About Embryo Transfer
The technology of embryo transfer (“ET”) in cattle came of age in the 1980s and became a standard of practice in the United States. Today, access to certified embryologists is widely available and use of ET is the most cost efficient way to multiply superior genetics derived from a special female.
An absolute basic understanding of ET is that fertilized embryos may be harvested non-surgically from a donor cow and transferred non-surgically into a recipient cow. Thus, females of superior genetics (donor cows) may become the biological mothers of calves raised by surrogate females of inferior genetics (recipient cows). Further, when embryos are harvested from donor cows, they can be cryogenically preserved by freezing and storing at an extremely low temperature in liquid nitrogen. At some later date, these frozen embryos can be thawed and transferred into recipient cows. This process is what allows us to share our genetic base with you through the sale of frozen embryos from superior donor cows.
If you are interested in any of the genetics and would like more information, please don’t hesitate to call or email us. We are happy to assist you in learning more about the necessary steps to build your next generation of calves through ET.
