Scawfell Genetics new semen store now open
Scawfell Genetics Ltd are happy to announce that the long-awaited fully licensed semen storage facility for both domestic and export qualified semen is now open for business at our bespoke British genetics facility in Cumbria.
Managing Director James Hazard commented, “we are so pleased that we have been able to get this project off the ground. All directors as customers have been involved in cattle genetics for many years and it is great that other breeders will for the first time have another option of who to use to look after their genetic straws. Our modern, efficient and cost effective facility will provide customers with a high level of service which is required in the modern era.”
Scawfell Genetics Ltd have established a custom built facility alongside its long established bull stud in Cumbria. This facility allows a complete solution to be provided to all breeders including on farm and on stud collection, semen processing through the most modern lab in the UK, semen storage in a unique facility that provides breeders with complete transparency of inventory.
Director John Black commented, “being breeders ourselves we have built a facility that is aimed at providing fellow breeders choice alongside complete security. Our main aim has been to provide a superior service to cattle breeders and we have invested heavily in the most up to date equipment from across the world to provide a simple, user friendly and cost effective facility. Assisting our breeders showcase the quality of British genetics to the rest of the world.”
Scawfell Genetics Ltd store is the first in the country that provides a completely automated straw counting system and a portal that allows breeders to see at any time what inventory they have in stock.
Pete Sherwen, Operations Director comments, “the technology we have developed to give our breeders transparency is a huge leap forward for the industry. This coupled with our advances in distribution is extremely exciting, we are delivering straws to the breeders door guaranteed within 72 hours from the day of ordering.
We are also taking care of the delivery tank returns all within a price with no hidden extra charges for less than any other distributor in the UK. For too long breeders have had to accept long delivery times, excessive charges as they have had no where else to go. Our facility provides choice which in my experience always leads to a better deal for the customer.”
