Provision of Superior Breeding Animals

Brief Description

Due to very limited number of breeding animals, this service is provided only on a case-to-case basis and on a “first come, first serve” basis subject to availability of animals. Priority is given to interested parties who have funds to purchase and provide the requirements of maintaining the breeding animals. Other means are via the soft loan (Bull Loan Program and Dairy Buffalo Module under Modified “Paiwi” Scheme).
