Just curious - it seems like it would be more effective than embryo transfer. I expect it's the cost of the drugs, but I'm wondering it could also be the difficulty in collecting the folicles. TIA

IVf is not very successful in horses. In vitro just doesn't work, or almost never. we don't have the right formula yet to make it happen in a dish, altho i know of one that did. Also, recovering the egg from the ovary is much more invasive that recovering an embryo that is floating around loose in the uterus.
