This week's team member spotlight to celebrate 万搏怎么买球 ’ 40th Anniversary is Jose Molina. Jose joined the team 22 years ago and has made a major impact on our Sioux Center, IA location building a large client base and giving our in-house donors special care. We are thankful to have him as a Professional Services Tech Scientist working one-on-one with our clients to Multiply Success. 1. What is your favorite Trans Ova memory? Well, there are too many, but one of those favorite memories is traveling with Diane on one of those week-long adventures with several stops. We were coming back from one of our favorite clients, Ed Pinegar at Pinegar Cattle Company, down in Springfield, Missouri. After a dozen flushes and around 80 transfers and some pregnancy checks, it led to a very long day for a crew of two people. We jumped into the “TOG Van” around 8 pm and went on our way to Des Moines, Iowa to stay overnight there for our next stop (about 5 ½ hours). So, after a long day of searching under the microscope, I knew Diane was exhausted, thus I offered to drive if she was willing to be my second pair of eyes on the road because I was tired too. She pulls out of her purse one of those newly in the market 5-hour-power drinks and said “don’t worry Jose with this drink I’ll be awake all night long” and she drank the whole little bottle. It did not take more than 2 minutes when suddenly Diane was out of commission. Right when I was pulling in to the hotel, she said "I am awake. All I could say was, "you better try to get your money back out of that power drink deal." 2. What do you like best about your time at Trans Ova? The interaction with the clients and their donors, which bring a lot of diversity along with the gain of knowledge in an area that I am passionate about, Reproductive Technologies. 3. What excites you about the future of Trans Ova? Our goals, being part of an important sector of Agriculture, helping our clients to be successful in their programs and at the same time, and having a positive impact on the big picture of genetics improvement and efficiency in the cattle industry. 4. What thoughts and emotions come to mind when you think about Trans Ova’s 40th anniversary? I am very excited about it, it leads me to think about of all the changes and challenges we’ve been through to make a better Trans Ova and to better serve our internal and external clients. 5. In what different ways has Trans Ova excelled or grown in the last 40 years? Technological, with the incorporation of sexed semen technology as well as cloning and IVF technology’s improvements - which lead us to the next level in efficiency and proficiency on those technologies; intellectual, with the addition of the R&D department and the continuous education of each of us to better position ourselves in the future; geographical, with the expansion and improvement of old and new locations to better serve our clients all over the USA and beyond; and last but not least, the human resources that without all of us working as a team can’t be possible to build and maintain todays TOG. 6. What is your biggest accomplishment at Trans Ova? Being able to do what I do with excellence! One of our core values ….

40th Anniversary Spotlight – Dr. Jon Schmidt In honor of Trans Ova’s 40th Anniversary, we have asked team members to reminisce about their time with Trans Ova and what they are excited about for the future. Our next team member spotlight to celebrate is Professional Services Veterinarian and Chief Operations Officer, Jon Schmidt. Dr. Schmidt has been apart of the Trans Ova team for 16 years at the Sioux Center, Iowa location. He has guided our team through rapid growth and continually strives to Multiply Success for our internal and external clients. 1. What is your favorite Trans Ova memory? Traveling with Daryl and Diane to OH and IL in my formative years. I learned a ton from Daryl’s ability to tell stories and connect with clients and Diane’s proactive planning, organization and efficiencies in the lab. They worked extremely well as a team, enjoyed spending numerous hours in the car together, and had a lot of fun. 2. What do you like best about your time at Trans Ova? First, I am blessed to work for and with some of the most incredible people in the world. I learn something from every single one. Ranchers, brands, and herd prefixes that I idolized as a kid are now clients and friends. My favorite days of ‘work’ are when I am in the field living our mission with our team and clients. Second, Trans Ova is driven by vision and innovation and continues to pivot and evolve. The company is a different version of itself every year and it’s been exciting to participate in its growth, innovation, and leadership. 3. What excites you about the future of Trans Ova? The potential of young talent on our team. We are well equipped to build on the platform that has been constructed over the past 40 years. It’s exciting to see the commercial dairy and beef segments beginning to use our tools and we will depend on this talent pool to help us deliver on these and other opportunities 4. What thoughts and emotions come to mind when you think about Trans Ova’s 40th anniversary? With all of the animals and clients we have worked with over 40 years, what is the cumulative impact our team and toolbox has had? Not only on genetic gain but also on the hope and inspiration we have given peoples in their spirit, passion, and dreams. 5. In what different ways has Trans Ova excelled or grown in the last 40 years? The obvious growth example is becoming a company that produces over 250,000 embryos per year out of 50+ locations. Within that journey we have grown to One Team of over 300 teammates. We were the first company to produce DT frozen IVF embryos capable of delivering satisfactory pregnancy rates and continue to be the gold standard in embryo and calf quality. We have developed a LEAD program that provides a pipeline of developing leaders to carry our team into future. Drs. Faber and Funk started TOG by flushing cows and our team has since added the tools of sorted semen, IVF, cloning, gene editing, recipient solutions, and R/D collaboration to our toolbox. No other company in this world offers the complete ART toolbox that we offer. We continue to serve our first client, and our founders and first employees continue to work for TOG today or have retired while doing so. 6. What is your biggest accomplishment at Trans Ova? Continuing to personally serve an elite list of breed leading ranchers in the Dakotas (many of which I have served for years and have become my best friends) while also having the opportunity to support TOG operations with vision, direction, decision, and encouragement. Accomplishing this with support and understanding from a virtuous wife of 15 years and 3 kids that know me as ‘dad’ and still think I’m cool (well, 2 of them anyway) is probably my proudest accomplishment.//www.dkvfx.com/RSSRetrieve.aspx?ID=30911&A=Link&ObjectID=1043219&ObjectType=56&O=http%253a%252f%252fwww.dkvfx.com%252ftog-blog%252f40th-anniversary-spotlight-dr-jon-schmidt//www.dkvfx.com/tog-blog/40th-anniversary-spotlight-dr-jon-schmidtMon, 25 May 2020 04:00:00 GMT

40th Anniversary Spotlight – Samantha Graves In honor of Trans Ova’s 40th Anniversary, we have asked team members to reminisce about their time with Trans Ova and what excites them about the future. This week's team member spotlight to celebrate 万搏怎么买球 ’ 40th Anniversary is Samantha Graves. First an embryologist and now a client service representative, Samantha has spent 18 years with Trans Ova helping build and grow the business in Missouri. We are so proud to have her on our team! 1. What is your favorite Trans Ova memory? I have so many awesome memories from my years at Trans Ova involving coworkers, clients and the amazing animals that we are blessed to work with. I have had the honor of working on National Champions animals, as well as animals in the very top echelon of EPDs in their breed. I have worked with clients who have become friends and coworkers who have become family. 2. What do you like best about your time at Trans Ova? From my very first day, the fact that I could be a part of an animal that would someday be famous long before it would be slapped has amazed me. But, my favorite part of my job is the people. Hearing the stories behind the animal or the farm with the passion that the owner or herdsmen has for their operation reminds me of why we do what we do! 3. What excites you about the future of Trans Ova? We have come so far in 40 years; I can’t imagine what the next 40 will bring! The possibilities are endless. 4. What thoughts and emotions come to mind when you think about Trans Ova’s 40th anniversary? Trans Ova has stood strong through so many changes and variables of agriculture through the years. It began during some of the hardest times in the history of farming, the 1980s. It survived during the technology boom of the 90s and really began to grow and bloom during the 2000s. This is largely in part due to the drive and determination of our founders who never forgot how it all started and have not left their roles in the daily procedures. Their hard work and dedication laid the groundwork for the solid company we are now. 5. In what different ways has Trans Ova excelled or grown in the last 40 years? It is not often that you can watch a company have the growth that Trans Ova has over the years. Going from just a handful of employees to hundreds all over the country has been humbling. There have so been so many lives touched, both clients and employees over the years that I couldn’t even begin to put a number on it. Our science, service and abilities have evolved over the years to best suite our clients. 6. What is your biggest accomplishment at Trans Ova? Working for Trans Ova has allowed my personal life and professional life to be one and the same. I am grateful for that opportunity and it fuels my passion for both.//www.dkvfx.com/RSSRetrieve.aspx?ID=30911&A=Link&ObjectID=1043217&ObjectType=56&O=http%253a%252f%252fwww.dkvfx.com%252ftog-blog%252f40th-anniversary-spotlight-samantha-graves//www.dkvfx.com/tog-blog/40th-anniversary-spotlight-samantha-gravesMon, 18 May 2020 04:00:00 GMT

40th Anniversary Spotlight - Holly Molina In honor of Trans Ova’s 40th Anniversary, we have asked team members to reminisce about their time with Trans Ova and what they are excited about for the future. This week's team member spotlight to celebrate 万搏怎么买球 ’ 40th Anniversary is Holly Molina. In her 17 years, Holly has been a traveling embryologist, a the IVF lab embryologist and now is a Research Technician in our Sioux Center, IA center. 1. What is your favorite Trans Ova memory? When I was traveling with Dr. Funk, we ran out of gas on the interstate somewhere in Illinois. Daryl could see a gas station across a corn field. He told me stay in the vehicle while he walked to the gas station to get fuel. While I was waiting, a cop car pulled up behind me. The officer asked what the problem was to be stopped in this area of the interstate. I told him we ran out of fuel and I was waiting for coworker to come back from gas station. The officer tells me how dangerous it is for a young lady to be sitting on interstate by herself and gives me a ride to the gas station. The look on Daryl’s face when I come pulling up in the cop car was priceless! And to hear Daryl explain to the cop why he left me in the vehicle. OH, and Daryl had a gas can in the vehicle because this might not have been the first time he ran out of fuel while traveling to the next client. 2. What do you like best about your time at Trans Ova? Oh, the places you will go with …. Technology. Working with Trans Ova I have met some amazing people (including my husband) and traveled to places I never thought possible. I will be forever grateful for the opportunities Trans Ova has provided. 3. What excites you about the future of Trans Ova? Technology! Working with beef and dairy producers helping them produce higher genetic animals for their herds. Agriculture as a whole is under a great amount of pressure to produce more product with less. At Trans Ova we can use our reproductive technologies to make that goal a reality. 4. In what different ways has Trans Ova excelled or grown in the last 40 years? The technology at Trans Ova has grown exponentially. When I started at TOG traveling to different ranches, flushing and freezing embryos, I thought this is pretty amazing.

This week's team member spotlight to celebrate 万搏怎么买球 ’ 40th Anniversary is Holly Molina. In her 17 years, Holly has been a traveling embryologist, a the IVF lab embryologist and now is a Research Technician in our Sioux Center, IA center. 

1.  What is your favorite Trans Ova memory?
When I was traveling with Dr. Funk, we ran out of gas on the interstate somewhere in Illinois.  Daryl could see a gas station across a corn field.  He told me stay in the vehicle while he walked to the gas station to get fuel.  While I was waiting, a cop car pulled up behind me.  The officer asked what the problem was to be stopped in this area of the interstate.  I told him we ran out of fuel and I was waiting for coworker to come back from gas station.  The officer tells me how dangerous it is for a young lady to be sitting on interstate by herself and gives me a ride to the gas station. The look on Daryl’s face when I come pulling up in the cop car was priceless! And to hear Daryl explain to the cop why he left me in the vehicle. OH, and Daryl had a gas can in the vehicle because this might not have been the first time he ran out of fuel while traveling to the next client. 

2.  What do you like best about your time at Trans Ova?
Oh, the places you will go with …. Technology. Working with Trans Ova I have met some amazing people (including my husband) and traveled to places I never thought possible.  I will be forever grateful for the opportunities Trans Ova has provided.   

3.   What excites you about the future of Trans Ova?
Technology!  Working with beef and dairy producers helping them produce higher genetic animals for their herds.  Agriculture as a whole is under a great amount of pressure to produce more product with less.  At Trans Ova we can use our reproductive technologies to make that goal a reality.

4.  In what different ways has Trans Ova excelled or grown in the last 40 years?
The technology at Trans Ova has grown exponentially.  When I started at TOG traveling to different ranches, flushing and freezing embryos, I thought this is pretty amazing.  Now we are shipping embryos in incubators all across the US, doing OPU’s on farm, and cloning animals just to name a few of our technologies.  NOW that is pretty amazing!

40th Anniversary Spotlight – Harry Groenendyk In honor of Trans Ova’s 40th Anniversary, we have asked team members to reminisce about their time with Trans Ova and what they are excited about for the future. Our next team member spotlight to celebrate 万搏怎么买球 ’ 40th Anniversary is our Chief Technology Officer, Harry Groenendyk. Over Harry’s 15 years with Trans Ova, he has served in a few different roles in both Iowa and Maryland, playing a huge roll in our continuous process improvement efforts. Harry currently leads the IT department in Sioux Center, IA. 1. What is your favorite Trans Ova memory? There are many memories at Trans Ova. A family fun one I have is when my son Jake took his first steps in the old IVF lab in the basement – with Char as a witness! A work-related fun memory was the buzz around when we first did a “Reverse Sort” and the opportunities we were envisioning it would bring for our clients. 2. What do you like best about your time at Trans Ova? Having been involved in many parts of the company, each role has been an opportunity for me to grow. There are valleys and high points but understanding how both of those provided learning experiences for me is instrumental in who I am today. 3. What excites you about the future of Trans Ova? The people we continue to attract that become a part of Trans Ova are instrumental in where we are today, and who we will become in the future. 4. What thoughts and emotions come to mind when you think about Trans Ova’s 40th anniversary? Excitement. There is never a shortage of opportunities the we evaluate and consider. Stability. As many ART companies have come and gone over the years, we have sustained challenging times and seasons in the industry. 5. In what different ways has Trans Ova excelled or grown in the last 40 years? The system to process large amounts of IVF embryos. Thinking back to when Jake took his first steps (1992) – with a couple incubators and a few matings – to where we are today. 6. What is your biggest accomplishment at Trans Ova? Getting some team members to use the ET system back in 1991. We migrated from the paper, 5 x 7 card-based system to a computer. We knew that if we could get one of the “most difficult users” to adopt the system, we would be able to roll it out in full force.//www.dkvfx.com/RSSRetrieve.aspx?ID=30911&A=Link&ObjectID=1042923&ObjectType=56&O=http%253a%252f%252fwww.dkvfx.com%252ftog-blog%252f40th-anniversary-spotlight-harry-groenendyk//www.dkvfx.com/tog-blog/40th-anniversary-spotlight-harry-groenendykMon, 27 Apr 2020 04:00:00 GMT

I guess the one that sticks out the most is when Trans Ova used to host a 5K race for employees and families. I remember my oldest son, Kolten, participated and won the race. The trophy was none other than the mounted cow head that floats around Trans Ova. Kolten was able to hang that traveling trophy is his bedroom at home for a year before he had to relinquish it to the next winner. Talk about a proud kid! 2. What do you like best about your time at Trans Ova? TOG is a company that definitely puts family first. I am so thankful that in the years I have been here, whenever I had to leave for a sick kid, an appointment, or to catch a ball game, I was always welcomed to do so. As a parent, it is amazing to have a company that puts family first. 3. What excites you about the future of Trans Ova? I am excited to see how Trans Ova develops overseas and different countries as the years progress. I think that market is going to explode in popularity. 4. What thoughts and emotions come to mind when you think about Trans Ova’s 40th anniversary? My first thought is “Wow!” 40 years? That’s amazing! I look at the employees and see how many we have that are 15 plus years and I am immediately humbled. Trans Ova has such an amazing team all over the world. 5. What is your biggest accomplishment at Trans Ova? It may sound cheesy, but I think my biggest accomplishment is the people I have met and the various relationships I have made. They are definitely lifelong.//www.dkvfx.com/RSSRetrieve.aspx?ID=30911&A=Link&ObjectID=1042837&ObjectType=56&O=http%253a%252f%252fwww.dkvfx.com%252ftog-blog%252f40th-anniversary-spotlight-kay-krull//www.dkvfx.com/tog-blog/40th-anniversary-spotlight-kay-krullMon, 20 Apr 2020 17:31:00 GMT

This has become second nature to many people within the industry. One growing trend is exporting embryos to other countries. To export to another country there are testing requirements for the donors, bulls and even the embryos. So where does someone even start? We had the opportunity to sit down with 万搏怎么买球 Export Coordinator, Nicole Seible and discuss the key facts to know when it comes to exporting embryos to other countries. What countries are we able to export to? 万搏怎么买球 can export to just about any country depending on the embryo testing requirements of the desired country. The top three countries we export embryos to are Canada, the EU and Australia. Are there any specific requirements when it comes to exporting to China? Yes, anyone interested in exporting China needs to have the work done at a China approved facility. Trans Ova Iowa and Trans Ova Maryland are the only two facilities currently in the Trans Ova system approved for China exports. There are only 20 approved facilities currently approved in the United States. Also, it is important to know that the semen needs to come from a China approved bull stud facility. Currently, there is only 11 approved bull studs. Who sets all the testing requirements for exports? The USDA and the specific country’s government work to set testing requirements and regulations to bring embryos in and out of the country. Trans Ova does not make these regulations and rules. We have a dedicated staff that learns these rules and ensures we are following them and educating our clients. How often do the requirements change? The USDA or country’s government can change requirements at their discretion. The rules could be set for 10 years, and then change all of the sudden. In these cases, we work quickly to make the appropriate changes in our system and make sure any current shipments are still eligible to be exported. How many embryos did Trans Ova export last year? Last year, Trans Ova exported just over 5000 embryos. What is the most important thing people should know about exporting embryos? Be proactive! One of the most important things people should know about exporting embryos is knowing what country you would like to export to. From there, Trans Ova can identify the country’s testing requirements. A common mistake is that people will create embryos for a designated country then change their mind. By that time, it is too late, as each country has different requirements and the testing window may have closed. Being able to be proactive and planning ahead is extremely beneficial. Are there different requirements for in vitro (IVF) embryos versus in vivo (ET) embryos? Yes, depending on which country you have chosen for export. For Canada, IVF and ET embryos, as of right now, do not have any testing requirements. But again, that is up to the USDA and Canada’s discretion to change the testing requirements as they see fit. Some countries require extra testing for IVF and some countries require extra testing for ET. Therefore, it is good to investigate testing requirements before the embryo creation process begins.

In Vitro Fertilization & 万博登录客户端 : A Comparison Many breeders have elite females from which they can market valuable genetics and offspring. With the use of advanced reproductive technologies, more offspring can be propagated to help multiply the success of breeding and marketing programs. While many breeders are familiar with embryo transfer (ET), an increasing number of breeders are implementing In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) into their reproductive programs. 万博登录客户端 Conventional (in vivo) ET involves specific hormonal treatment (with follicle stimulating hormone) of donor cows and heifers to cause multiple follicles to ovulate. The donors are bred using artificial insemination (AI) following super ovulation after estrus (standing heat). Approximately seven days after insemination, embryos are non-surgically collected or “flushed” from the donor’s uterus and transferred fresh into synchronous recipients who will serve as surrogate mothers, or frozen to be implanted at a later date. Embryo transfer is one option that can increase a cow’s reproductive efficiency, allowing her to have numerous calves per year. While the average cow produces six to seven calves in her lifetime, ET can increase her reproductive efficiency to numerous calves per year – allowing breeders to multiply the success of their superior pedigrees. Embryo transfer is a very accessible technology and produces the option to have embryos transferred fresh into synchronized recipients, or to have the embryos safely frozen to be transferred at a later date. By creating more offspring that are valuable to a herd, breeders can advance their marketing opportunities, improve the reproductive performance, and enhance the rate of genetic gain. In Vitro Fertilization An IVF collection, called an Aspiration or Ovum Pick Up (OPU), is the process of harvesting unfertilized oocytes, (unfertile eggs) directly from the ovaries of a donor cow or heifer. Recovered oocytes are fertilized one day after aspiration, and transferred seven days after fertilization. During this eight-day time period, they are cultured and grown in an incubator with controlled media, temperature and environment to mirror the cow’s uterus. They are then transferred into recipient cows seven days after the recipient’s standing heat or estrus, which is similar to the transfer process for embryos produced by embryo transfer. Breeders who choose to use IVF technology have the opportunity to obtain more offspring from valuable females in their herd, similar to the benefit of embryo transfer. Many breeders do not realize however, the additional benefits when using IVF. IVF is a technology that allows breeders to collect offspring from open cows, pregnant cows, virgin heifers, as well as problematic females that have had difficulty in conventional breeding attempts. It is also possible to retrieve oocytes (unfertilized eggs) from donors shortly after a death event to produce one final genetic collection. The applications of this technology allow breeders who would like to get a jump on the next generation to do so without altering other vital aspects of their breeding program. Historically, breeders were forced to decide whether to risk future productivity of young donors by flushing them as virgin heifers or just postponing embryo production until after their first calf. Using IVF technology to create pregnancies from a donor gestating her natural calf allows breeders to generate offspring from elite heifers and keeps them on an annual production cycle to calve on schedule with the rest of the herd. When compared to embryo transfer, IVF may further maximize the potential of an elite female in a shorter time period, as the interval between IVF aspirations is shorter than the interval between traditional embryo transfer sessions. It is possible to obtain IVF cycles every week or every other week, whereas most embryo transfer programs will collect donors every 60 days. While conventional embryo transfer generally requires the use of two to three units of semen per donor, IVF can be used to maximize the value of rare, sexed, or expensive semen. One unit of semen can be applied to oocytes from multiple donors, or semen from several different bulls may be used to fertilize a group of oocytes collected from an elite female. There is a perception in the industry that IVF is a more costly option. However, it actually becomes more cost effective than traditional embryo transfer on donors that produce limited numbers of embryos. This fact – coupled with the opportunity to increase the number of calves, the sex ratio of the calves and the ability to increase the opportunities for collection, makes IVF a leading choice for the progressive producer looking to increase the number of offspring that create the most value in their program. What’s the best option for me? Embryo transfer is likely the best choice for prolific embryo producing donors that can meet the owner’s embryo production needs. In this scenario, embryo cost is economical and in vivo embryos hold a slight pregnancy rate advantage for both fresh and frozen embryos when compared to IVF. In many instances, IVF provides more value. It is more cost effective to use IVF on low embryo production donors or females you would like to keep in the production cycle. Additionally, IVF can reduce donor boarding costs and semen costs by utilizing a single straw of semen to fertilize multiple embryos, with the opportunity to use more than one sire on a single donor aspiration. IVF is also a more economical choice if offspring of one gender are strongly desired from bulls that do not have frozen sexed semen available. Even if the initial cost of the procedure is higher, the actual cost per embryo will often be lower. Conclusion Depending on the specific needs of a breeder’s program, various approaches can be taken. It is important for producers to understand how each and every reproductive technology can be used to benefit your operation. While IVF may not be the answer for every donor program, many have realized it is a tool that offers unique opportunities to extend elite genetics provided by both proven donors and rare or expensive sires. To effectively and economically integrate IVF technology into a breeding program, breeders are encouraged to carefully review their goals, understand the opportunities and limitations of both options, and work with the experienced, professional teams to determine the best advanced reproductive technology programs to meet their goals.//www.dkvfx.com/RSSRetrieve.aspx?ID=30911&A=Link&ObjectID=879292&ObjectType=56&O=http%253a%252f%252fwww.dkvfx.com%252ftog-blog%252fin-vitro-fertilization-embryo-transfer-a-comparison//www.dkvfx.com/tog-blog/in-vitro-fertilization-embryo-transfer-a-comparisonFri, 07 Jul 2017 04:00:00 GMTMany breeders have elite females from which they can market valuable genetics and offspring.

Improving Beef Genetics Through New Technologies In this week’s Angus VNR, Mark Allan, Director of Genetic Technology, 万搏怎么买球 , discusses the opportunity for producers to improve all-around genetics through new technologies. This video is a production of Certified Angus Beef and the American Angus Association. We see new technological advances everyday and the beef industry is seeing the impact. In this segment Allan discusses the evolution of genetic evaluation and technologies including DNA, IVF and embryo transfer. There is no question the dairy industry has led the way, encouraging the beef side to follow. Allan said, “We’re starting to see that evolution begin to happen in the beef industry as these technologies are combined and come together, focus on quality of products, animal longevity–all these traits and the specifics that are gonna be needed for commercial producers to continue to have success and make genetic gains and focus in on target markets is gonna take bringing all these technologies together at all levels of the ‘beef pyramid’ as I call it, all the way from the nucleus genetics, and way down to the food we produce for our consumers."//www.dkvfx.com/RSSRetrieve.aspx?ID=30911&A=Link&ObjectID=930638&ObjectType=56&O=http%253a%252f%252fwww.dkvfx.com%252ftog-blog%252fimproving-beef-genetics-through-new-technologies//www.dkvfx.com/tog-blog/improving-beef-genetics-through-new-technologiesFri, 30 Jun 2017 04:00:00 GMTIn this week’s Angus VNR, Mark Allan, Director of Genetic Technology, 万搏怎么买球 , discusses the opportunity for producers to improve all-around genetics through new technologies.

Using GnRH to aid in heat detection Tips from 万搏怎么买球 The use of GnRH after CIDR's have been pulled can help shorten or even eliminate the heat detection window. This optional step can be done on the entire group or alternatively on just the non-responders to force ovulation. This can potentially increase the number of recipients available for your embryo transfer needs. The pregnancy rate may be slightly lower than if heat detecting alone, but you will end up with more pregnancies overall from more embryos being transferred.

OUR PLANET, OUR PEOPLE, OUR WORLD The world’s population is estimated to reach 10 billion people by the year 2050. This will require raising overall food production by 70% and 100% in developing countries.

Managing recipient stress after pregnancy diagnosis It seems most cattle breeders focus of their management of nutrition, environment and synchronization prior to artificial insemination or embryo transfer. While getting cows pregnant in the critical time period is essential to your herds financial success, maintaining those pregnancies is also important. Now is time to manage these cows after breeding and pregnancy detection. There will always be early pregnancy loss from 30 to 90 days that may range from 5%-20%. The key is to minimize this loss. Additional benefits also accrue as this fetal developmental period is important to the reproductive health of resulting calves. A few of the areas of focus should be attempting to minimize environmental, nutritional, and social stresses. I never like to see cattle lose significant body condition during this time. Balancing energy, mineral and adequate but not excessive protein is important. Heat stress can be significant in late summer. Adequate shade and cooling should be provided. Often overlooked is social stress. Frequently changing pens and herd mates will result in stress brought on by establishment of social hierarchy, often referred to as pecking order.

Now is time to manage these cows after breeding and pregnancy detection.

There will always be early pregnancy loss from 30 to 90 days that may range from 5%-20%. The key is to minimize this loss. Additional benefits also accrue as this fetal developmental period is important to the reproductive health of resulting calves.

A few of the areas of focus should be attempting to minimize environmental, nutritional, and social stresses.

I never like to see cattle lose significant body condition during this time. Balancing energy, mineral and adequate but not excessive protein is important.

Heat stress can be significant in late summer. Adequate shade and cooling should be provided.

Often overlooked is social stress. Frequently changing pens and herd mates will result in stress brought on by establishment of social hierarchy, often referred to as pecking order. This can result in significant early pregnancy loss.
