Hands-on cattle clinics for students and cattle producers
Each year, SFA holds two artificial insemination clinics. One clinic is aimed at cattle producers, and one is aimed at high school students interested in agriculture and cattle production. Both workshops cover topics such as bovine reproduction and anatomy, fertility, health and nutrition, plus a hands-on demonstration.
Clinic for cattle producers
This clinic is open to any cattle producer and is taught by Dr. Erin Brown, professor of animal science at SFA. Brown holds a doctorate in beef cattle nutrition from Texas A&M, and her primary research and teaching interest is beef cattle nutrition.
Cost for the clinic is $500, which includes supplies and lunch. The clinic takes place at SFA’s Todd Agricultural Research Center. Space is limited, and attendees are encouraged to register in advance.
Clinic for high school students
The high school artificial insemination clinic is a service learning project organized and run by SFA agriculture students. Cost for the high school clinic is $35, which includes supplies and enrollment is limited to high school students only.
