Try a Porcine artificial insemination site in the UK or an agricultural stock  vet  . I  Know of one vet who obtained St Bernard semen from abroad , frozen in liquid nitrogen .
 Evidently getting the bitch I .A'd  was horrifically funny for she seemed more interested in eating cheese biscuits apparently than what the vet was doing .

You may find one who may have import licences as these are USA  stock , couldn't find out any UK growers.
Strong belief , triggers the mind to find the way ... Dyslexia just makes it that bit more amusing & interesting

ha ha, i just mean fresh pig semen comes in bottles rather than straws so it might affect your internet searches lol.   i couldnt see any at deerpark but if there is a demand... who knows. give them a ring.
