Vet, Danielle, discusses Advanced Cattle Breeding

Friday, 16 June 2017 - 9:08am

Here at St Boniface Vets, we are now offering a cattle IVF (in vitro fertilisation) to our clients as well as a conventional embryo service.  IVF should be considered as an alternative to MOET (multiple ovulation embryo transfer) for the following reasons:

  • A larger number of embryos can be generated in a shorter time frame as an egg collection can be made every two weeks
  • Eggs can be collected from juvenile heifers
  • Eggs can be collected from pregnant heifers during their first trimester
  • Eggs can be collected from animals with a range of reproductive disorders
  • Less semen is used per fertilisation
  • Several bulls can be used giving greater scoped for genetic improvement
  • The latest science minimises the high birth weights that have previously been linked with this technique
