Abstract
The study was conducted to examine the perception of artificial insemination among Fulani cattle rearers
in Zuru Local Government Area of Kebbi State, Nigeria. Proportionate random sampling was used for the study. A
total of one hundred and seven (107) Fulani cattle rearers constitute the sample size for the study. The instrument
used for data collection was interview scheduled and data was collected in 2012. The data collected were analysed
using descriptive statistics; five (5) points’ likert scale was used to determine the perception of Fulani cattle rearers
on artificial insemination and Pearson Product Moment Correlation was used to establish the relationship between
perception of Fulani cattle rearers on artificial insemination and some of their personal characteristics (Age,
Educational level and Sex). The study revealed that the majority (71.02%) of the Fulani cattle rearers were male and
42% were within the age range of 31 – 35 years. Majority (53.27%) of the Fulani cattle rearers had no education.
The results further revealed that 57.01% of the Fulani cattle rearers are aware of artificial insemination. The result
also revealed that majority (54.1%) of the cattle rearers perceived artificial insemination unfavourably. However,
age, educational level and sex of Fulani cattle rearers were not significantly related to their perception on artificial
insemination. Therefore, more awareness should be created among Fulani cattle rearers to stimulate their
involvement in artificial insemination. Demonstration centres should be established within and around the Fulani
cattle rearers settlements for them to see, appreciate and seeks for assistance on artificial insemination
