Flying Cow Genetics now offers a four-day hands-on bovine artificial insemination class. During the class, you can expect to learn artificial insemination, pregnancy checking, basic anatomy of a cow’s reproductive tract, heat detection, synchronization protocols, as well as cattle nutrition and general herd health.
The lead instructor is owner Dr. Tony Small. Very few artificial insemination schools offer the opportunity to learn directly from a veterinarian. In addition to Dr. Small, the school features leading authorities in the area of herd health and nutrition.
