Gumz Farms offers a very successful embryo transfer program. The recipient mares are provided by either Gumz Farms or an outside embryo transfer facility and are leased by the owner once they are 30 days in foal. These mares are to be returned to Gumz Farms or recipient herd within 6 months after foaling. The cost of our embryo transfer program is broken into two parts. The cost for embryo recovery and transfer is 500 per cycle. If we do not have recipient mares available, the embryo is sent via courier to the airport for $250. Once the recipient mare reaches 30 days gestation with a viable pregnancy she is leased for $3000. Board and care of the recipient mare are the responsibility of the owner, who is encouraged to pick her up at this time. Board fees for the donor mares vary with accommodations
Stallion fees, transportation of semen, registration, blood typing, etc. are the responsibility of the mare owner. If applicable, we have programs that meet all the requirements of the KyBIP program.
We averaged the following recovery rate: 78% transfer/pregnancy rate in 2009, 72% in 2010 , 69% in 2011, 77% in 2012 and are looking forward to a great 2013 season.
