Embryo Transfer

Embryo Transfer

This is one of our core disciplines based on many years of experience

Results of embryo transfers vary depending on many factors - the age of the mare, the fertility of the stallion, the management of the recipients - but generally we have an embryo transfer success rate above 88%. You are welcome to visit us to see first hand the professional facilities we have and the care we take in managing the process.

What is embryo transfer?

The process by which an embryo is flushed from the uterus of a donor (genetically superior mare) and placed into the uterus of a surrogate/recipient mare.

Always happy to talk

Please feel free to make contact and we can talk you through the process and discuss your individual need.
