Embryo Transfer Training
Rafter D Genetics offers a complete Embryo Transfer Training program for livestock breeders and Veterinarians. With 30+ years of ET experience and 25 years of teaching experience, Dr. Clifford Dorn offers a practical approach to learning the ET process. The ET training course is a 4 or 5 day program offered on a personalized basis. The course is designed to train 1 student at a time thereby offering the personalized attention needed to understand the process. Multiple students may attend together if they would like to. The course includes embryo collection & transfer manuals and embryo grading training manuals. Rafter D provides all of the equipment for the course. No equipment rental is required. We can also assist the student in the purchase of new and used equipment at a great savings. Classes are offered throughout the year as requested. Three weeks advance notice is needed and a ($500 for U.S. Residents/$1500 for international students)  non-refundable deposit is required at the time of registration. The balance is due 1 week before the class starts. Please Note: Training fees are non-refundable within 7 days of the course start.
