Frozen Semen doses from seven Sirohi bucks purchased from Rajasthan and stationed at  BAIF Central Research Station Uruli Kanchan were  supplied to 18 locations in rural area for  assessing  the success of  A.I. under field conditions.. The information on  2636 A.I. was available. Followup was 55.65 %. The overall conception rate (based on kidding) in goats was observed to be 26.04 %. Regionwise   conception rate varied from 21.06 to 38.46 %. By and large the season did not affect the conception rate in goats. Although more inseminations were recorded during rainy season, the goats conceived round the year. Paritywise  conception rate ranged from 22.17 to 33.71 %.  Although it increased  from first to fifth  lactations, the differences were not   significant. The effect of buck on  conception rate in goats was important. Four packages with different sperm concentrations (30,60,90 and 120 million sperms per dose) were used.The average conception rate varied from 23.23 % to 27.27%. While no firm conclusions could be drawn on the package used because of  smaller number of observations in each class, the data indicated possibility of achieving  conceptions even with reduced number of sperms than  with 120 million sperms per dose. Further work is recommended. It was concluded that besides strengthening the training of inseminators, investigations on  semen freezing technique and sperm dose packing are needed to be undertaken to improve the conception rate  in field.
