From the Pasture to the Lab
Of the many individuals whom I have taught to biopsy bovine embryos, Matt Barten stands out as exceptionally serious and focused.
With the significant differences we see in full sibs from trait to trait, I feel that the genomic scores are invaluable tools to sort for genetic improvement. Changing genetic interval is crucial for beef production to compete for the protein markets.
Matt Barten, a God-fearing man who loves his family and serves his Lord with the talents He has given him, has taken embryo biopsies with the utilization of genetic EPD’s to a new level. His passion for this “cutting edge” technology will one day bring it to the forefront of the cattle industry.
I am convinced that Matt’s meticulous attention to detail will lead to nothing but resounding success. The combination of an excellent lab environment coupled with Matt’s work ethic will lead to great embryo development and success rates.
