In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)

The IVF program offers customers the most advanced reproductive technologies. The donors can be housed at Boviteq West's facility with the entire process carried out by experienced Boviteq West veterinarians and technicians.

IVF offers producers the opportunity to collect animals much younger than traditional conventional flushing. Producers also have access to reverse sorting of semen and a selection of prerelease semen which are all major advantages in the ever changing and evolving dairy industry. The program is flexible and can be tailored to the specific needs of the customer. 

 IVF Benefits:

Faster Genetic Progress Beef or Dairy Program

Heifers can be enrolled at 7 months - at a younger age than with conventional flushing 

More calves / donor / year 

Fertilize multiple donors' oocytes with a single unit of semen

Cows producing many unfertilized embryos via conventional often achieve better results with IVF

 

Pregnant cows can continue to be collected to 120 days pregnant and sometimes beyond

Reverse sorted semen maximizes female creation from sires not typically offered in sexed semen

The interval between collections is much shorter - just 14 days
