high brow cat is $25,000, a cutting horse stud.  several others are approaching that, with thoroughbreds eclipsing that with another 0 sometimes.

 I remember hearing that a unit of holstein semen from a bull nnamed ABC Reflection Sovergein sold at an auction in
Canada back in the 1960's for $150,000 by a family named Roman who were Canadian Provincial Governors at that time. They thawed the unit. A glass ampule and placed it on their fireplace mantel as a conversation piece. I have not been able to find anything on the net to verify this as this was well before the internet age.

Basin Rainmaker 654x or Traveler 124 GDAR. They run between $1,500 and $2,000 per unit, if you can find it. Some of the Wye plantation bulls will command a high dollar, but I am not a big fan of those genetics. Some of the bucking bull semen is tremendously high, also.

Bodacious semen is rare, pretty much has to be bought in auctions, so it can get a lil pricey, couple grand a straw.  Not anywhere near the most expensive though because with his calves pretty much all you get is a name.  Most of them dont buck worth a flip, which shouldnt surprise anyone, Bodacious himself wasnt technically a great bucker.  His head was what you had to watch for, he would pull you down and crush your face, most of the guys he bucked off was largely in part to them trying to avoid his head.

another undiscovered bull is the great alexander hamilton, but his papers were unclear so he was never registered in any breed organization.

cyt Maxim, to the credit of the purchaser, sold for 12,500 for 2 straws, allof the proceeds going to the jared bedwell memorial fund. he then, very generously donated it back to be resold, i think it brought 3000 for 2 the second time
