Artificial Insemination (FTAI)

The training will be conducted over the course of 3 days (1 day theoretical – 2 days practical) starting from 8.30 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. every day. This program is designed for all age groups, including veterinary students, agronomy students, technical careers, farmers, farm assistants, and personnel generally involved with dairy and/or beef cattle. We use every day common language to enable students to obtain the most from the course. The course offers ample “hands on” practical insemination time – the key to becoming a proficient inseminator. The complete program can be sent if required. A certificate will be issued upon completion of the course.

Reproductive Use of  Ultrasound

The training will be conducted over the course of 3 days (1 day theoretical – 2 days practical) starting from 8.30 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. every day. The program is designed for veterinarians, advanced veterinary students, and technicians with basics in reproductive anatomy and physiology in cattle. The course offers ample “hands on” practical in ultrasound – the key to becoming a proficient technician who is able to apply this technique in reproductive programs. The complete program can be sent if required. A certificate will be issued upon completion of the course.
