Determinants of use of breeding technologies in small to medium scale dairy cattle farms in Senegal

Download to read offline

Milk production in Senegal is dominated by the use of indigenous breeds with low milk production potential (around 0.7 – 1.5 litres per cow per day). Artificial insemination (AI) is being used to create indigenous and exotic cross-bred cattle with higher milk potential. To date, however, the use of AI and cross-bred or exotic cattle remains low. This is a poster about a study to identify household level characteristics that could have influenced the uptake of AI and use of cross-bred or exotic cattle breeds in the last 5 years.
