In addition to regular embryo transfer, B&W Stud & Reproduction Services also offers an embryo freezing service.
Embryo freezing or ‘vitrification’ is a method of rapid cryopreservation, resulting in an embryo that can be preserved indefinitely in liquid nitrogen for transferal to a recipient mare at a later stage. Embryo vitrification provides a means of preserving the genetics of a particular mare/stallion combination, for transfer to a recipient when convenient. This can be particularly useful for embryos that are flushed from the donor mare later in the Autumn. These embryos can then be frozen, stored and transferred to recipients early in the spring, resulting in early foals.
Embryo vitrification also removes the need for synchrony of the donor and recipient since the embryo can be frozen until transfer is convenient. In addition, export worldwide of embryos reduces the need for transport of live animals and allows a worldwide market if selling embryos at auction. Please contact the stud team on 01666 880501 if you require further information on embryo vitrification or routine embryo transfer.
