Under the dairying project ‘Advanced Breeding Technology’, Assisted Reproductive Technique to improve availability of disease free female bovines through sex sorted semen technology is being pursued.

Under the scheme 50 embryo transfer technology labs and In Vitro Fertilization labs care will be established.

This will lead to exponential increase in milk production and productivity of animals in an exponential manner.

Under Pashudhan Sanjivani scheme, 8.5 crore animals in milk will be identified using UID and their data will uploaded in the INAPH data base.
