The finer details

Our highly experienced instructors will help you understand how to carry out a simple assessment on whether a ewe is pregnant or not.

The organisers' combined experience brings in over 50 years knowledge and images from the UK, Canada, US, New Zealand and Europe.

The course's key fundamentals will cover how sheep ultrasound examinations are carried out in the UK and abroad.

The training day is an intense one, with combination of theory on how the ultrasound works, understanding images. This is then followed-up by extensive practice on sheep.

Finally provided the scanner is battery operated, we would encourage you to bring your own sector scanner with your goggles or screen. Otherwise, we can supply a model for you to practice on the day.
