The main objective of the study was to investigate the effectiveness of artificial insemination and the reproductive performance of dairy cows managed under smallholder farms in Zambia. The cooperatives were Kalomo (n=217), Choma (n=262), Magoye (n=132) and Monze (n=214) in Southern Province; Palabana (n=112) in Lusaka Province; Chingola (n=32), Kitwe (n=48) and Mufulira (n… CONTINUE READING
