PESHAWAR, 17 November: The political administration of Frontier Region (FR) DI Khan arranged an artificial insemination training for Veterinary Assistants (VAs) at Animal Husbandry In-Service Training Institute (AHITI), Peshawar, says a press release issued by the FATA Secretariat on Tuesday. A total of 15 VAs were trained in artificial insemination.
The press release says that the political administration is undertaking various initiatives for the welfare of the local farming communities. Keeping in view the low prospects of animal productivity in the area, artificial insemination can be made available to the cattle farmers to improve productivity and profitability of their livestock.
This training is expected to help these VAs guide the local farmers in securing improved breed of cattle for enhanced milk and meat production.
