Artificial Insemination (AI)
Artificial insemination is the most affordable and convenient biotechnological tool for dissemination of improved genetics at farmers’ doorstep.

Muktaa MPC has identified local rural youths from the area, trained them and deployed them as Mobile AI Technicians (MAITs) to provide quality doorstep Artificial Insemination (AI) services in its operational area to improve the productivity of milch animals, reduced cost of production and maximize the return the farmers.
To create awareness among members about importance of scientific breeding, nutrition and healthcare services offered by Muktaa MPC, various extension activities such as DBAB Camp, RBP, Calf rallies, Infertility Camps, distribution of extension material are done at regular intervals.
