Students in Animal Science classes at the Litton Agriculture Education Center had a hands-on learning experience at Trans Ova Genetics on November 13, 2012.  The students learned about animal reproduction in class and then saw the real thing in person.  Trans Ova Genetics is a local business that conducts embryo transfer technologies, in addition to advanced reproductive technologies, including in-vitro fertilization (IVF), sexed-semen, genetic preservation and cloning.  Students were given a tour of the facilities, heard an explanation of the donor procedure, watched them ultrasound a cow, and got to see embryo’s under a microscope to check for viability.
