WHAT GRADS ARE SAYING…

 

“I honestly can’t say enough good about the course! Thank you very much for such a wonderful opportunity so close to home to learn this! The course is so educational and I very much appreciated how wonderful Dr.Tom was! He was so genuine and caring. He took the time to make sure we fully understood everything.

I am really enjoying scanning our own cows, finding babies and ovaries which I thought was going to be near impossible. Tom is just amazing helping me with the questions I have. You have an amazing company to deal with. Thanks so much again! It is so amazing to be able to use this technology on our farm!

“I had so much fun over the weekend with all of you! I’m still very excited about it and can’t wait to get the machine so we can start working on herd health. It was so cool and everyone there was so awesome. I really enjoyed it.

I was super scared to go as I haven’t done much since the AI course I took over a year ago and listening to everyone’s background on the first day I was thinking man I’m in trouble. But your crew was amazing and took the time to help us all.

Thank you so much to you all! It was an amazing experience and hopefully help me on my agricultural path.”
