Ron Cunningham

Learn beef cattle artificial insemination (AI) knowledge and techniques plus beef cattle management information by attending the University of Wyoming Extension AI school in Riverton.

Sessions are 10 a.m.-4 p.m. each day Nov. 26, Nov. 30, Dec. 3, and Dec. 7 in the Armory Building at the Fremont County Fairgrounds.

Students are encouraged to attend as many of the four days as possible so they can learn from the different instructors, said Ron Cunningham, UW Extension educator in Fremont County.

Students enter each day through the west entry door.  “The class is for anyone who is interested and willing to learn everything about beef cattle management and AI,” said Cunningham.

The cost is $75 for adults and $60 for high school and college students and covers all needed resources and supplies. Lunch each day is on your own. College students can also receive college credit through Central Wyoming College inRiverton.

“The AI school will be one of the few opportunities this year anywhere in Wyoming to attend a school that is jam-packed with excellent educational information on all areas of beef management and AI of beef cattle,” Cunningham said. “And, it’s very reasonably priced as compared to commercial schools.”

Instructors are Cunningham and extension beef specialist Scott Lake, an assistant professor in the Department of Animal Science in the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources. Other UW Extension personnel will be present.
