farmerjan wrote:One of the farmers I test for has some very high end Holsteins and he goes to Trans Ova in Maryland to aspirate a couple of his cows and has sent embryos all over the world. He went to Switzerland this past Oct to see some of the cattle that are a result of the embryos he's sold.

Maybe a little of the subject
But wondering is there a market for IVF angus embryos
boondocks wrote:Embryos are sold (several together) at every registered Angus sale I've been to, with their ancestry proudly touted. Some go for real money.
