Our 1.5-day (12 hour) Thawing & Implanting Bovine Embryos Course delivers comprehensive, hands-on instruction in “best practices” for transferring frozen/thawed IVF & MOET produced cattle embryos. The course is designed for dairy or beef cattle breeders, and large animal or mixed-practice veterinarians who intend to receive and transfer frozen embryos produced through IVF or MOET. Students are also taught how to palpate ovaries to detect corpora lutea (CLs). We also go over synchronization protocols for your Recipients.

Key Benefits

  1. Matching number of embryos collected to number of recipients prepared is unlikely, so without frozen embryos either prepared recipients or embryos are wasted. However, stored frozen embryos will solve these problems.
  2. Frozen embryos open up an additional market for the astute cattle breeder
