NDDB Dairy Services facilitated training of AI technicians to provide AI services to producers of the Paayas, Maahi and Saahaj Milk Producer Companies.
Under the Pilot AI model for Viable Delivery Services (PAID) projects implemented by the MPCs, 1300 Mobile AI technicians (MAITs) were deployed in about 11, 700 villages to provide doorstep AI services adhering to the prescribed standard operating procedures. As of 31st March, 2019, a total of about 2.5 million AIs were carried out despite the challenges of low awareness for AI amongst buffalo farmers and resistance on the part of farmers to get their animals ear tagged.
