AOA Registers its First Crias born From Embryo Transfer!

In 2016 the AOA Membership voted to allow the registration of alpacas born as a result of Embryo Transfer (ET) and Artificial Insemination (AI), provided they were born after December 31, 2016.

We are pleased to announce that we have recently completed the first registrations for alpacas born as a result of ET. Congratulations Scott & Leslie Rebtoy of Healing Springs Suris for submitting the first ET registrations! Jude Anderson of Alpaca Embryo Technologies and Pucara International performed the embryo recovery and transplant for both alpacas.

HSS INDEPENDENCE -ET was born July 4th and his sire was PUCARA KAHUNA'S TULLY with the donor dam being MADIBA'S WCF EMMA LOU. HSS IMAGINE BY LEXUS -ET was born August 14th and his sire was PUCARA PURESURI KAHUNA'S LEXUS with the donor dam being SUR-REAL CHILLI.

Scott & Leslie will receive special recognition next month at the A-OK Alpaca Blast Off in Shawnee, Oklahoma. This is an exciting time for the industry!
