DIY AI TRAINING: Course information
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.
Courses are supervised by John Dawson, MRCVS, BVMS, Cert CHP. 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).
