While proper artificial insemination technique is important in any farm’s reproductive program, understanding the cow’s anatomy and physiology is also essential. In this two-day class, participants will learn the biology of bovine reproduction, giving them a better understanding of the whole reproductive system. Hands-on practice with cows will teach them proper insemination technique. The training will consist of both classroom sessions and hands-on practice. Genex along with Cornell Cooperative Extension’s Northwest New York Dairy, Livestock and Field Crops Team will offer this training.
Over the course of two days, students will learn the basics of bovine reproduction. The course will offer as much hands-on practice as possible, but it’s important to note that this is a beginner’s course meant to teach the basics of artificial insemination. Participants should expect to practice inseminating cows on a regular basis in order to become proficient.
Cost: $225. Registration fee includes material and lunches for both days. Classes will be capped at 15. Deadline to register: March 31st.
