About Us



Used Semen Tanks
You can find some great deals here.  
We do test tanks before listing them 
 so buy with confidence. 
We do not have any used tanks on hand that are not listed on this page.
Good used tanks are few and far between so you will only see a few tanks
 a year listed on this page. You should also notice that the posted date and
the sale date are listed so you know how long a used tank has been online
and when it sold.

Why are the SOLD tanks still listed?
The sold tanks are here to give you an idea of what a used tank should cost.
Keep in mind when comparing to others that our tanks are
filled and tested before being shipped.

20 Liter Freeze Branding Tank

This is one of the best freeze branding tanks I have received in a while. It will hold for about a month and the mouth is big enough to allow a branding iron to fit into it without pouring into another container. In the picture the brand is a 3.5" number that has plenty of room to go down the neck. No canisters, not for storing semen.

$250 plus shipping SOLD

HC18 Freeze Branding Tank

This tank will hold for about 4 weeks so it is perfect for freeze branding. No canisters and is not being sold to store semen. Check the photos because the cork is a replacement that is bigger than the original. Because of this the lid will not close all the way.

$180 shipping included SOLD

NEW! XC20 with 6 canisters and full 5 year warranty.

This is a new tank that was ordered by a customer last week and never picked up. It is still in the original box and has the full factory warranty, all 6 canisters, and a measuring stick. It's sitting in my office taking up space so it has to go.

MVE SC8/5 with 5 canisters
Please read this carefully as this is a specialty tank.

This tank has 5" canisters rather than the regular 11" canisters that come in an XC20 (and other) tanks that we sell.  It will hold 8 liters for 5 weeks and it originally had 6 canisters with a capacity of 1122 straws on one level (
not 11" 2 level canes!). With 5 canisters it will hold 935 straws.

Neck opening  2.18"
Overall height  18.5"
Outside diameter 10.2"
Canister height 
Canister diameter 1.65"
Weight empty 12 lbs
Weight full  27 lbs

This is my personal tank that I use to carry semen to other locations because it is small and easy to handle. If you need to carry a couple straws or a few hundred of only a few bulls this is the perfect working tank. It allows me to carry a lighter tank into the field rather than my larger bulk tanks for breeding. This tank was purchased April 2005 and has factory warranty until April 2010. Add shipping to the price. (New Retail $912)

New Vapor shipper for semen transport.
We no longer carry this line of tanks and this is the last one in stock. It comes with a box designed for shipping the tank in so there is no need to buy an expensive protective cover. I have used these in the past with good results but I do not recommend them for daily use.
The IC 4VS is the perfect lost cost shipper if it is used occasionally (twice per month or less).
Brand New in box with 2 year factory warranty.  120 straw capacity 3 week hold time.

  I may have an older 16 liter tank coming in the next few weeks (January 06). It will hold about 400 straws. Hold time is about 2 months. I am currently testing it but I filled this tank for years and am confident it will be OK. It is an old Linde brand tank is is not pretty but it does work. It would make a good freeze branding tank but it held semen for years before being traded in for a bigger one.


16 Liter Linde $250 to be listed soon  SOLD!

This tank is only 1 year old and has a 4 year vacuum warranty from the factory. It is currently filled with liquid nitrogen and has semen stored in it. Please allow 3 days for shipping as the semen has to be transferred to the new, bigger tank our customer has ordered. We rarely get in a tank in a tank this new so don't delay in calling because it may not be around long!
