Objectives

i. Increase of per animal productivity through propagation of high genetic merit male germplasm (boar semen) through artificial insemination technique

ii. Reduce inbreeding

iii. Reduce ingress of sexually transmitted diseases

Salient Feature

Unlike large ruminants, frozen semen technology is not successful for pig. Hence artificial insemination in pig is mostly done with liquid boar semen with a success rate of 60% when the semen is processed scientifically and hygienically. Presently, technologies are available to prolong the life of liquid semen.

To propagate the high genetic merit boar semen covering large numbers of sow, the semen needs to be processed to develop large numbers of doses which will remain active for longer duration. Therefore, assistance will be provided to establish semen processing lab at the government pig farm to produce high quality liquid boar semen for artificial insemination.
