explain about Multiple Ovulation Embryo Transfer ? ( MOET )

Multiple ovulation embryo transfer or MOET is a technique used in animal breeding to increase the number of progeny. A cow or other female animal is administered with hormones with FSH like activity. As a result, the cow super ovulates i.e. instead of producing one egg produces 6-8 egg per cycle. The cow is then artificially inseminated or mated with a superior quality bull and fertilisation occurs. The subsequently formed embryo are recovered at 8-32 cells stage from the cow by nonsurgical procedures and are implanted in surrogate mothers. As a result, multiple progenies are obtained from a pair of superior animals in a shorter time.
