How long can the frozen semen be conserved?

Hello :)

Frozen semen allows owners to conserve the semen in an unlimited way, you can use the semen 1 year or 50 years later, and it will still be efficient. In order to be well conserved, it has to be preserved in nitrogen liquid at -180°C.

Hi Stanley,

We can still find semen from horses who died 10 years ago so I think it can at least last several decades!
