Costs/worth of embryo transfer
Curious what experiences people have had with ET, and what the real costs were for you. We tried once synching a donor and recipient mare on our farm which involved lots of Regumate, but we were not able to get it close enough to work. The vets at VA tech recommended using a farm that specializes in this where you ship the embryo to a waiting mare, lease that mare until the foal is born, and then return the mare to the farm. The ET specialist we spoke to there has had better luck that way so, a couple questions I guess:
1) Was your experience good, bad, mediocre?
2) What was the final cost?
3) Did you lease a mare or buy a surrogate?
4) Would you do it again?
