The Regional Livestock Development Centre, Zhemgang organised 12 days orientation program (Hands on training) on the Infertility management and Estrus Synchronisation in cattle from 5-16 May 2015. The training has been organised to orient field Veterinarians and breeding focal persons of the Dzongkhags of East-central region, with technical support from the National Dairy Development Centre, Yusipang, resourced by Dr. Lham Tshering, the Animal Reproduction Specialist.
The training intensified and created wider awareness on estrus synchronisation and infertility management in the region, with scope of expansion of the CHBBP program in potential areas. With the successful completion of the training program, all the participants expressed their fulfillment by acquiring appropriate skills, and committed to play pivotal role as a focal person in their respective Dzongkhags in infertility management. The participants will also be carrying out the estrus synchronisation programs in their respective Dzongkhags.
