Back then, farmers had little knowledge about this technology; some even brought sterile animals for estrus.
Last week (beginning of November), a similar campaign was organized in the same district. More than a thousand cows were brought by local farmers to the temporary synchronization site. Now, the farmer’s interest for this technology regardless of gender and age was observed to be incredible.
AI technicians from the livestock agency of the districts and region tested 934 cows on the first day alone.
To appreciate this work, the district administration office awarded a certificate of appreciation to the LIVES project and to Azage Tegegne for introducing and demonstrating this useful technology in the district.
In the meantime, the Amhara region livestock development and promotion agency is scaling this estrus synchronization technology.
