3-day Course

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

  Course tutor: Brendan John MRCVS

We are pleased to offer a training course on mobility scoring, which qualifies successful attendees to be entered onto the Register of Mobility Scorers (https://roms.org.uk).

The course will cover all aspects relating to working as a registered mobility scorer - from the biosecurity and H&S considerations involved with any work on farms, the benefits and goals of performing mobility scoring, through to the practicalities of carrying out the scoring.

The session will be split into a theoretical class in the morning, completed at our office in Nether Stowey, followed by an afternoon session on a local farm practicing the techniques we have learned in the morning. We will return to the office before we finish to complete the evaluation and certification procedure. Lunch will be provided.

This course is registered with DairyPro, so you can collect points for attendance.

 

9am start at our offices at Inwood Farm.

We will spend the afternoon in practical sessions on a local farm. You will need to bring suitable clothing to keep you warm, as well as clean wellington boots. More details will be sent by email nearer the time so please make sure you provide email details of the person attending the course when you book.

Lunch will be provided, as well as hot drinks during the day.
