Spring 2021 AI Short Course is scheduled to be held Thursday, March 11th to Sunday, March 14th.
Artificial insemination is one of the most effective assisted reproductive technologies to improve cattle operations. There are numerous advantages to utilizing AI including the use of superior sires for improved production traits, reducing the number of herd bulls necessary, increasing the genetic merit of replacement females, and decreasing the chances of transmitting a venereal disease. Beef producers have been reluctant to implement AI in their herds, citing reasons such as increased time and labor requirements, difficulty of AI, cost, and lack of necessary facilities.
If any of these reasons have ever prevented you from using AI, this course is for you.
In order to provide all attendees with a safe learning environment, masks will be required to be worn over the nose and mouth at all times.
Additionally we will have the following readily available for use:
