ABSTRACT

In the present study the evaluation of the adoption status of artificial insemination (A.I.) technology in 5 villages of Mymensingh district in Bangladesh. Evidence showed that the proportion of households rearing cattle was 47.17%. Forty four percent of those households have adopted the A.I. technology. The proportion of cross-bred cattle population was about 34%. It varied among farm sizes, herd sizes and categories. The distribution of cattle holdings over the households was less unequal than the distribution of land holdings; but there was very little difference between the distribution of cattle and cross-bred cattle holdings.
