The IVF procedure involves creating embryos from unfertilized egg cells (oocytes) by fertilizing them with semen in a Petri dish. A trained technician or veterinarian collects oocytes from a donor cow using an ultrasound-guided follicular aspiration technique.

Boviteq West offers a complete In Vivo Embryo Collection and Transfer (conventional flushing) program. The donors can be housed at Boviteq West’s facility with the entire process carried out by experienced Boviteq West veterinarians and technicians. This program offers the customer all the benefits of conventional flushing without the stresses of setting up the donor, timely hormone administration, heat detection and artificial insemination. Customers can take advantage of the Boviteq West Recipient Program where we will set up recipients for the fresh embryos. The program is flexible and can be tailored to the specific needs of the customer…

Recipient Program

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 recipients 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…
