Such a method was developed using genetic improvement
India’s cattle owners will now benefit more with this
Now a cow can give birth to a baby till 14
Increase production of livestock and milk
New Delhi: New genetic technology is now going to benefit
Indian cattle ranchers. Genetic improvements have been going on
for a long time in all organisms.
Now the livestock technology company Tropical Animal Genetics
(TAG) has developed a new technology through which cows can
be milked by breeding them and producing two and a half times
more milk calf.
The company is also trying to develop such new technology with
the inspiration and support of the National Dairy Development
Board (NDDB) to increase the rate of pregnant cow by 60-70
percent. A calf produced with the help of genetics and
biotechnology provides two and a half times more milk than a
Founder and Managing Director of TAG, Dr. Praveen Kinney said
that technically a cow can be pregnant up to the age of 14 years.
Through their patented technique, Tropical Bovine Genetics
(TBG), cows can be pregnant up to the age of 14 and be fed milk
for almost their entire lives. He said that with the help of the
technique of imbryo transplantation in cows, only female imbryo
or sexed imbryo can be displaced.
It has also been named Sexted Embrao Technique.
This new genetic technique ensures the birth of a calf which
becomes a cow that gives more milk in the future. A cow is about
15 years old.
Factory set up in Sabarmati, Gujarat
Dr. Kinney informed that his company, established in the year
2015, has set up an embryonic brun factory at Sabarmati Ashram
(Gaushala) in Gujarat through which there is a provision for
industrial production of imbryo. From there, the imbryo can be
produced and used in the cows for imbryo transplantation or the
cows in the cowshed can be transplanted into them to produce by
This embryo production unit has a capacity of producing five
thousand imbryo which is planned to be taken up to a capacity
of 20000 in future. Gaushala is being conceptualized with the
latest technology, which has yielded very encouraging results.
He said that due to poor genetics, milk production from cows is
reduced, but the cow calf conceived with their new genetic
technology gives milk more than two and a half times that of its
He said that the cow which gives calf and calf after giving birth to
one thousand liters of milk, can give up to four thousand liters of
milk of a cow impregnated with their technology.
Dr. Kinney explained that in the factory set up through them, only
imbryo technique. If a cow is also a calf, it too is reared instead of
being left open to the conception of cows and they also become a
source of income for the farmers.
The calves born with this technique are also of advanced quality
through which good quality calves are born from cows that are
New genetic technology is a help in farming
Inaccessible and unopposed cows can also be pregnant with this
technique, which will also prevent damage to farmers’ crops from
Dr. Kinney said that the objective of his company is to provide
cows of right genetics to the milk producing farmers in the country
so that the farmers can achieve prosperous and happy life.
He explained that his pioneering innovations in this field are
strategic and technical partnerships with Transovagenetics Inc. of
America, Roslin Institute-University of Edinburgh, Indian Institute
of Science, Indian Institute of Technology Madras and National
Center for Biological Sciences.
He said that he plans to set up his own laboratories in North India
and South India so that more and more quantity of brun can be
made and the cows are pregnant and farmers can be benefited.
Brun production in large numbers will also reduce their price.
He also wants to assist the gaushalas and groups of farmers in
producing brun through their special technique so that the farmers
can get the maximum benefit from this important livestock by
having the cows themselves. He is also running rural
entrepreneurship programs so that by providing vocational
technical training, jobs can be created. Dr. Kinney said that the
government is constantly striving for the development of farmers.
He said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said that the
development of the country is dependent on the progress of
Keeping in mind the increase in the income of livestock owners
He said that the mission of TAG is to generate new sources of
income in the Indian agriculture sector as per the government’s
plan. Under this, through new techniques, the genetics of cows are
to improve milk production.
The company is confident that its technology will be successful
and will prove to be a milestone in increasing farmers’ income.
