Animal Genetics & Breeding

Deaprtment of Animal Genetics & Breeding

        Department was established in the year 1952 and there after, MVSc and PhD programmes were started in the years 1956 and 1962, respectively. Since inception, Department has executed several research projects. The Non-Plan schemes of U.P. State Govt. are Artificial Insemination Scheme, Heritability of Economic Characters of Cattle and Buffaloes, Statistical Study of Livestock Production, Management and Intensification of Research in Animal Husbandry and Veterinary Science, Scheme for Progeny Testing of Hariana and Murrah bulls for Genetic Improvement of Cattle and Buffaloes in U.P. and Poultry Research Scheme at Chakgangaria, Lucknow.

    ICAR and U.P. State Govt also funded some other research schemes from time to time. Salient among them were All India Coordinated Research Project on Poultry for Eggs, Reciprocal Recurrent Selection in Poultry, Characterization and Conservation of Bhadawari buffalo and Conservation and multiplication of Bhadawari buffalo through Cryo-preservation of semen.

    Based on Progeny Testing Scheme, selected superior Hariana and Murrah bulls were supplied to Animal Husbandry Department which played significant role in increasing milk production in the State. A new semen dilutor (named as D2) was evolved for the preservation of Hariana and Murrah semen. The level of exotic inheritance in crossbreds for their adaptability in Indian conditions was proposed as 62.5% in 1958, which was recognized all over the country. Under the AICRP and ICAR research schemes on poultry for eggs, three strains of White Leghorn were reported to be suitable in this agro-climatic condition.

        Under crossbreeding scheme of U.P. State, HFx Hariana crossbred cows produced at Dairy Farm were supplied in the surrounding villages to increase milk production. Under NATP on “Characterization and Conservation of Bhadawari Buffalo”, twenty-six bull calves were selected and maintained in the department. After observing the semen quality, frozen semen was supplied to Semen Bank of NBAGR, Karnal and 24 bulls were supplied to the Department of Animal Husbandry for the conservation of Bhadawari buffaloes in its native tract.

   Biostatistics and Computer Application Section of the Department takes care of teaching of all the courses and also assist and guide postgraduate students in research data analysis. Periodically, depending on the requirement, Computer Literacy Programmes for University and wards of weaker section of the employees are also arranged from time to time.
