Latest AI Course from Evolution - and it was a HUGE SUCCESS!!
We usually advertise our courses on Facebook, send a few emails around and generally put the word around. Somehow, this course filled up without my even noticing. Then I had an unexpected extra person who had booked on through a “friend of a client” so, as a result, it turned into the largest group I have taken to date. All thanks, therefore, to a helpful farm client in Dorchester, Tom King, offered to hold it at his farm in return for a place on the course for one of his staff. Tom has a brilliant set-up and 600 cows (which provided more than enough barreners to go round) making for an extremely good 3 days' teaching during what must have been one of the hottest June weeks on record!
Big farm, lots of barreners, locking yokes………..what more could a girl ask for?! Maybe a slightly cooler few days as we chose THE hottest few days in June recorded since the 1960s. But there was a great mixture of farming backgrounds represented, with a few suckler boys and a once-a-day-milking man in the audience which livened up proceedings somewhat, but the most confusing part of the whole three days was that, of the 8 people attending the course, 4 of them were called Dan!
It was great to take a group where everyone was so genuinely interested in learning and gaining a new skill. Thanks to all of them for showing so much enthusiasm and I hope that they will succeed in maintaining great fertility on their farms.
