​Semen rights 

Animals offered for sale that are nominated to retain a semen interest in, are sold with the following conditions;

  • Each animal sold is the physical property of the purchaser. The purchaser is entitled to collect semen for use in their own herd only at any time. The purchaser is entitled to 100% of the salvage value of the bull.
  • Delta wagyu retains the right to access the nominated bulls at a future date for the purpose of semen production with the semen to be used within the Delta wagyu program. Semen will be collected at the expense of Delta wagyu and at a negotiated time and place convenient to the new owner.
  • Nominated bulls are sold with Delta wagyu retaining exclusive semen marketing control, and a percentage of all semen royalties as nominated on the individual lot.
  • If a bull is re-sold by a purchaser, delta wagyu retained interests persist with the new owner.
  • Delta wagyu retains exclusive cloning rights on all animals sold. No animal may be cloned without written consent from Delta wagyu.

Retaining semen interests in sale bulls enables Delta wagyu to offer access to our best bulls and enables the bull owner to jointly share in any future success in marketing semen.

Retaining a semen interest provides Delta Wagyu with the option to collect semen for our own use, but also to control the potential marketing of semen to the best effect through our network of contacts.

Delta Wagyu puts great effort, resources and intellect in developing each bulls genetics, therefore it is reasonable to participate in their future success in the form of semen sales and use in our own program so we can ensure we continue our program’s genetic progress.

With these points understood by our customers, we can offer for sale every bull we produce, and hold nothing back.
