This two-day class is a comprehensive and hands-on instruction in bovine artificial insemination (AI). The class is designed to help you increase your operation’s profitability and efficiency by teaching the skills and techniques of AI.
There are many benefits to introducing artificial insemination into your program. You can improve the genetic quality of your herd while eliminating the need to purchase, house, and feed bulls. AI also gives you access to superior and proven herd sires at an affordable price.
You will learn:
Cattle Artificial Insemination Procedure
Frozen Semen Handling and Thawing
Basic Anatomy of Female Reproductive Tract in Cattle
Heat Detection Systems
Synchronization Systems for Heifers and Cows
Class enrollment is limited to keep the classes small, allowing more hands-on time with the cattle.
Need help with the green algae growing in your pond?
Want the healthiest environment to stock your pond for fish?
Simply want to know more about funding resources available?
Whether your pond is used for recreation, livestock water, habitat for fish and wildlife, it enhances the quality of life, and value of the property on which it is located.
However, did you know your pond should be inspected, and receive regular maintenance, as well? The three major parts of a pond – the dam, the watershed, and the basin – should be regularly inspected for irregularities, wayward vegetation, gopher holes, etc. Identifying and remedying issues early can prevent extensive costly repairs later.
A working knowledge and checklist to inspect your pond, ensuring its overall longevity.
Knowledge of tools and resources available to you from your local NRCS office.
In addition to having a healthy structure, a pond must also have a healthy number of aquatic plants. A healthy pond has a moderate amount of aquatic plants that do not interfere with the use and enjoyment of the pond.
This workshop gives you the opportunity to learn proper pond maintenance and balance. You will also receive instruction on available funding opportunities.
NO SITTING IN THIS CLASS!
Participants will begin at Central Tech’s Business Center. We will then tour three (3) different locations in close proximity to our Drumright campus to see pond improvement and construction.
