Can next generation assisted reproductive technologies enhance livestock productivity and farm income in India?

India decided to double farmers’ income by the year 2022. With just two years more to go for achieving the goal, it is quite clear that achievement of this feat will be quite difficult without adoption and enhancement of dairy farming, which has a CAGR of 19.6 per cent.

Close to 85% of the farmers in India are marginal and small but own only 45 per cent of the land while possessing 75 per cent of the cattle. Therefore, for a landless person, dairying is one of the best occupations. Solution to the current agrarian distress rests in the support to the livestock and dairy sectors.

The invited panel will discuss the role and strategies of assisted reproductive technologies in enhancing livestock productivity and farmers income.

Panelists:

  • Dr. Manmohan S. Chauhan, Director, National Dairy Research Institute (NDRI), Karnal, Haryana, India
  • Dr. Inderjeet Singh, Vice Chancellor, Guru Angad Dev Veterinary & Animal Sciences University (GADVASU), Ludhiana, Punjab, India
