Abstract

Five cyclic primiparous sows were used to test a surgical procedure for in vivo transcervical collection of pig embryos. The procedure consisted of shortening the uterine horns. After surgery, all sows returned to estrus and embryos were recovered following artificial insemination. Transcervical uterine flushing was carried out in four sows. On average 3.6 +/- 1.5 (mean +/- SD) embryos were recovered from the five sows. The results indicate that it is possible to recover embryos transcervically from sows with a resectioned uterus.
