Multiple Ovulation Embryo Transfer Technology (MOET) is used to improve the success rate of fertilization during artificial insemination in animal husbandry.
• In the method the cow is administered with certain hormone with FSH like activity.
• This hormone leads to the production of 6-8 eggs per cycle instead of one.
• The animal is then mated with an elite bull or is artificially inseminated.
• The fertilized egg at 8-32 cells stages is then recovered non-surgically and transferred to the surrogate mothers.
This technique ensures the increased production of herd in a short time.
