Our core operation is Frozen Semen production & Sales, where we provide high genetic merit bulls’ frozen semen. HGM bulls of cattle breeds-Holstein Friesian, Jersey, HF & JY Crossbreds, Amritmahal, Gir, Hallikar, Haryana, Kangayam, Kankarej, Khillar, Ongole, Ponganur, Rathi, Red Sindhi, Sahiwal, Tharparkar, Vechur, as well as buffalo breeds- Jaffarabadi, Murrah, Pandharpuri, are available at our station.
Since its inception, we have made significant progress and a variety of reproductive technologies have become commonplace, with notable effects. Superior gains with frozen semen are accomplished by keeping high genetic merit bulls at the semen stations and providing quality AI semen doses. There is a greater breadth of surveillance for health, biosecurity, resource efficiency, and production maximization.
As a professionally managed semen station that closely complies with the Minimum Standards Protocols (MSP), we have necessary bio-security procedures in place to produce disease-free semen, which is the foundation of any genetic enhancement program. As a result, we manufacture quality frozen semen to assure improved fertility and faster genetic advancement.
Artificial insemination has long been utilized as a strategy for quick genetic improvement of the country’s cow stock. In the current context, where the country is working to close the demand-supply gap for milk, expanded use of AI is critical to improving the productivity of dairy animals in the country. NDDB Dairy Services Semen Stations have played an important role in steering our country to evolve as the top milk-producing nation in the world.
Breeding operations in the country are constrained by operational restrictions, therefore semen production stations must equip themselves with the technology to analyze and process semen so that there is little deterioration in its intrinsic fertility. The cost of producing a high-quality product includes both financial and human resources. As a result, the time has come to create more efficient and effective structures that focus on providing value to the product while minimizing expenses.
Given the foregoing, our semen production facility attempts to establish and constantly revalidate semen collecting and processing processes that use acceptable viability parameters that are compatible with guidelines. Furthermore, our in-house quality audit and successful application of quality management systems contribute to continuous product and service improvement, resulting in increased customer satisfaction. This guarantees that a high-quality product is continually developed and supplied via careful planning and execution.
During 2021-22, the station produced 13.5 million semen doses and sold 19.2 million semen doses, which are the highest for any semen station in the country. Semen doses were also exported to countries like Vietnam, United Arab Emirates, Nepal, Egypt, Kenya and Bangladesh.
Over the last four decades, Sabarmati Ashram Gaushala has remained the major supplier of quality frozen semen doses of indigenous breeds in the country. The semen doses are supplied to agencies involved in improvement and multiplication of these breeds. During 2021-22, the organization produced and sold around 33.4 lakh semen doses of different indigenous breeds.
The semen station has been awarded with the Government of India’s Certificate of Merit for being country’s Grade “A” semen station during 2017-18 evaluations.
