Practical, farm-based tuition delivered by Torch Farm Vets to improve your livestock and business performance.
Join us for a DIY AI course with a focus on practical hands-on tuition to give you a thorough understanding of the cow’s anatomy and managing the AI process.
This is a three-day course including training at our South Molton surgery followed by two days on-farm.
Working on farm, you will have the opportunity to practice on live cows in a familiar and relaxed training environment. You will be given feedback during the practical sessions as you focus on perfecting your technique.
The course will include:
- Anatomy of the cow reproductive system
- Review of cow oestrus cycle
- Semen handling
- Welfare and legislation
- Practical technique
We are able to offer 50% funding for beef farmers who meet the below criteria:
