About Collection of Semen & Embryos
We have spent much discussion on this topic as a staff, as well as speaking with multiple people who have taken professional Classes from Artificial Insemination Professionals and a University. After much thought, we as a Board of Advisors have come to the decision that the following is needed in order for Semen or Embryos to be acceptable parentage for IGSCR registerable offspring.
With this type of sire or dam, there are so many cooks in the kitchen, as they say. There is far too much room for error. Embryos and semen can also be mixed up
We desire accurate registrations. Especially with so many hands in the pie when it comes to semen and embryos, we feel this procedure is the best way to prevent as much room for error as possible. Thanks so much for your help.
