Training Manual for Embryo Transfer in Cattle
by George E. Sidel and Sarah Moore Sidel
Publisher: Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations
Preparing this training manual for the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations was truly challenging. Since most of our planet's inhabitants live in so-called developing countries, it was deemed appropriate to provide information that would be useful in both developed and developing countries. Keeping this manual to manageable size, while providing sufficient basic information to make it useful, required numerous arbitrary decisions concerning what to include or exclude. We have limited citations to scientific literature to those thought to be useful for readers of the manual, rather than attempting to document all information from a scientific perspective. Clearly we have borrowed heavily from these sources and from unpublished observations. We acknowledge with gratitude the work of our colleagues, students and associates.
