Classes are held at Parks Show Cattle’s facilities located in Metamora, Michigan. We offer classes year round when we have available open cows. The class is taught in small groups of 3-4 individuals. We believe in the hands on approach, with little classroom time and the majority of the time spent practicing on real reproductive tracks as well as in real live cows. Our goal is for you to leave with the confidence and know-how to start successfully breeding cows.

Parks Show Cattle has had the honor of teaching people from all over the United States the skill of artificial inseminating cattle. Hotels are minutes from the farm in Lapeer, Michigan. Students can fly into Bishop International Airport (Flint, MI) or into Detroit Metro Aiport (Romulus, MI).
