Deer & Small Ruminants

IMG_6721*Over 1200 whitetail donors collected and over 3,500 embryos transferred!

The Hoofstock Genetics team has more combined experience in whitetail deer embryo transfer than any other company in the world.  The 7 year history of our deer embryo transfer program spans across 8 states and over 40 different farms.  In addition to whitetails, we have performed embryo transfer on mule deer, red deer, alpine and Nubian ibex, rocky mountain bighorn sheep, and domestic sheep and goats. We look forward to the challenge of working on new species.

25 Whitetail Deer Embryos from one donor

When the program is executed properly, amazing results can be obtained as pictured to the left.  A doe produced 25 viable embryos using only half of a straw of semen.  We have collected as many as 31 viable deer embryos from a single flush.
