Intermountain Embryonics was started by veterinarians Hoyt Rees and Rebecca Holmbeck in June of 2017. Both have worked as veterinarians in the Magic Valley for several years and are deeply rooted in the success of the area's animal agriculture industry. Now that IVF technology has become affordable and efficient, it is Intermountain Embryonic's goal to help beef and dairy producers capitalize on this technology. Through rapid genetic improvement that embryo use can provide, producers can increase production rates, improve animal health traits, and increase feed efficiency.
Genetically superior animals can produce more with less. This helps to make animal agriculture more sustainable and more profitable, while reducing stress on the environment and feeding more people.
