In vitro Embryo production

In vitro Embryo production

TAG sexed high genetic merit F1 embryos

Genetic Gain in Bos Indicus – Sahiwal and Gir

Highly environmentally adapted but requiring preservation and some development to improve milk and increase reliability of genetic transmission. 

IVEP enables:

  • Widespread use of  F1 embryos from selected cows, not just limited to cows at hand
  • A tool to selectively improve indigenous breeds. 
  • Indigenous breeds

    Value of adapted breeds is to improve longevity in milk production. Very costly to producers if cows only have a few lactations – even if production is high.
