What is the success rate of transferring embryos?

On average a success rate of about 50% can be expected, but much higher figures have been obtained. The success rate of embryo transfers depends on prevailing conditions such as:

  • Physical conditions of the surrogate ewes
  • Stress factors
  • Accuracy of preparation of the surrogate ewes
  • Feeding conditions after transferring
  • Health condition of ewes
  • Quality of the embryos (company responsible for flushing the embryos)
  • Quality of the implants (person responsible for transferring the embryos)

There is a tendency to sell 2nd grade embryos. These embryos will most certainly have an impact on the success rate. GLG prides themselves in only supplying 1st grade embryos.
