Course Details

The course is designed to help you establish the foundations of scanning sheep. To become fully competent, you will require regular daily practice on your or your clients’ farms.

We would work with any make of scanners. Provided it is battery operated, we would encourage you to bring your own sector scanner with your goggles or screen. Otherwise, we can supply a Reproscan model for you to practice on the day.

We cover the whole of the UK and Ireland, with venues near you. Your course will be delivered by not simply a teacher, but by a Masterclass Trainer who has nearly 30 years’ experience as a vet, foot trimmer and a CowSignals Master trainer.
