DIY Artificial Insemination Course - 13th - 15th November 2019

Farmer DIY Artificial Insemination Course

13th- 15th November 2019 + refresher day 18th December 2019

DIY AI can save you time and money by getting your cow inseminated at the right time without the stress of waiting for the technician.

Our DIY AI courses are delivered over four days: 85% of the course time is devoted to hands-on tuition, so that the dexterity skills required have adequate time to be mastered.

All aspects of AI are covered, including: anatomy & physiology, legislation, safe handling of Liquid Nitrogen & semen straws, thawing procedures and the practical AI technique.

Practising the skill is on live cows, on farm. This on-farm environment gives a very relaxed training atmosphere. Assessment of the technique is done by ultrasound examination (cows are inseminated with a viscous liquid which shows up on an ultrasound scanner).

The course consists of 4 days training in total: 13th – 15th November, plus a refresh training day on 18th December.

£430 + VAT per person
