Texas Longhorn Embryos
During the last few years DCC has provided TEXAS LONGHORN aficionados around the world with frozen embryos from select matings of well known pedigreed cows and sires of the highest value. As a result, full blood Texas Longhorns are numerous in The Netherlands, Thailand, Brazil, Poland, Austria, Switzerland, Denmark, Germany, Czech Republic, Israel, Australia and soon to be in several other countries. Due to the economy of shipping frozen embryos rather than live cattle, this is the modern method of genetic movement. Frozen embryos are shipped, received, then thawed and implanted into host cows who are adapted to the local climate. Experienced embryologist are successfully finding a live calf rate with 50 to 75% success on implanted embryos.
Embryos shipped to certain countries require extensive tests for the donor cow, semen sire and embryo collection procedures. These tests are processed and recorded for nearly all countries. The less difficult the requirements for entry the more economical. Some countries have unusual rules which many believe are only trade barriers against the USA, however each of these can be circumvented with special permits by the countries of destination. A good working relationship with the destination government by the embryo purchaser is helpful.
The following matings are currently available. Inventory with prices, sires and dams plus full pedigrees are attached. Contact DCC to purchase or contract for future production.
The donor cows have been selected for this program due to numerous genetic qualities. These are described in the information section on each sire and donor. Please check this data and click onto sires names, grand sires and continue down line deep into the pedigrees for historic information and photos. Some cows are selected for muscle, extra correctness, wide horn, body size, special colors and historic pedigrees. Not all cows are selected for all of the specific virtues. Check the notes for qualities desired.
The sires used are the most superior in the industry. New sires and donors will be added annually as more superior cattle are developed. Background information on Dickinson Cattle Co at www.texaslonghorn.com.
