• Refresher course on Artificial Insemination Techniques conducted successfully

    10- 23 January, Samtse: Two weeks long refresher course for Artificial Insemination (AI) Technicians was held at Yoseltse, Samtse for 21 Livestock staff of western dzongkhags and government farms. AI is a modern technique applied in Bhutan to artificially breed cattle with quality semen. For higher fertility, the Artificial Insemination Technician (AIT) has to be highly skilled so as to deposit the live semen on the right place (on the female reproductive tract) at the right time. Hence, skills of AIT have to be upgraded regularly to keep abreast with the latest and improved techniques.

    Thus, the refresher course provided an opportunity for field staff to get hands on training on thawing of semen, proper loading of AI gun, application of right techniques for Artificial Insemination, preservation of frozen semen and handling of Liquid Nitrogen which is required to preserve and keep the semen viable.
