    Today, like never before, reproductive biotechnology allows us to make rapid changes in the genetics of food and fiber producing animals. Take, for example, the role of artificial insemination - one of the first reproductive biotechnologies to achieve widespread use - in enhancing milk production from the national dairy herd (Table 1).When used on a large scale, artificial insemination (AI) allowed. An estimated million rural poor people globally depend on livestock for their livelihoods. In Africa, roughly one-half of the million poor people depend on livestock which can account for 45% of household income. [3] The ‘livestock revolution’ or the rapidly increasing demand for livestock products may offer opportunities for improving their incomes and livelihoods.

      Bulls should have a breeding soundness exam 30 days before the beginning of the breeding season and only those bulls that easily pass the exam should be considered. Dr. Anderson used an example of a farmer who had purchased a high dollar bull and when that bull failed the breeding soundness exam, he persisted in re-testing the bull until he had. Basic Beef Production Guidelines; Basic Beef Production Guidelines. Be sure to have a back up plan or a "clean up" bull who can breed any cows who don't settle through the artificial breeding process. Whether you raise purebred breeding stock or commercial cattle for market, you will need to sit down prior to getting started and make.

      Breeds of cattle and buffalo in India A breed is a group of related animals with similar characters like general appearance, size, features and configuration etc. Often, breeds resemble each other with slight morphological differences, but because of constant inbreeding in one locality, independent breeds have evolved.   Estrus, or “heat”, is that period of time that occurs every days in sexually mature, nonpregnant female cattle when they are receptive to mounting activity by bulls or other cows. In beef cattle operations where artificial insemination is the means of breeding the females, the herdsman must recognize and interpret a cow’s heat signals.

group was to establish suitable criteria for the selection and breeding of cattle and buffalo in Asia. Most of the South Asian and Pacific countries have similarities in setting the policy and execution of dairy and beef cattle genetic improvement programmes.

Historically, governments have played a major role in cattle farming and breeding activities; nowadays,File Size: KB.

Breeding practices The objective is to reduce methane emissions per unit of animal products, by increasing the productivity. In the developing world, many low-producing animals could be replaced with fewer but more productive animals, thus reducing total emissions while maintaining the supply of livestock products.

artificial breeding. Much of this is shared by people involved in the industry. The challenge is to apply what is known in an efficient, cost effective and sustainable way in different cattle farming systems under varying socio-economic environments.

It is hoped that this manual will provide guidelines that will assist in that process in Size: KB. Livestock sector plays a critical role in the welfare India has rich and diverse genetic resources with of India's rural population.

It contributes 9% of GDP 37 well defined breeds of cattle and 13 breeds of and employs 8% of the labour force. This sector has buffaloes. Improving Japan's staple species of animals, we produce and supply superb breeding stocks, semen and fertilized eggs.

The main targets of improvement Dairy cattle: Increasing quantity for milk production, improvement of body structure, enhancement of life-long productivity. Bring all breedable females among cattle and buffalo under organized breeding through artificial insemination or natural service by high quality bulls within a period of 10 years.

Undertake breed improvement programme for indigenous cattle and buffaloes so as to improve the genetic makeup as well as their availability. Management Practices to Improve Breeding Efficiency: Some of the management suggestions which will tend to improve breeding efficiency of cattle are listed below.

Keep accurate breeding records of dates of heat, service and parturition. Use records in predicting the dates of heat and observe the females carefully for heat. The first scientific artificial breeding was done with dogs inby an Italian physiologist, Spallanzani, who proved that the sperm fraction of the ejaculate is the component which causes fertilisation.

Serious efforts to promote artificial insemination of cattle were made in Russia in byFile Size: 2MB. The breeding program may use either artificial insemination (AI) or natural service. AI has been commercially available for >60 yr; it is widely used in dairy cattle but is used much less in beef cattle because of handling and labor costs.

If your objective is to raise registered cattle and supply breeding animals to other cattle producers, it may be necessary to make large capital investments in purebred stock. Development of a registered herd means that both the sire and dam must be purebred and registered with the same national breed association on the stud book.

Breeding beef cattle is relatively easy as compared to breeding dairy cattle. Because breeding beef cattle is all about getting cows bred for producing calves to sale either for replacements or beef.

And you don't have to think much about many things such as genetic improvement, increasing milk production etc. sole responsibility of the breed association and there are different guidelines for each association.

Cattle Breeding Policy. Improvement in non-descriptive and low producing cattle, of course with the availability of feed and health cover the bulk has to be obtained from Holstein and Jersey and to be stabilized around 50 per cent. The buffalo is an important livestock resource in several countries of South Asia and the Mediterranean regions.

However, reproductive efficiency is compromised due to known problems of biological and management origins, such as lack of animal selection and poor by:. In order to keep a close watch on the performance of the exotic cattle under Indian conditions and to exercise quality control on the bulls used for crossbreeding, it was considered desirable to open Herd Book for the two exotic breeds of cattle viz.

Breeding plans for cattle and buffalo should aim to meet the quantitative and qualitative demands of milk and meat in the country. From a practical standpoint, traits with a measurable or at least readily recognizable economic value are generally to be given the most economic traits are typically those that affect either the income.
