In 1991, the Laboratory for the Research of Animal Reproductive Traits was established at the Lithuanian Veterinary Academy under the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, and in 1998, the Embryo Transfer Laboratory was added as a training and production laboratory.

On 1 September 2016, the laboratory was renamed to the Animal Reproduction Laboratory, and became part of the Large Animal Clinic under the Veterinary Academy of the Lithuanian University of Health Sciences. Since its establishment, the Laboratory was headed by Prof. Habil. Dr. Henrikas Žilinskas until 2021.
