For the first time in Azerbaijan, embryo transfer will be carried out in cattle.
According to the information provided to "APA-Economics" by the Ministry of Agriculture, the main purpose of embryo transfer application is to increase the number of calves obtained from cows of superior quality.
For this purpose, 35 Simmental heifers were brought to the Republican Artificial Insemination Center located in Goygol district.
Starting from October, embryos produced by the German company "Bayner genetics" will be transferred to the heifers.
The introduction of embryo transfer is considered the best alternative to importing animals from abroad.
Importing and transplanting frozen embryos from abroad is easier and cheaper than importing breeding animals.
The technology used for embryo transfer makes it possible to breed animals in the most intensive way and increases the number of genetically valuable animals by ten times compared to the traditional reproductive method.
