TLG offers licensed semen collection for domestic and international markets, including export accreditation and storage for many global destinations.
Due to both the location and design of the facilities, TLG’s Camperdown Collection Centre is the only semen collection centre in Australia licensed to collect for the European Union, United Kingdom and USA CSS requirements. There is a separate licensed semen collection centre at TLG’s Glenormiston Centre, which caters for animals which need not meet the strict criteria for our Camperdown Collection Centre. This second centre allows us to offer a cost competitive program for animals on collection for other international and domestic markets.
TLG offers the ideal environment, as sires are exposed to a relatively consistent temperature throughout the year ensuring semen collection is not affected by extremes of heat or cold. Sires are housed individually according to collection programs and health status and are regularly weighed during their semen collection program. They are acclimatised to a safe and high energy ration. You can follow progress in production securely via our password protected internet-based inventory access.

With a focus on Quality Assurance, TLG is registered with Certified Semen Services (CSS) », and as such is the only centre outside North America which can use the CSS logo, attesting to the world’s best practice conducted by the organisation. To maintain this voluntary accreditation TLG is audited annually by CSS for its compliance with all aspects of bovine semen collection.
Prior to release, straws from each collection are post-thawed and examined to ensure the quality of the product is achieved so that our clients can rest assured in the success of their AI programs. TLG can provide semen quality reports for motility and abnormality counts on every semen batch collected at our centres.
When your animal is collected, he is subjected to the most up-to-date technology in semen media, handling and processing, in export approved laboratories by highly qualified personnel. Clients can expect laser printed and ultrasonically sealed straws, and the latest in computerised freezing equipment. All semen is collected, packed, assessed, inventoried and available for despatch within 48 hours.
