Pilot model for viable door-step AI delivery services
It is targeted to raise the percentage of breedable animals inseminated from the current level of about 25% to 35% by the end of NDP I. To inseminate 35% of breedable animals, the total number of AIs performed annually will have to be increased from the current level of 50 million to 90 million by the end of NDP I.
All activities related to expansion of AI Delivery services will be supported under the National Project on Cattle and Buffalo Breeding (NPCBB), GoI. However, a pilot model for viable doorstep AI delivery services following Standard Operating Procedures through a professional service provider will be supported under NDP I. It is visualised that the Pilot Project will be self sustainable in five years time and will continue to provide AI services after five years without any external financial assistance. The Pilot Project envisages inducting of about 3000 trained mobile AI Technicians and carrying out annually some 4 million AIs in a financially self sustainable manner by the end of NDP I.
