stud fee becomes due 48 hours after the birth of a live foal. If we have not received gestation/non-gestation confirmation within 8 weeks after the semen shipment, successful gestation is assumed and the additional gestation fee automatically becomes due and will be invoiced (this does not apply to live foal offers). After 15 September all remaining gestations fees will automatically become due and will be invoiced.
  4. With every semen delivery you receive a semen documentation form that must be filled out and returned to us as soon as possible (email or fax is fine).
  5. The broodmare holder must return the last semen documentation form to us before 15 September.
  6. You may only produce one foal per stud fee. If an additional mare is being inseminated, all relevant information must be submitted to us without delay and the stud fee for that mare will be invoiced. Where frozen semen is used, the mare owner agrees to return any unused portions (straws) of frozen semen to Bachl Insemination Station within 14 days after successful fertilisation has been confirmed, with any transport costs being covered by the mare owner.
  7. Veterinary confirmation of non-gestation must be provided as evidence and submitted no later than 30 September in the year of breeding. In case no such evidence is received, the provision becomes invalid and the gestation fee becomes due.
  8. Shipping costs vary according to destination and are charged to the person placing the order. Please call our office for more detailed information. For deliveries of frozen semen using one of our freezer boxes we charge a rental and liquid nitrogen fee.
  9. Please return the transport and freezer containers by mail within 3 days (postage and insurance paid by you). We reserve the right to organise the return of the freezer box after four days, if needed, at the expense of the mare holder. The customer is liable for the undamaged return transport of the freezer/shipping box.
  10. We are using an external freight company for the delivery of your order from Hengststation Bachl. Hengststation Bachl cannot be held liable for the timely and undamaged delivery of your order.
  11. If you are inseminating your mare with semen from your own horses we require the insemination certificate prior to the first insemination.

LIVE FOAL PAYMENT

This provision serves to support the breeders. The breeder must report the birth of the resulting foal and pay the stud fee within 48 hours. If the breeder fails to report their live-born foal to Hengststation Bachl, a fine of € 1,000 will be levied in addition to the due stud fee.
The first part of the stud fee, shipping costs and (for shipments abroad) fees incurred for an official veterinary certificate (TRACES) must be paid immediately after receipt of the invoice and before any semen is shipped.

EMBRYO TRANSFER, ICSI and other advanced reproductive techniques:
Special provisions apply. The use of our semen with these techniques may only take place after consultation with our office and requires a written agreement.

Sale of frozen semen portions: Please contact our office.

III. STUD FEE AND FURTHER REGULATIONS

  1. Invoices: Our prices and the stud fees published in our latest catalogue are exclusive of statutory VAT. All invoices are due no later than 10 days after the invoice date. This does not apply to stud fees that require advance payment. Where possible, invoices will be sent by email. Late payments incur a reminder fee and any collection charges that may occur in and out of court. You can only redeem one discount or voucher per stud fee. If an invoice that includes a discount is not paid on time, the discount becomes invalid.
  2. Shipments abroad always require advance payment of the complete stud fee, shipping costs and the certificate by the official veterinarian. Exceptions are live foal offers (in 2024: VIGARO, SANVARO and HAFFRUF). Here only the first part of the fee must be paid in advance. All bank charges must be paid by the mare holder. In case of an unsuccessful insemination, we can only provide you with a voucher for the second part of the stud fee if we receive the confirmation of non-gestation by 1 October of the respective breeding season.
  3. If a stallion is unavailable for certain reasons (e.g. competition, illness), frozen sperm can be used or an alternative stallion can be offered.
  4. To change an invoice or the breeding permit to a new breeder, we require a written declaration by both the old and the new breeder and will charge € 20.00 for the amendment. The stud fee remains the obligation of the broodmare holder/breeder placing the order.
  5. At the end of the breeding season and once all required documentation has been received and all costs have been settled, we will provide you with a breeding certificate so that you can notify your breeding association of the birth.
  6. Hengststation Bachl is unable to provide a guarantee for gestation.
  7. The following bank account should be used for all payments:

Bank name: UniCredit
IBAN: DE517432 0073 6610 1103 53
