Artificial Insemination Training for Smallscale farmers in Sinazongwe, Zambia.

Most of the small scale farmers have been crying to have good and skilled AI inseminators in their communities, to this effect, SNV Netherlands Development Organisation , AgriProFocus, Agriterra and the Dairy Association of Zambia supported 20 farmers from different Dairy cooperatives to be trained as technicians in Artificial insemination (AI). The training was for 2 weeks and it took place in Sinazongwe from the 10th to the 20th of December, 2014. The training was conducted by officers from National Artificial Insemination Centre NAIC who; made sure there was full participation by the trainees and helped the farmers lagging behind to catch up with the others, especially when it came to the actual practical work of successfully inseminating the animals.
