NARRATIVE DESCRIPTION OF PROJECT

Andhra Pradesh Government has created an independent autonomous Andhra Pradesb Livestock Development Agency to achieve the production of milk and the related products to meet the ever-growing demand, by adopting artificial insemination of local nondescript cows and buffaloes with local pure breed animals and imported exotic semen.

APLDA maintains FSBSS of such exotic variety of cows and buffaloes and pure breed of Indian cows to collect, process and preserve semen. Such semen are distributed through distribution centers (at district/ mandal level) to artificial insemination centers (including mobile centers) and Gopalamitras (private artificial insemination practitioners) who are located at village level. The entire farmer population is covered through such institutions at village level. In an effort to streamline this mammoth activity and maintain information about the progress of this Artificial Insemination (AI) programme, APLDA has decided to go in for computerization upto district level.
