The program is not exclusive for our IVF customers. It can be tailored to meet the needs of any client needing access to extra recipients. Only having to purchase at 60 days pregnant, it presents a great opportunity. The recipient herd has proven very successful for producers who have limitations in running a recipient program. All of our recipients maintain a high health status, being tested for Leucosis, Neospora and BVD prior to entry and again after entering the premises. Any animals failing the tests are returned to the source. We want our customers to have peace of mind and confidence when purchasing a recipient from Boviteq West.
Here at Boviteq West we are constantly sourcing Heifers to enter our high health status recipient herd we use strict criteria to ensure that our clients achieve both success and receive a quality product.
The protocol is set out below, because the market place is constantly changing call David to discuss current pricing.
