Abstract

The structure, logistics and preliminary statistics of a industry- integrated dispersed nucleus MOET/A.I. (Multiple Ovulation Embryo Transfer/ Artificial Insemination) testing scheme are reported. Response to superovulation was a mean of 7.12 + 0.56 viable embryos per flush with a mean of 71.15 + 3.55 days between flushes. Conception rates varied from .370 to .605 depending on breed and embryo form. Breed, mating sire, and E.T. personnel all had significant effects on embryo yield.
