REPRODUCTIVE SOLUTIONS FOR YOUR OPERATIONS
Reproductive services for sheep, goat and deer breeders
Semen Technologies (e.g. freezing)
Artificial Insemination (AI)
Multiple Ovulation and Embryo Transfer (MOET)
Laparoscopic Ovum Pick-Up (LOPU)
In Vitro Embryo Production (IVEP)
Import/Export of animals, embryos and semen
In Vitro embryo production from bovine and buffalo calves
Dramatically accelerate your speed of genetic gain by making "babies out of babies". We can collect oocytes by laparosocpy from your calves between ages of 2 and 6 months (average so far ~16-18 eggs/calf), make embryos using in vitro technology, and transfer them to adult recipients that will carry the pregnancy to term (>50% pregnancy). The result is that your best animals will have babies on the ground before they actually reach age and weight to be bred for the first time.
Reproductive Training for professionals and technicians
We can accommodate training solutions tailored to your specifications and needs. Multiple vs. single technique; small vs. large groups. We have training experience with different requirements and environments, and can provide the course in English, Portuguese and Spanish. Popular hands-on courses include laparoscopic procedures (LOPU, AI, ET); surgical procedures (embryo collection and transfer); transcervical insemination (goats) and non-surgical embryo collection (goats).
Reproductive consulting for private practitioners and corporations
We can help your organization or private practice incorporate new services or improve results by means of establishing a consulting strategy that gives you access to our experience and protocols. This service is popular among clients incorporating new services after taking our training courses.
Assisted reproduction in Wild Animals
We've had the priviledge of participating in several wild animal reproduction efforts, including multiple ruminant species in South Africa (Springboks, Blesboks, Gemsboks and Wildebeests) as well as with big felines in Brazil (Pumas, Jaguars and Panthers)
These are some of the most outstanding achievements we've been able to accomplish in 20 years of implementing assisted reproduction technologies for accelerated genetic improvement in sheep and goats.
