About Reproduction En
Reproduction Enterprises, Inc. (REI) was incorporated in 1978 as a custom semen collection facility. In 1980 a complete embryo transfer facility was added. In 1999 we expanded the business via a number of services. REI currently offers semen collection, storage, artificial insemination, semen sales, embryo transfer and other associated services throughout the United States as well as internationally. REI has been a member of NAAB for several decades as well as maintaining a satisfactory CSS certification.
Although the majority of the products and services are with bovine, a number of these services are available for small ruminants (sheep, goats, white-tail deer). REI also provides various training workshops for several of the above species. REI has maintained a reputable semen quality control program and is becoming one of the nation’s most efficient semen shipping and distribution centers in the southern part of the United States.
