Upgrading of local animals.
Another strategy used to increase the number of dairy animals is through upgrading. It is done by artificially inseminating local cattle with 100% purebred Holstein-Friesian semen. Calves born from upgrading programs are distributed to new farmers interested in dairying. Despite the longer waiting period to earn money from upgrading, other farmers, LGUs and private organizations still prefer such approach to dairying because of the readily available native animals in their localities.
