Reproduction technology and genetic improvement in alpacas

From Michell's newsletter dated 1-14-14

With the object of furthering the development of reproduction technology and achieving genetic improvement in alpacas, the Grupo Michell and Mallkini proudly present the results of this valuable research - the Collaborative Programme for Research and Development - conducted by renowned professionals who have devoted their knowledge, time and effort to obtaining this important information.  Today, it is set out in our first newsletter, and we are sure it will be the starting point for further research achievements.

In a short summary of the newsletter, we might mention that the results obtained to date refer to areas such as Genetic Improvement and Advanced Reproduction Technology.  The latter includes the reports of in vivo and in vitro embryo production, and those related to the collection, handling and conservation of semen, and artificial insemination.
