Field AI delivery system to enhance dairy and beef production in SNNPRS

  1. 1. Field AI delivery system to enhance dairy and beef production in SNNPRS<br />Desta Gabriel<br />IPMS Workshop on Alternatives for Improving Field AI Delivery System to Enhance Beef and Dairy Production in Ethiopia<br />ILRI, Addis Ababa, 24-25 August 2011 <br />
  2. 2. Opportunity/Potential<br /><ul><li>Huge cattle Population </li></ul> CSA :- total population 10,543,129 /21% from the national/<br />out of these 4,358,111 are cow & heifer /with the age of 3 – 10 year/<br /><ul><li>Liquid nitrogen producing plants in the region,</li></ul> /two/<br /><ul><li>Around 300 trained AI technicians,
  3. 3. In some areas relatively better awareness of the farmers to accept the AI service /but not in all cases/ </li></li></ul><li><ul><li>Relatively better animal health service facility,</li></ul>/One Animal health expert to three PA`s in most cases/<br /><ul><li>High demand for animal products,/Nationally & Internationally/</li></ul>(due to Economical growth & related cases)<br /><ul><li>Current policies & strategies seeking for the overall development of the sector,</li></ul>/Organization structure/<br /><ul><li>Most of the areas are suitable to implement AI activity/Including some pastoralist areas/</li></li></ul><li>What we Achieve to date with these Potential; <br />
  4. 4. Achievements in the past two Years<br />
  5. 5. Main Bottleneck`s<br /><ul><li>Lack of appropriate input provision strategy,</li></ul>/specially liquid nitrogen & semen/<br /><ul><li>Frequent transfer of AI technicians to seek better alternatives, </li></ul> ( 300 trained but 159 are available on job)<br /><ul><li>No constant supply of insemination equipment,
  6. 6. Low conception rate of the inseminated cow/heifer, </li></ul> ( conception rate is averagely around 3)<br /><ul><li>Absent of incentives for the Inseminators</li></li></ul><li><ul><li>Low Performance of AI technicians,
  7. 7. One technician inseminate on average 170 – 210 cow per year which is very low
  8. 8. Absence of logistic to facilitate field AI service mostly</li></ul> the service was delivered at stationed level,<br />/lack of motorcycle/<br /><ul><li>Lack of refreshment training to AI technicians,</li></ul> /specially for the last 3 Years/<br /><ul><li>Less attention was given to animal feed,</li></li></ul><li><ul><li>Less focus on appropriate & timely data collection,
  9. 9. Technical gap to select the appropriate breed </li></ul>(Mostly focus on HF)<br /><ul><li>Marketing related problems,
  10. 10. Lack of coordination among experts,
  11. 11. livestock production , AI technicians, Animal</li></ul> health experts, Development Agents, Input<br /> providers, ….<br /><ul><li>Technicians were assigned to perform out of their responsibility,/on other activities/</li></li></ul><li>2004 E.c. Plan<br />
  12. 12. Strategies to Achieve the plan<br /><ul><li>Timely & properly distribution of input /liquid nitrogen & semen …/, </li></ul> to facilitate this :-<br /> purchase of two truck with necessary equipments,<br /> designing of two appropriate distribution roots & <br /> monthly distribution of input takes among the producer &<br /> the AI technician at regular bases<br />
  13. 13. <ul><li>Provision of motorbike,</li></ul> two motorbike to each woreda /totally 230 motorbike/,<br /> so the service transform to rotational bases, <br /> This improve the performance of Experts & the service<br /> will be delivered at a minimum distance <br /> /that was an advantageous for the farmers/<br /><ul><li>Training of 80 additional AI technician`s
  14. 14. Refreshment training
  15. 15. Facilitating AI technician training center
  16. 16. Improving the reporting mechanism /training, integrating the input distribution with report collection/ </li></li></ul><li>Thank You!!<br />
