covering service is still working normal

We keep getting questions as to whether the covering service continues due to the existing corona crisis.
The Bavarian State Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Forestry issued a current statement on horse breeding, which we reproduce here:

Is horse breeding allowed? (04/01/2020)

Required activities in the field of horse breeding are still possible. This also includes the mare being bred by natural jump or artificial insemination, including the associated transportation of the horses. However, these should be limited to the measures currently required. The distance and infection protection rules must be observed. Deck stations should draw up and monitor an action plan to avoid corona infections.

This means that breeding can continue and mares can be brought to us for covering.
