Embryo transfer is a globally executed technique which, when properly done, has both economic and sanitary advantages. International guidelines are available to prevent infection of the embryo with pathogens, both originating from the donor animals as from the environment. This manuscript describes the bacteria, viruses, protozoa, fungi and prions that are of major concern in the context of embryo transfer in cattle. In addition, the actual scientific knowledge on these pathogens is evaluated in terms of the current international and national guidelines and legislation.
