Embryo Transfer


We started the Sedgewood Registered Angus herd in 1994 using 100% AI with no clean up bulls and later began Embryo Transfer (ET) with our top "super cows" as donors.  Next, embryos from elite outside donors helped expand the number of superior females in our herd.   Each January we transfer about 50 embryos into our commercial Angus recipient cows. Although most of our embryos are now from elite in-house females, we continue to add new genetics from outside donors.   

In 2003 we closed our herd to outside live animals to protect us from bringing in any cattle diseases.  All new genetics come in as semen and embryos.
