Student-run business ships cattle embryos | News
ROME, Ga. (AP) - A student-managed business at a northwest Georgia college is shipping embryos taken from the college's cattle herd to South America.
The Rome News-Tribune reports that Berry Farms Genetics Enterprise is working to complete the $27,000 order.
Shannon Soafer, a senior from Rossville, the interim leader of the Genetics Enterprise, says the business will be shipping 99 embryos taken from the college's Jersey herd to a dairy in Argentina.
During the last five years, the genetics program has distributed embryos from the Berry herd to dairy producers across the United States and this marks the second international shipment.
