Ordering semen from Deerpark
« on: May 09, 2012, 12:18:05 pm »
Did anyone else know, as I discovered this morning at 10.30 am, that on WEDNESDAYs only, Deerpark's last post leaves their place aat 10.00 am, and if you miss this deadline, then you will have to wait to Thursday to order.    Which might well be a problem for us with this particular sow/heat we wanted AI for.    So be warned, if you think your pig might need AI on a Thursday, either order it on Tuesday sometime, or very very early indeed on Wednesday morning  -  Tamsaddle

My other half tells me that this is because this is Deerpark's local post office early closing day!
