Artificial Insemination Short Course

Price: $450.00

Where: Animal and Food Sciences Laboratories Building / LSU AgCenter Central Research Station 

Artificial insemination is one of the most effective assisted reproductive technologies to improve cattle operations. There are numerous advantages to utilizing AI including the use of superior sires for improved production traits, reducing the number of herd bulls necessary, increasing the genetic merit of replacement females, and decreasing the chances of transmitting a venereal disease. Beef producers have been reluctant to implement AI in their herds, citing reasons such as increased time and labor requirements, difficulty of AI, cost, and lack of necessary facilities.

If any of these reasons have ever prevented you from using AI, this course is for you.

This program is designed to provide a comprehensive and hands-on learning experience for producers interested in exploring the use of artificial insemination in their herds. This short course is a combination of lectures covering a wide variety of topics as well as 12 hours of chute-side work practicing the method of artificial insemination under the guidance of experience professionals.
