Fertility camp

  • As cow and buffalo are major contributor in milk production, the productivity of the state cattle and buffalo breeds has a direct impact on milk production. The productivity of milch animals is based on three parameters, 1. Animal genetic pool, 2. Their sexual as well as overall physical health and 3. Their nutrition (Nutritive value of feed).
  • Sexual health has a direct impact to the conception potential of animals, which decreases their productivity. This ultimately increases the cost of milk production. In addition, non-productive or less productive livestock shares natural and manmade resources equally competing with productive livestock for forage, water, land and labor. Ultimately to maximize the productivity, the limited resources cannot be used optimally. This afterall is the wastage of national wealth.
  • Underdevelopment of the genital organs, inherited defects in the genital organs, uterine infection, decrease in sexual efficiency or temporary infertility due to inadequate nutrition, decrease in the functionality of the hormonal glands etc have adverse effects on sexual potential.
  • For this, fertility camps are organized in the state under NPCBB by Gujarat Livestock Development Board. Under which medicines are provided for the camps organized by field AI centers under Dept. of Animal Husbandry and District milk co-operative unions. working under Animal Husbandry department.
