Customer Reviews

  • Author: Ty Williams, Lubbock, TX
    “John is very helpful in walking you through each step. The hands-on approach is a great way to learn the techniques.
    Tom is a great help in getting the supplies you need. I feel like I can go home and flush cows successfully.”
  • Author: Dr. Ernesto Rodis, Phoenix,
    “The class was far superior then my expectations. If feel confident ET can be accomplished on my ranch. Dr. John Curtis is a superior and patient teacher.”
  • Author: Mickey Caywood, Lexington, OK
    “Very informative, from start to finish, lots of individual attention. Introduced to everything I needed to know. I feel I can now improve our herd in a more cost effective way. Also, as I become more efficient, I think it will open some doors for future employment.”
  • Author: ADV. Leon Vorster, Sasolburg, South Africa
    “Hands-on was achieved without a doubt. Theory alone would be totally ineffective.
    I will be able to flush my own cows and transfer with confidence. I will be able to freeze and thaw with confidence. Ease of mind to be able to have access to products and knowledge.
    I appreciated the very outstanding and supportive attitude and a willingness to share technical information, insight and knowledge.”
  • Author: Dr. Michael Storlie, Northwoods Vet Service, Wittenberg, WI
    “Everything was beneficial, most beneficial would be the ability to actually flush 4 cows. I think 3 days is the perfect length of time. I would start to lose interest if it were longer. Very in-depth course with a lot of hands on experience. Very helpful and patient instructor. I feel very comfortable flushing cows, freezing, thawing and transferring embryos. I would certainly recommend this course in the future to anyone interested in ET. Everyone at Agtech was very friendly and helpful. Nice to have smaller group of students because it felt like there was adequate one-on-one instruction.”
  • Author: Nancy Schleining, Schleining Genetics, Ault, CO
    “It was beneficial to look at specific stage of embryos to compare them to the type of embryos we want to transfer.
    3 days was long enough for the class. There isn’t much else that we need assistance on, just practice. If you really want to learn ET, Agtech will teach you everything you need to know. Dr. Curtis has had many years of experience that give added benefit to the class.
    The DVD is a great overview for the class. When you get to the class you are up to speed on things you will be practicing.”
  • Author: Todd Schafer, Music Meadow Farm, Kingfisher, OK
    “Learning to grade embryo is a huge benefit. Also proper freezing steps, proper placement of the catheter and proper placement to release embryos in the recipient were all beneficial.
    I believe 3 days is enough time to cover all areas of embryo transfer. Having AI experience made it easier for me to learn embryo transfer.
    This is an excellent way for a farm to increase their profit."
