Eau Claire, Wis. (March 29, 2018) – Realityworks, Inc., announces a new simulator for agriculture education: the Bovine Breeder™ artificial insemination simulator. This new learning aid joins a line of agriculture training tools aimed at engaging today’s students in agriculture career exploration, train them on core concepts and help them develop skills they can use to fill job openings in the field of agriculture.
“Although interest in agriculture education and local FFA organizations is growing, fewer and fewer students are coming to these programs ‘from the farm,’” said Realityworks RealCareer Product Manager Jamey McIntosh. “Now more than ever, agriculture instructors need realistic, engaging tools they can use in the classroom to help students develop targeted job skills.”
The Bovine Breeder is a unique learning aid that students can use to practice proper techniques for artificial insemination (AI), a required standard within many agriculture programs across the country. This tabletop-size simulator allows students to see inside a cow’s reproductive tract and identify reproductive system landmarks, learn correct cervix manipulation and AI gun positioning, and help them learn the correct way to insert and deliver semen – core concepts in animal science and agribusiness classes. The simulator includes curriculum that focuses on cow and bull reproductive systems plus the basics of AI and proper AI techniques.
Reproductive technology is an increasingly important part of the animal breeding industry, and the demand for workers skilled in artificial insemination will continue to rise. The Bovine Breeder will enable educators to more conveniently teach core concepts and help students develop valuable job skills.
“Agriculture educators have made clear their need for affordable, realistic tools that provide the feedback and interactivity their students 21st Century students crave,” said Timm Boettcher, Realityworks President & CEO. “Simulators like this one help instructors create interactive learning environments where students can explore career pathways and engage in active learning opportunities.”
Realityworks continues to look for other product development opportunities in areas with a skills gap to engage today’s students in needed career fields.
