Our History

In 2011, Dr. Gander received the opportunity to work with a fellow producer and close friend, Dave Gregory. Dr. Gander began developing skills in his primary practice interest of bovine embryo transfer. As results improved, so did client interest and Stateline Vet Service began flushing cows regularly in 2013. During that time, a few show-focused breeders began attempting to utilize the emerging technology of in-vitro fertilization into their herd.

The benefits of the IVF technology were easy to see. However, at that time the performance did not justify the expense. Seeing there was an opportunity to provide a better service to their clients, Stateline Vet Service decided to pursue quality bovine OPU/IVF practices. In 2015, Stateline Vet Service partnered with Boviteq in Madison, WI to help with the goal of providing exceptional bovine ET/IVF service to our producers in southern Wisconsin and northern Illinois. The Stateline Vet Service team spent the next couple of years traveling from farm to farm providing OPU services out of a converted horse trailer. We learned many lessons in IVF practice the hard way and made vast improvements in a short period of time. As the business gained momentum, another area of opportunity was identified. We needed to find a way to house beef and dairy donors.

Cultivating a couple of our great producer relationships, Blueprint Genetics and Maple-Leigh Futures were both founded in the fall of 2017. Success was contagious and business expanded from year to year. In the summer of 2020, we were able to add housing capacity at Blueprint Genetics and open a new donor facility, Rock Creek Innovations, specializing in maximizing success in young donors.

The path has been long and challenging, but the efforts have resulted in SVS Repro; a high-volume AETA Certified ET/OPU business focused on maximizing donor performance, the production of quality embryos, healthy calves, and most importantly the success and profitability of our producers. Attention to detail and maintaining the success of the producer as the primary goal that has earned SVS Repro its distinguished reputation and loyal clientele.
