Bovine Artificial Insemination Workshop

Artificial insemination (A.I) is a great way to improve the management of your beef herd. There are many benefits to A.I, which includes a shorter calving season, reduced cost, breeding for known traits, and reduced injury to their cattle to name a few. The bottom line is that it allows a producer to bring the best genetics available into their herd with a reduced cost and risk.

N.C. Cooperative Extension of Yancey County is partnering with Shannon Roberts of Roberts Cattle Service/ABS Global to conduct an A.I workshop. The workshop will include two evenings of lecture and one day of hands-on work. Participates will leave with the skills and knowledge to pursue an A.I breeding program on their operations.

The lecture portion of the workshop will be held April 4 and 5, 2019, at the Yancey Senior Center from 6–9 p.m. The hands-on portion will be Saturday, April 6, beginning at 9 a.m. at a farm location TBA. The cost of the workshop is $450 per person (or couple). Since space is very limited registration and a $225 deposit is required by March 8 to secure a spot. Registration is on a first come first serve basis. A light meal and refreshments will be served each day.

If you have any questions or to register, contact the N.C. Cooperative Extension of Yancey County at (828) 682-6186.
