Flatness International, Inc.,  an experienced company, is celebrating  its 37th Anniversary, in 2022. It is devoted to the International marketing of bull semen, and embryos.  Flatness International, Inc. was an NAAB Associate Member for 25 years and has been a member of the American Embryo Transfer Association.  It is a bull stud, NAAB Controller No 555, and has had housed cattle in several states.

Since Feb. 2007 our bulls received the 555 code, they will also keep (cross referenced) their previous codes, also, as that semen is still available. The young sires owned by Flatness International, Inc. are part of our Crown Jewel Collection, and have achieved NAAB "S" code stud-sampled status. No syndicates or partnerships.... to insure unbiased sampling.  0f the bulls proven so far, 90% were plus proven upon graduation (however all bulls are minus proven in time)...for high component production and type!
