Students will gain hands-on experience with bovine rectal palpation, rectal ultrasonography, trans-cervical catheterizaton, and embryo flushing. Course will provide didactic instruction on assisted reproduction techniques followed by lab time to practice discussed topics. Students will be required to travel to lab locations.

Areas in curriculum where bovine palpation was formerly taught and practiced have been cut. Students leaving our program do not feel prepared to palpate cows, and we are expecting them to get all of their training on externships where the practitioner may or may not be able to facilitate their practice.
