DIY AI COURSE
Following the successful uptake of the DIY artificial insemination (AI) courses in 2017, AHDB Beef & Lamb is extending the funding until March 2020. A further 250 course places are available to suckler farmers with more than 30 breeding females, with 50 per cent of the cost covered by AHDB Beef & Lamb.
XL Vets Training Services and Westpoint Farm Vets will be delivering the courses on a regional basis across the country. To book onto a course, please contact your nearest provider. Full contact details and regional coverage can be found below.
The funding will also be available to final year agriculture students who can successfully demonstrate how they will use the skills gained on the course in their future career.
James Shouler, a suckler producer from Oxfordshire, attended a course in 2017. In this short video he talks about the benefits of being able to perform AI on his herd.
