A.I. AccuCheckSM Program
Continual learning and evaluation is necessary to ensure ongoing breeding program success, and that’s why GENEX developed the A.I. AccuCheckSM program. In this program, experienced GENEX professionals work with herd inseminators supplementing inadequate or outdated heat detection and A.I. training, providing tips and recommendations, and sharing new ideas and research. The end goal is a more educated and more successful herd inseminator.
More specifically, the training specialist visits the herd inseminator on a regular basis to observe and evaluate everything A.I. including equipment handling, heat detection, semen handling, A.I. technique, cleanliness, record-keeping and cattle handling. Then the training specialist provides customized recommendations for improvement through hands-on instruction as well as routine follow-up for continued personal development. It’s about identifying areas of opportunity, incorporating research-based proven techniques and applauding breeders for what they do correctly.
To learn more about having a breeding program evaluation conducted on your dairy, contact your local GENEX representative or email email@example.com. The A.I. AccuCheckSM program may not be available in all locations.
