Piemontese Embryo Programme

Avocet are undertaking an advanced Piemontese embryo programme to ensure the development of a healthy and disease free herd; that are genetically superior to any other beef cattle.

The programme will be overseen by various top research and development groups and the data will be used to further enhance Avocet fodder and cattle housing solutions.

The embryo programme will be undertaken using a ‘Black Box’ facility to ensure that animal welfare is at the forefront of all developments.

A black box facility is an innovative and unique installation that allows cattle handling to be undertaken in the dark, in comfortable conditions to reduce stress upon the animal.
