Awassi Sheep - East Friesian Sheep - Assaf Sheep

Embryo Transfer

Here is a video we took at the end of October 2011 showing Dr. Blackwell performing an embroy transfer at Karras farm. The process is generally painless for the sheep and takes roughly 4-6 minutes to complete from the time anesthesia is administered to the time the ewe is released into recovery. Some ewes receive two embryos and other will receive one. We trust in the doctors judgement when accessing the ewes at the time of surgery. The lamb success rate is equal to that of natural conception and does not result in any negative side affects for the ewe or lamb.

Karras Farm performs embroy transfer and artifical insemination annually to ensure the very best genetics in our animals.
