Washington State Swine Artificial Insemination School

June 28 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm

The Washington Pork Produces and Washington State University (WSU) Department of Animal Science and Extension is offering a one-day, hands-on workshop on the various aspects of swine artificial insemination.  The workshop will take place at the Grant County Fairgrounds in Moses Lake on Friday, June 28, 2024, from 9:30 am until 4:00 pm.  Information is available from WSU Extension Specialist, Dr. Kim Davenport, or 509.335.4124, or Sarah Maki Smith, or 509.754.2011, Ext. 4363.  Full class details are on the WSU Animal Agriculture website and online registration is available at the WSU Animal Ag website, or online credit card purchases can be made at Brown Paper Ticket.

Successful management of the breeding herd begins with successful breeding practices.  Many factors, animal, human, and environmental, impact the success of the sow to breed, litter size, and the sow’s ability to rebreed.  Dr. Tim Safranski, University of Missouri State Swine Breeding Specialist, will provide training concerning the anatomy and physiology of reproduction in sows, estrus detection, estrus synchronization, semen purchasing & handling, and breeding.  These practices will help you improve reproductive performance and the genetics of your swine herd.
