The Reproductive Biology Center is home to research that benefits health and fertility of both livestock and humans. Located on 1,200 acres near St. Gabriel, the center has a history of firsts in reproductive technology including producing calves from 40-year-old frozen bovine semen, the first cloned pigs using embryo bisection, and the first domestic cat from nonsurgical embryo transfer. Through research involving transgenic goats, scientists developed a life-saving drug that prevents clotting in heart patients. The Reproductive Biology Center is a unit within the Central Research Station.
