By grouping all oocytes from one breed together for fertilization, we are able to produce and freeze large volumes of embryos. SimVitro embryos are less expensive and easier to use compared to traditional IVF embryos.
Our innovative method allows producers to transition to different breeds more quickly than previously possible. SimVitro embryos can be used to transition from Holstein to Jersey cows in just one generation. With Artificial Insemination (A.I.), it would take 5 generations to produce Jersey cows that are just 1/32 Holstein.
Research has shown that embryos produce higher pregnancy rates when transferred to heat-stressed cows. View data.
Using our proprietary approach, we are able to produce a variety of SimVitro embryos, including Jersey, Holstein and beef.
