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 and dairy buffalo module under modified “paiwi” and Dairy Buffalo Multiplier Farm schemes).


Service Standard 

Assuming animals are available and all requirements are met, coordination and other activities including processing of related documents from the day of receipt of the request to the release of breeding animals can be completed within 10.5 working days.
