The Madhya Pradesh government has launched a nationwide Artificial Insemination (AI) programme to improve the reproductive health of livestock and enhance the productivity of livestock. The programme is being implemented with the help of the Department of Animal Husbandry, Dairying and Fisheries, the Government of India and the National Dairy Development Board. Through this programme, AI technicians will be trained at the district level and AI services will be provided to the farmers. The programme will focus on the use of quality semen and improved scientific techniques for better reproductive performance. The programme also aims to reduce the cost of artificial insemination for the farmers. The programme is expected to help the farmers to improve their income and the overall economic condition of the state.
- Increased fertility rate: The programme will help to increase the fertility rate by providing access to artificial insemination services. This will help to improve the fertility rate of cows, buffaloes, goats and sheep in the state.
- Improved quality of livestock: The programme will help to improve the quality of livestock through the use of improved semen from superior bulls. This will help to improve the production of milk and meat as well as the quality of the animals.
- Improved animal health: Artificial insemination will help to improve the health of animals by reducing the spread of diseases. This will help to reduce the number of deaths of animals due to disease.
