Sessions are 10 a.m.-4 p.m. each day at the Fremont County Fairgrounds. The days are Thursday, Nov. 13, Monday, Nov. 17, Thursday, Nov. 20, and Monday, Nov. 24, said Ron Cunningham, extension educator and an instructor for the school. Other main instructors are beef specialist ScottLake and extension educator Kellie Chichester.

Students can receive college credit through the Central Wyoming College agriculture department, said Cunningham. He said students should attend at least three of the four days. Each day has a different lesson.

Sessions cover reproduction, physiology, anatomy, heat synchronization, reproductive and pregnancy diseases, nutrition and hands-on AI practice every day.
