Artificial Insemination (AI) Technique was the first great biotechnology applied to improve reproduction and genetics of farm animals. It has had an enormous impact world wide in many species, particularly in dairy animals. In India to improve the local breeds for milk production, thereby India achieved the number one position in Milk Production in the world (110 MT) Accurate artificial insemination technique requires concentration, attention to detail, a clear understanding of female reproductive anatomy and physiology. This is an art even laymen can perform, provided one should undergo proper training and trainee should work with numerous reproductive organs which are brought from slaughter house, and receive considerable practice inseminating a variety of live cows and buffaloes. This study was conducted at KMF Training Centre, Dharwad. The 30 days duration programme divided into 4 sessions: theory session, hands-on session, practical session and field session. After training it was assessed for conception rate, calf born rate and treatment done by the trainee. Some trainee needs Refresher Training. These trainees are working in the Milk Co.op. Society and doing wonderful job in the dairy battle field of artificial insemination without frontier’s. “Everyone who is successful must have dreamt of something.”
