CLSU 1998-04: Towards Better Understanding of the Dissemination and Utilization of AI-PD Technology for Carabao Upgrading Program: A Case Study

This study aimed to gain understanding of the requisites of AI-PD technology dissemination and utilization by looking into the processes involved in the project's field level implementation. The respondents were 91 farmers, and who were IA-PD beneficiaries, 3 bull users and 6 implementors. Data were gathered using interview schedule. Some data were gathered from secondary sources of the agencies concerned. Appropriate statistical tools were used to analyze the data, namely; percentages, means, weighted means, Pearson's Product Moment of Correlation. Results revealed that influential to the adoption of AI.PD technology were the technicians, research and development workers, LGU staff, relatives, and friends. Also, the government institutions such as CLSU, LODs and DA-Region 3 were contributory to the farmers' utilization of the technology which might be due to good performance of their mandated roles. A variety of methods were used by the implementors in the dissemination of AI-PD technology. The farmers were reached through individual and group methods, and through a print medium. The PCC at CLSU, DA Region 3 and LGUs worked collaboratively for the success of the program. The agencies concerned gave motivational support to farmer beneficiaries of AI-PD in the form of technical assistance/services- prizes to the producers of bigger calves than the native ones, and buying the crossbreds produced. The implementor respondents agreed that the training seminar-workshop on AI enabled them to gain knowledge and improved their skills on AI. However, the staff involved in AI-PD should not only be skilled or well-trained but should also possess the needed character traits like being punctual, dedicated to the service and most of all, able to relate with people at all levels. The respondents also agreed that the leaders exhibited democratic and participative leadership style. Majority (60.4%) of the farmer-respondents had 67-100 percent successful impregnation of their artificially inseminated carabaos. However, only 53.8 percent of the respondents had 67-100 percent successful calf deliveries. The results show that all successful impregnation did not resort to successful calf delivery due to discharges or abortion. Of the independent variables, income and perception on AI had significant relationship with the degree of success of AI-PD dissemination and utilization. This indicates that the degree of success in AI-PD dissemination and utilization increases as the income increases. Also, the degree of success in AI-PD dissemination/utilization is higher as they agree on the benefits derived from AI, and how AI should be implemented.
