The quality chain for semen and embryos from the producer to the end user farmer has now been strengthened considerably with the introduction of the Semen & Embryo Handlers Accreditation Program and Code of Practice.
This Program and Code of Practice has been developed with funding from the Dairy Herd Improvement Fund together with supplemental funding being provided by the Dairy Research and Development Corporation and the National Herd Improvement Association of Australia.
This new Program and Code of Practice complements the previously introduced Professional AI Technicians Accreditation Program by seeking to establish the adoption of standard considered minimum requirements for organisations and staff handling semen and embryos during the distribution process.
The Code was developed in response to demands from industry and is designed to be applicable to identified key handling processes for semen and embryos from the time the product has been produced until it is despatched for final use.
In the current deregulated environment the Code will encourage customers' confidence in the integrity of semen and embryos supplied by accredited organisations.
The Program and Code of Practice is being offered to industry on a regional basis.
