Embryo Procedure: Did you own the donor dam at the time of the flush?

When you purchase embryos, it is a CSA requirement that the seller (or acting Sale Agent) complete and sign an Embryo Transfer of Ownership form. You must then forward the signed form to the CSA office so that the embryo signatures can be logged into the herd book records. This will ensure that your embryo registrations are not delayed unnecessarily when the results arrive from the lab.
