Genetic progress forward

An added value to outstanding mares :

Although embryos transfer raised the exceptional mares offspring, it is to notice that their contribution is low if compared with males one. A clone is the mean to at least double the female's part to genetics progress.

For a long time the more competitive a mare was, the less productive she was. Just the contrary to what a good selection programme would require !
Embryo transfer partially corrected this problem. But there is still some space for increasing the female 's offspring before any risk of consanguinity will be raised.
Some exceptional mares can even disappear due to an accident without having given birth to any descendant. If their cells have been fortunately stored, it will then be possible to perpetuate a lineage with a high potential.

We will soon have examples to present.
