Queensland Agricultural Training Colleges

Contact us on (07) 4936 4110 for upcoming course dates and information. Please note that places are always limited. You may also be eligible to claim the course as a tax deduction – please check with your accountant.
Artificial Insemination (AI)
The four-day Artificial Insemination course is conducted several times a year at Berrigurra (near Blackwater) and Narayen Station (near Mundubbera). The course covers all aspects of Artificial Insemination training including:
- Anatomy and physiology
- Heat detection and synchronisation
- Program planning
- Semen handling
- Care, purchase and maintenance of liquid nitrogen units.
Most of the course is practical ‘hands-on’ tuition, and at the completion of the course, participants have the necessary skills to conduct AI programs on their herds. A one-day refresher course is also available to update those previously trained in AI technologies. The refresher course is usually conducted on the third day of an AI course and at the same locations.
Courses can be arranged at other locations, if there is a need and a demand, by contacting us.
