The Czech Republic

The Czech Republic, and especially its capital city Prague with over 5.5 million tourists per year, offers immediate opportunities for consumer-oriented food items as well as ingredients and longer-term prospects for other products. Agricultural imports reached value of nearly USD 10.3 billion in 2016, out of which USD 54.3 million was from the United States.

FAS Prague assists with export of equine semen
The Foreign Agricultural Service at the U.S. Embassy in the Czech Republic assists with the special shipment of export-ready frozen equine semen addressed to the Czech Quarter Horse Association. 66,000 dollars’ worth of the precious contents has been funded by the USDA grant through the federal Quality Samples Program. The beneficiary is an international affiliate of the American Quarter Horse Association, based in Amarillo, Texas. Taking advantage of the state-of-the-art reproduction technique is for the benefit of both the Czech gene pool as well as worldwide breeding of this unique horse. The semen from the famous “The Four Sixes” ranch, standing some of the world’s finest American Quarter Horse stallions, will be distributed to Czech breeders under strict selection criteria. About 20 foals are expected to be born in spring 2020.
