Prime Valley Farms Utilizes Genetic Preservation in Wagyu Breed
Jul 16, 2020
“We have a very special and rare 100% fullblood Wagyu cow. She is the only cow with her genetics in the USA! The incredible thing about Wagyu is that we can not get genetics from Japan any longer, export of semen, cattle, or embryos is banned. She is a beautiful cow with a kind disposition (photo above).
We want to preserve her cell line for possible future use once this cow now passes on. She is valuable and we could sell her offspring for an outcross to the current Wagyu gene pool. Trans Ova helped us to gather her cell line and send it in for freezing. Trans Ova has always been helpful in answering our questions and responding quickly. Thank you Trans Ova!”
