In this short, winter evening course, we will help you identify calving problems and learn how to solve them. At our Calving School, we focus on common obstetrical issues faced
by producers. Our goal is to teach how
to identify a problem and what can be done to fix it. We talk about everything from a normal
delivery to cesarean sections. We will also discuss cow and calf care around calving time. A hands-on lab portion allows you to visualize and hone necessary OB skills, while in a relaxed environment. For more information, view our
Calving School brochure or call 309.524.6484!
Breeding and AI school:
In this short, spring evening course, we will help you discover ways to improve your herd through various reproductive strategies. At our Artificial Insemination (AI) School, we focus on more than just AI. We discuss a variety of synchronization protocols and the benefits and drawbacks of each. We work with individuals in attendance to find the best protocol for their herd. Those that are interested in artificial insemination (AI) can practice their technique with a hands-on demonstration following the lecture.
