Embryo Transfer - MOET
Agtech's intensive 3-day course is comprehensive, hands-on instruction in embryo transfer technology. Workshop is designed for large animal and mixed-practice veterinarians who wish to add MOET services to their practice. The class is also intended for dairy cattle breeders or ranchers who would like to perform embryo transfer on their own cattle. Upon completion of the workshop, participants will have knowledge and confidence necessary to schedule and perform traditional embryo transfer procedures.

Students will palpate synchronized cattle to learn how to isolate ovaries and identify ovarian structures. Live animals are also used for practice in catheter placement, embryo collection and transfer technique, extensive manipulation, grading and freezing practice. Throughout the workshop you will be exposed to all embryo stages commonly encountered in a commercial embryo transfer environment. Instruments used during class (scope, freezer) and consumables are exactly what you would use in commercial ET.
