DCA will be responsible for the distribution of these high-quality bucks to 20 Elite Sub-Flocks to be created through socialization in collaboration with the National Partner at village level in Herat and Balkh provinces. Bucks from the Elite Sub-Flocks will be used for mating with females from other flocks in the villages to spread improved genetic material amongst cashmere goat populations in these areas.
