Starting today 02 Sept,2020, and for the next fortnight, NAGRC & DB will be carrying out community breeding in the Western Uganda district of Kiruhura.
The community breeding concept is our concerted effort to help livestock farmers improve production and productivity of their animals leading to improved livelihood of poor livestock farmers.
Our technical team will be supporting nucleus livestock farmers with inputs and breeding materials as well as train them in improved animal husbandry practices.
Livestock breeding services have over the years been a challenge to farmers due to inadequate Artificial Insemination (AI) services, farmers’ poor perception of AI, low conception rates, low access to AI imputs and high quality genetics.
It’s for this reason that NAGRC & DB launched this community breeding programme in June 2019.
