AABP ET Seminar at Virginia Tech
The American Association of Bovine Practitioners (AABP), with the support from the American Embryo Transfer Association, will hold a three-day embryo transfer seminar for beginners August 1-3, 2022, at the Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine in Blacksburg, Virginia. If you want to learn embryo transfer, or if you have begun and are struggling, this seminar is for you. You will be taught the most up-to-date techniques by a staff with years of experience at your side.
Superovulated cows will be provided for each student to collect, search for, evaluate, and freeze embryos on their own. Microscopes, freezers, and all embryo equipment will be provided, but you are welcome to bring any equipment with you. All techniques will be discussed and demonstrated on donor cows before you begin your work on the practice cows. Superovulation, collection, freezing, transfer, estrus synchronization, donor scheduling, and embryo morphology will all be discussed in detail. We will also include a discussion on transferring fresh and frozen IVF-derived embryos.
The highly qualified faculty of experts teaching the seminar include Joel Anderson, DVM (Cross Country Genetics); Bill Croushore, DVM (White Oak Veterinary Clinic); Sam Edwards, DVM (Harrogate Genetics International); Randall Hinshaw, DVM (Ashby Genetics); and Greg Schueller, DVM (Sunshine Genetics). In addition, 24 continuing education credits will be available through AABP for this hands-on seminar.
As part of the registration, the AETA is giving one free annual membership to the association and one free registration to its annual conference to every attendee.
