The Dzongkhag Livestock sector is conducting a week long AI refresher course for livestock extension staff of Paro Dzongkhag. The main objective of the refresher course is to update the knowledge and skills of the field staff on AI technology. It has been observed that most of the livestock extension staff who were trained on AI during their Diploma/CNR degree program were not practicing AI due to lack of confidence on AI technology, and those staff who are performing AI in the field are mostly senior certificate holders who have not received any updates on the technology. Therefore, such a refresher course is expected to boost the confidence of these two categories of staff and improve service delivery on AI technology. This program will be followed by Contract Heifer and Bull Production expansion and estrous synchronisation programs in the geogs from 15 to 28 May 2017.
The refresher course is funded by the Dzongkhag HRD Capacity Development Fund and technically supported by the National Dairy Research Centre and the Regional Livestock Development Centre, DoL, MoAF.
