 Video intended to aid embryo transfer in goats, sheep

Two organizations hope their recently published training video will improve embryo collection in small ruminants.

The American Embryo Transfer Association produced the video, “Small Ruminant Embryo Transfer Training,” which shows the process of inducing super-ovulation and collecting and transferring embryos.

The video, which runs about 50 minutes, was captured at the Swiss Village Farm Foundation, an organization in Newport, R.I., that has been collecting and storing embryos from heritage ruminant breeds.

AETA members can watch the video free here, and a DVD copy is available for $125 for nonmembers and $50 for members.
