Artificial insemination has greatly increased the production of milk, eggs and meat

The various advantages of the artificial insemination method of breeding animals (reproducing animals) are given below-

1) Artificial insemination makes the selective breeding of animals, having desired characteristics, easier. This is because, semen from any desired bull can be used to impregnate any chosen cow, to get recruited type of progeny (offspring). Thus, artificial insemination ensure good quality progeny. 2) Artificial insemination method of breeding animals is economical (cheaper) because semen from a single bull can be used to impregnate several thousand cows (about 3000 cows) at distant places. There is no need to transport bulls to various places. The semen is reserved, packed and sent for artificial insemination of cows. 3) Artificial insemination method of breeding animals is better than the natural method of mating, because the high quality semen is available all the time in preserved form, whereas a high quality bull may not be available all the time at all the places. 4) Artificial insemination method of breeding animals is more reliable than the natural method of breeding animals by mating. 5) By providing high yielding animals, artificial insemination has greatly increased the production of milk, eggs and meat.

Breeding of cows and buffaloes

In our country, there are 32 indigenous breeds (desi breeds) of cows and 7 indigenous breeds of buffaloes, but all of them do not yield good amount milk. Some of them are good only for doing work, whereas other yield more milk. Some of the good milk giving indigenous (desi) breeds of cows are; Sahiwal, Gir, Red Sindhi, Haryana, and Tharparkar. And some of the important desi breeds of buffaloes are; Nagpuri, Jaffarabadi, Mehsana, Nili - Ravi, and Surti. To increase the bulls from high milk yielding exotic breeds (foreign) breeds) to get new and better breeds of cow which yield more milk, and are more suited to our environment. The high – milk yielding breeds of cow and developed in India through cross – breeding are :-

a) karan swiss. b) friesian – sahiwal. c) karan – fries. d)jersey. 6) holstein – friesian

Holstein – Friesian cow produces about 3200 litres of milk, and Karan – Fries cow gives about 3500 litres of milk during their lactation period of about about 300 days, which comes to more than ten litres per day! A new, improved, high milk yielding breed of buffalo is Murrah. The `Murrah' buffalo yields about 200 litres of milk during its lactation period, whereas the maximum milk produced by the best indigenous buffaloes is about 1500 litres. The Murrah breeds of bulls are in great demand for upgrading the local milch buffaloes.
