Turkey: Change in Genetics Import Requirements

In January 2016, Turkey’s Ministry of Food Agriculture and Livestock (MinFAL) added new categories to their genetic requirements which broadened the variety of genetics which can be imported to Turkey such as sheep and goat embryos, semen of sport horses, sexed male semen and Holstein bull semen in the Top 100 list. The last mentioned new category allows bulls that are or were in the top 100 ranking list in their country at any time in the past 10 years to qualify without any technical requirement such as milk production.
