The breeding project aims at providing systematic breeding services to cattle and buffaloes of the state to improve their genetic potentiality and productivity. It has adopted various approaches like production of quality semen, strengthening and expansion of AI network, provision of breeding services at the doorstep of the farmers, sexual health control measures, creating awareness among the farmers through trainings, shows and rallies, refresher training for the professionals etc. This has resulted higher transformation of existing cattle and buffalo resources in term of their genetic makeup and increase in total production, thereby substantially contributing to the state GDP.

  • Selection of Elite Cows basing on their milk yield.
  • Organization of Infertility treatment camps for sexual health control measures.
  • Synchronization of oestrus among cattle and buffaloes
  • Refreshing the knowledge of the professionals on animal breeding and reproduction through training and exposure.
  • Production of Crossbred bulls by inseminating the elite cows with proven bull sire semen.
  • Conduct Progeny Testing Programme in field conditions for evaluation of the breeding bulls donating semen at FSB, Cuttack.
  • Strengthening of Bull mother farms of state.
  • Physical Characterization of Native cattle and buffalo germplasms of Orissa.
  • Conservation and improvement of native germplasms through selective breeding.
  • Implementation of Livestock Insurance Scheme.
  • Partnering with agencies like BAIF, KLDB, NDDB and other external agencies for livestock development of the state.
