ABOUT THE TRAINING
This short course is designed to provide participants with both theoretical background and significant opportunity for hands-on practice needed to facilitate the adoption of artificial insemination into their goat breeding programs. With the use of improved transcervical AI breeding techniques for goats, pregnancy rates comparable to those routinely achieved for AI in cattle are now possible.
This short course will consist of an initial series of lectures on Monday morning coupled with four hands-on practice sessions (Monday pm, Tuesday am & pm, and Wednesday am). Topics will include anatomy & physiology of the female reproductive tract, estrous synchronization, ovulation synchronization, AI breeding techniques (standard and improved) and the use of frozen semen for AI.
