Sooooooo
We ordered some sexed semen from them in late January. We were informed it might not be available fair enough. We were asked to supply a substitute which we did. So last week we were informed that the original bull was not available and oh by the way neither is your substitute because we sold it to somebody else.

Suggestions on how I should approach the situation please.

Tell them your business is going else where, other firms offer similar Breeding lines.

When you start serving? I Had a funny call last week asking when I needed it, said mid April so I could get it tested before service. He said may have trouble getting by then but would try his best. 🤔

Exactly we would be 20 yrs using their semen. It’s no accident we have the milk solids and percentages we do. I would be loathed not to use them in the future. It was bought via an agent. Though i personally received a confirmation text from them. And have subsequently seen the confirmation emails sent to my agent.
