    2. It prevents the spread of certain diseases and sterility due to genital diseases.
    3. The sperm of one high-quality bull acn be used to inseminate 20-25 cows at the same time.
    4. Cross-breeding is possible leading to high-quality calves of superior genetic merit.
    5. Specific mating is possible.
    6. A shorter calving season is possible.
    7. Old bulls can also be used effectively.
    8. Testing of progeny can be done at an early age.

    What is Doorstep AI?

    The Department of AH & Veterinary through ALDA provides scientific doorstep AI facilities for cattle, goats and pigs. This is facilitated by Field Veterinary Officers, Para Vets or by trained unemployed youth. The Department will guide the farmer through the process and provide him with assistance at every step.

    Department of AH & Veterinary, Assam has 1275 rural AI centres throughout the state to cater to the needs of dairy farmers. Each district has 30 to 70 AI centres depending upon the population of breedable bovine and area of coverage. One or two districts are grouped under each of the 15 Frozen semen Banks (FSB) in Assam. The semen collected at Barapeta FSBS is transferred to Khanapara Central FSB and Nagaon FSB and finally to field AI centres. https://livestock.assam.gov.in/frontimpotentdata/district-wise-contacts-for-ai-service
