This course features a hybrid format with two evening educational sessions via Zoom and two in-person sessions on the farm, allowing participants to work with cattle. This course typically runs in April and October of every year.
The Artificial Insemination Program features an interactive and fun approach to learning about breeding cattle. Hands-on activities are used throughout the program to assist participants in learning about breeding their cattle.
