What is a “Donor” ewe/doe?

Viewed 878 Times 0 Comments

A donor ewe/doe is a female that is given superovulation drugs before she is bred to make her produce more eggs when she ovulates. That ewe/doe is bred and 6 days later the eggs are surgically “flushed” out of the horns of the uterus. Those embryos are graded and washed after being recovered from the donor and then inserted into a recipient ewe/doe.
