ABS Global has an AI Management School scheduled for December 10-12 in Athens.  It will be located at the NE Georgia Livestock Auction, 1200 Winterville Road, Athens, GA 30605.  The class will be conducted in three days, and it will include approximately 14 hours in the classroom and 10 hours in lab working with cattle.  

The School offers students the opportunity to learn AI techniques and herd management under skilled supervision.  The curriculum includes Anatomy and Reproduction; Reproduction and Fertility; Heat Detection; Nutrition; Principles of Genetics and Sire Selection; Herd Management Success; Semen Placement and Practice Insemination.  In addition, Synchronization of Beef Cattle and Planned Breeding of Dairy Heifers will be introduced.  This is a comprehensive course with sufficient cow practice to assure competence.

The registration fee is $350 for adults and $300 for college and high school students.  This covers the cost of supplies and practice cows used at the school.  This program is limited to 15 students in order to insure as much one-to-one help during practice as possible. 

If you plan to attend, please send your check for $350 to Allen Southard, 5040 Hwy. 52, Gillsville, GA 30543.

For additional info, contact Allen at 678/617-2945.
