Embryo Transfer for Sheep and Goats

Genetic Improvement Through Excellent Reproductive Technology

From around our province to around our world, Creekside Animal Clinic Ltd is highly experienced in the field of embryo transfer of sheep and goats.

Process of Embryo Transfer

Embryo transfer is the best way to move animal genetics around your farm, or around the world, without risk of disease transmission. It can cost less to ship a tank containing hundreds of embryos than to transport a single live animal. Peruse our informational guide to learn more about the process of ET:

  • Ensure that imports are at no risk of introducing disease?
  • Establish purebred lines for breeding programs?
  • Save the valuable genetics of top females?

Regulated Embryo Transfer

Embryos are obtained from genetically superior females bred to superior males. All animal health procedures are conducted, and embryos are processed and frozen according to the sanitary standards of the International Embryo Transfer Society (IETS). All conditions for import permits are negotiated by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency and the importing country’s state veterinary authority.

Canadian animal health standards are among the highest in the world. Elite Canadian sheep and goat genetics are sought to establish breeding programs internationally.

Frozen embryos are a valuable commodity that may be conveniently stored on your farm or shipped to domestic or international buyers.
