As per the mandate of NPCBB, AI facilities were introduced in 300 departmental institutions. Assam has 1275 rural AI centers throughout Assam and AI service is provided according to the need of dairy farmers at their doorstep as and when required. This subsequently extends employment to the unemployed youth of the state.
Semen is collected at Barapetta FSBS and transferred to Khanapara CFSB. From CFSB the semen is transferred to all 14 FSBs and subsequently to all the field AI centres. Need-based transfer of semen is done from 55-lt big container to 3-lt portable container, carrying of LN & FS to field and finally AI is performed at the farmer's doorstep.
There is no such eligibility criteria. Any dairy farmer who wants his cow to be bred with an improve breed can go for AI service.
The farmer has to bear the cost of Frozen Semen, i.e. Rs. 50 per straw.
The data of Frozen Semen straw and the cow (inseminated) description should be recorded.
1. The farmer must inform the exact time of initiation of heat symptoms,
2. After AI, the cow must be observed for 24 hours in captive condition.
The farmer needs to inform the nearest AI centre to perform AI.
This is a type of offline service
