Events over the last 125 years that have been particularly important to the development of embryo transfer in farm animals are reviewed, arguing that an appreciation of the history of a discipline helps shape its future. Special attention is paid to how the motivations of the scientists involved have changed over time, and how these changes have influenced the practical application of embryo transfer to animal breeding.
