Shipping Costs

The NSRRC can provide shipping of swine across the country in our environmentally controlled vehicle. Shipping costs are calculated based on the mileage from Columbia, MO to your facility and back to Columbia, MO. Additional charges may apply. We will do our best to combine shipments with other investigators to help share these charges.
