CANADIAN BREEDERS - Because of new CEM
regulations for shipping into Canada you must obtain a permit to
receive shipments. To find out more about what this entails
please read this
shipments we have done have gone well and without any real hitches,
unfortunately it is a bit more expensive to ship, fees are detailed
below. We are only charging you actual costs to process the
paperwork, we are not charging for time or office fees.
Permits obtained from CFIA are $35 for one
time shipment and $60 for multiple shipments (recommended) You should
also choose multiple ports of entry for your permit. You will
also need stallions registration information & numbers which
can be found on our registration
We can not ship Friday to Saturday because the state vet is not open on
the weekends to complete the permits.

ll of our stallions stand with a
LFG and are EVA and CEM negative. At Silverwood
Farm we strive to make your breeding experience as pleasant as possible
and provide one of the most affordable and convenient collection
schedules in the industry. All of our stallions ship very well and we are
collecting at cost; we do not make money on our shipping or
collections. Below is information on our fees, ordering, etc. If you
have further questions please contact us we will be happy to help.
Shipment orders must
be received no later than

We do about 99% of our
shipments in box syringe containers and have had excellent results with
this method for the past 10 years. The boxes we use are
Equine Express II containers.
We do not ship
or collect on Saturdays, Sundays or Holidays and
on some very rare weekdays if we have to leave for a long show or if we
are out of town. We do ship 5 days a week including
Fridays-the shipments are good throughout the weekend, so do try to
foresee if you’ll need a weekend shipment and check Below:
