Innovation Builds Opportunity

SimVitro® cattle embryos result from decades of the J.R. Simplot Company’s animal science research and development dedicated to making commercial application of in vitro fertilization (IVF) economically feasible.

IVF with SimVitro® embryos help you meet a variety of herd goals:

  • Changing herd genetics in a single generation
  • Increasing the economic value of calves
  • Implementing an efficient, cost-effective breeding solution for crossbred cows
  • Improving pregnancy rates in heat-stressed and repeat breeder cattle
  • Reducing dystocia due to birth weight in heifers

Why In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)?

IVF is the process of fertilizing oocytes collected from donor cows with semen in a laboratory setting. It has been proven to improve reproductive quality and efficiency in both dairy and beef cattle.

5 ways IVF can improve your operation: 

  1. Increased herd production
  2. Improved product quality
  3. Wider variety of donor genetics
  4. Higher pregnancy rates during times of heat stress
  5. Cost control
