AN EVOLUTION VETS FARMER TRAINING COURSE

 CERTIFICATED ARTIFICIAL INSEMINATION COURSE

 3-day Course

  £475 + VAT      

 Open to All

Tutor: Sally Wilson BVMS DBR MRCVS

This course teaches skills involved in performing DIY bovine A.I. to you and/or your staff, progressing Evolution Vets' strong belief in sharing some of their veterinary knowledge with farmers, thus helping them to increase self-sufficiency and control. 

This course is a 3-day course, with in-depth tutoring on both a practical and theory level - practical elements necessarily taking the limelight. The course covers:

  • anatomy/physiology of the cow's reproductive tract. This gives an understanding of what you aim to achieve  . .  and why.
  • a full demonstration of semen-handling technique. This aspect of the procedure is very important, but often neglected and downgraded.
  • a practical one-to-one demonstration of how to pass an AI gun through the cervix. Emphasis is placed on how to avoid common pitfalls.
  • Ultra-sound scan of a uterus, showing how to determine where semen has been deposited.

 

PLACES ARE STRICTLY LIMITED TO ENABLE MAXIMUM INDIVIDUAL TUITION. This is a popular course: early booking is recommended

  £500 + VAT per module OR

These courses are held in very small groups to enable high amounts of attention and tuition per person. The course is based very much on practical demonstration and tuition, giving each attendee as much practical experience as possible. Module 1 covers the basics, with the next 2 modules increasing in intensity and level of practical tuition. By the end of the last module, the attendee will be equipped with the skills necessary to:

  • perform a pregnancy diagnosis down to 35 days 
  • identify twins 
  • identify structures on the ovaries such as ovarian cysts.

In order to attend modules 2 and 3, module 1 must firstly be satisfactorily completed.

Extensive notes will be provided with “homework” between modules which will allow the attendee to improve his/her practical skills before attending the next module.  There will also be back up advice and phone support between modules with visits/coaching supplied on-farm at a reduced hourly rate if required.
