November 2013

We have just completed another Embryo Transfer (ET) program where 7 ewes that we consider to be elite were used as donor ewes. The preparation process for the donor ewes and recipient ewes was intensive for several weeks, preparing the donors for super-ovulation and then artificial insemination (AI), followed by a busy day harvesting embryos and transplanting these into recipient ewes. It is incredible to see the 5 day old embryos through the microscope, understanding that these will develop into lambs. Our special ET lambs are due to arrive in late April 2014, and the ram portion will feature in our 2015 Sale Team.
We use elite ewes and rams in an ET program to create a greater number of progeny than would be possible in a single year through natural mating.
