Open letter to ABS clients

23rd March 2020

Dear clients,

COVID-19 Update

  • Semen supply unhindered
  • On-farm visits by ABS Australia stopped
  • Phone and email support available

At ABS Australia there is nothing more important than the health of our clients and staff.

In these unprecedented times, the importance of agriculture and farming is emphasized. The population still needs to be fed so it’s vital that the agricultural supply chain remains supported and unobstructed.

That’s why it was an easy decision for me to cut all on-farm staff visits as everyone in Australia must do their part to help prevent the spread of this virus.

This is something ABS Australia can do without decreasing the support to clients. Breeding is a long-term business and we are here to help you. All our staff will

continue to work and are available via phone and email.

Today, we received confirmation from the USA that the ABS semen supply would continue. This means Australian farmers will still be able to have semen from the sires they want, when they need it. Please feel free to contact any of our staff if you would like to discuss this or if there is anything we can do to assist you.

These are unparalleled times and the situation continues to develop. ABS is committed to keeping our clients informed.

Kind regards

Marcus Rees

GM ABS Australia


The team in the US production facility are still working hard to continue the ABS supply chain.
