This book briefly reviews the history of equine embryo transfer, covering in clinically practical terms the techniques, equipment, and management protocols currently in use. Embryo transfer has become a big business, especially for breeding racing stock (horses and camels), and is therefore a very important aspect of equine practice. Ed Squires and Pat McCue have been involved with the development of embryo collection and transfer procedures since the early 60s and have both contributed important techniques and innovations to the process through their research and clinical experience. This book captures the clinical experience, so far, and applies it directly to equine practice. The book is of great value to general equine practitioners for reference, equine reproduction specialists, animal science at the graduate level (equine track), and breeders.

Oz documents what can happen when a person embraces the challenges that change brings and uses them to positively influence the generation that follows. As “the wizdom of Oz” says, the future belongs to the next generation, not the current one, and our responsibility is to help them make decisions that are “informed, intentional, and purposeful.” If you desire to leave an influential inheritance for the upcoming generation, Challenge of Change will help show you how to work with dauntless energy to achieve that goal.
