The Artificial Insemination Certification Program is geared at educating beef and dairy producers on how to artificially inseminate their own cattle. During the course producers will learn:
- The benefits of using artificial insemination instead of a bull
- The importance of proper heat detection and the tools available to help you better heat detect
- Various estrous synchronization protocols to use within the herd
Training will include both classroom and on-farm activities. The program will be held July 13-14, 2015 at Mayville Town Hall, Dorchester. The fee is $75 per person and is limited to 20 individuals.
