Embryo Transfer and Artificial Insemination - how can these help the small alpaca farm?
 
Dr. Stephen Hull
 
 
The advantages and disadvantages of embryo transfer (ET) and artificial insemination will be discussed.  Embryo transfer, for many years, has now been routine in cattle and other livestock.  In particular, the advantage of ET for the small alpaca farm will be highlighted.  Procedures, drugs, time, necessary supplies and veterinary assistance will be discussed.  Artificial insemination is not as useful in camelids and its problems/issues will be discussed.   Lots of time for questions both public and privately after seminar.
 
Sit for a bit, enjoy lunch and learn about this exciting technology.
