The Basics of Embryo Transfer

8th May 2014

It takes four to six months for the eggs in a cow’s ovaries to grow to their ovulatory state. Management of the cow during this period is critical in determining the ability to yield transferable embryos that become established pregnancies. Later, it takes another six weeks for the embryo to implant into the dam. So again management during this period is critical. Six months before you plan to start your ET program, you should contact Bovi Genetics to talk over your plans and how to get the best results from your investment.

Key Factors to Consider:

Stress – Production, Nutrition, Disease, Environmental

Donor Cow – Calving date & cycling activity

Super Ovulation – Check donor cow for good corpus luteum – required for injection program

Recipients – Healthy, correct age & size, had a good natural heat
