What kind of male and female cattle are selected for this 'MOET' programme?
Asked by subratabanerjee686 | 19th Nov, 2015, 10:18: PM
There are two broad criteria for selecting donors for most embryo transfer programmes:
(1) genetic superiority, that is animals that contribute to the genetic objectives of the programme.
(2) likelihood of producing large numbers of usable embryos.
Mostly, dairy cattle is selected for one major trait i.e milk production for MOET programme rather than beef cattle.
The potential donor cow should be reproductively sound to produce maximal results.
