Complete Bovine Embryo Transfer Class

The staff at Agtech is proud to offer 3 days (26 hours) of comprehensive, hands-on instruction designed specifically for dairymen or ranchers wanting to perform embryo transfer for themselves, on their own cattle. Agtech's detailed training class also provides the large animal veterinarian with the knowledge and skills essential for successfully incorporating embryo transfer service into his/her practice. Once the course is completed you will have all the information necessary to perform embryo transfer. The class is easily completed in 3 days because your time is spent learning procedures in a modern, efficient facility. The class does not consume instruction time mixing media that are readily available for purchase nor washing inexpensive disposable supplies for re-use.

You must be experienced and highly competent in cattle artificial insemination to take the embryo transfer course. Please do not enroll in the AI class and ET class consecutively. Taking an AI class is not the same as having experience and being competent in AI. Agtech makes this a prerequisite so the class flows as a unit from demonstration to practice to competency. The instructor's time is spent solely on teaching embryo transfer which gives you the most complete learning experience.

Many non-veterinarians have asked if they can start an embryo transfer fee-for-service business after taking Agtech's class. Please recognize that the class is not intended as a business course. Agtech's class teaches the skills needed to perform embryo collection, grading, freezing, thawing and transferring.
From a legal basis, each state has regulations and laws specifying whether non-veterinarians can practice embryo transfer for a fee. It is in your best interest to contact your local veterinary board about such laws.
We also encourage you to view the AETA web site (American Embryo Transfer Association) regarding their certification program. Agtech believes it is in the best interest of the embryo transfer industry to have only highly skilled individuals performing embryo transfer for a fee. Agtech's class is the first step in your efforts to become proficient at embryo collection, grading, freezing and transferring.

Graduates of the class can potentially receive 26 continuing education hours. All classes are held at the Agtech Reproduction Education Center in Manhattan, Kansas.
