Cattle Embryo Transfer Procedure
A step-by-step laboratory training manual which draws together all the elements for a successful embryo transfer. For the past several decades, artificial insemination has allowed genetic progress to be achieved relatively quickly through the widespread and efficient use of frozen semen. As a result of the advancement of embryo transfer (ET) techniques, cows can produce many offspring. A more rapid genetic gain is achieved which complements an AI programme. This book should be of interest to veterinarians, animal scientists, cattle farmers and artificial insemination technicians.
