ADCA Protocol for Embryo Transfer / Transplant (ET)

1. All DNA genotypes referred to in this protocol shall be compatible with the procedures and standards of the ADCA and the laboratory selected by the ADCA to determine and store genotypes, to maintain its genotype database, and to use the genotypes in its database for parentage verification of the animals in its registry.

2. The DNA genotype of an ET calf’s sire shall be on file with the ADCA. The fee for this genotype shall be the responsibility of the owner of the semen used in the ET procedure unless the sire’s genotype is already on file with the ADCA.

3. The DNA genotype of an ET calf’s donor dam shall be on file with the ADCA. The fee for this genotype shall be the responsibility of the owner of the donor dam at the time of the ET procedure unless the donor dam’s genotype is already on file with the ADCA.

4. The DNA genotype of a calf resulting from an ET procedure shall be obtained and filed with the ADCA and shall verify parentage by the sire of record out of the donor dam of record. A calf resulting from an ET procedure shall not be registered in the ADCA without complete parentage verification by DNA genotyping. The fee for this genotyping shall be the responsibility of the owner of the calf.

5. The owner of record of the donor dam or her unfertilized egg(s) at the time of conception shall be identified as the breeder of the calf.

6. The owner of record of the recipient dam at the time of the ET calf’s birth shall be identified as the first owner of the calf.

7. Registration of ET offspring shall be made on a regular registration application. Designation of the calf’s ET status shall be recorded on the application.

8. The registration certificate of every ET calf shall contain the designation ET.

9. Calves born or conceived after the death of the donor cow shall be eligible for registration under the same conditions and provisions that govern the eligibility of ET calves prior to the death of the donor cow.
