Michael Austin ( herd manager ) and Jim Austin ( son) recently attended the Graham School for Cattlemen in Kanas. While at the Graham School they had the opportunity to have classroom and hands on involvement with herd management. During class time they discussed diagnosing pregnancy, artifical insemination, calf delivery and herd management.
Through open discussion they learned reproductive anatomy, locating the reproductive organs, stages of pregnancy and live animal evaluation. Progressing through the week with hands on clinics they were given information on nutritional cycling of cows, proper time of insemination,handling of semen, and placement of semen in the reproductive tract. Michael and Jim are now both fully trained A.I. technicians.
The underlying message throughout the week long session of herd management is practicality and common sense. Continuing education is an investment in our herd. We strive for optimal healthy management for our herd to bring you the best cattle Austin Farm can offer.
