Setting the Gold Standard

Donor cows are high-quality exclusive cows who produce the embryos we use to impregnate the receipt cows on the property. Along with our champion donors cows, we have 30 recip cows who carry the embryos of our donors.  

IVF For Cattle 

A flush is the gathering process to retain the oocytes that become embryos in the lab. There can be 1-30 embryos created from a single flush.  

The team at GoldMark Farm hand-selects the sires to match with each donor cow in hopes of producing a champion heifer. The semen is either sorted by sex when collected or put through reverse sorting at the time of implantation.  

Sexed semen is at a premium because you are guaranteed a heifer calf, which is easier to market and sell and often worth more money in the long run.  

Our cattle are fed a specific diet and given a minerals-free choice to ensure optimum health for producing calves. We feed hay from the farm in the winter and grain from a local feed mill specially formulated for the breeding stages, including the pregnant cows, the calves, and moms with babies at their side.

Sires
