AOA Registers its First Huacaya Cria 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 Huacaya registration for an alpaca born as a result of ET. Congratulations Ian & Jennifer Lutz of Cas-Cad-Nac Farm LLC for submitting the first Huacaya ET registration! Jennifer Lutz of Cas-Cad-Nac Farm performed the embryo recovery and transplant for the alpaca.
CCNF CAPRICCIO -ET was born September 7th and his sire is SNOWMASS MESSIAH (815629) with the donor dam being XANADU P CADENZA (31150217).
Ian & Jennifer will receive special recognition later this year. This is an exciting time for the industry!
