- a) PASHUDHAN SANJIVANI :
Ø An animal Wellness Programme; encompassing provision of Animal Health cards (‘Nakul Swasthya Patra’) along with UID identification of animals in milk and a National Data Base.
Ø Under the scheme 8.5 crore animals in milk will be identified using UID and their data will uploaded in the INAPH data base.
Ø This will play crucial role in control of spread of animal diseases. This will also lead to increase in trade of livestock and livestock products.
- b) ADVANCED BREEDING TECHNOLOGY:
Ø Assisted Reproductive Technique to improve availability of disease free female bovines through of sex sorted semen technology.
Ø Under the scheme 50 embryo transfer technology labs and In Vitro Fertilization labs care will be established.
Ø This will lead to exponential increase in milk production and productivity of animals in an exponential manner.
- c) NATIONAL BOVINE GENOMIC CENTER FOR INDIGENOUS BREEDS(NBGC-IB):
Ø In developed dairy countries genomic selection is used to increase milk production and productivity for attaining faster genetic gain.
Ø In order to increase milk production and productivity of indigenous cattle, a National Bovine Genomic Centre will be established in the country.
Ø By using genomic selection indigenous breeds can be made viable within few generations.
Ø This center will play crucial role in identification of disease free High genetic merit bulls.
- d) E-PASHUDHAN HAAT PORTAL:
Ø At present there is no authentic market for bovine germplasm in the form of semen, embryos, male & female calves; heifers and adult bovines. Farmers depend on middlemen for sale and purchase of quality germplasm.
Ø Breed wise information on availability of bovine germplasm is not available which is essential for promotion of indigenous bovine breeds.
Ø For the first time in the country under National Mission on Bovine Productivity E Pashudhan Haat portal has been developed. This portal will play important role in connecting breeders and farmers of indigenous breeds.
Ø Through this portal farmers will be aware about breed wise information on indigenous breeds. Farmers/breeders can sale animals of indigenous breeds through this portal. Information on all forms of germplasm has been uploaded on the portal. Immediately farmers can obtain benefits of the portal.
Ø This portal will give new dimensions to development and conservation of indigenous breeds as at present information on availability of germplasm of indigenous breeds is not available with the farmers.
