We are delighted to share the news that JK Bovagenix, an initiative of JK Trust, has this week announced the birth of three healthy cattle calves, all produced from frozen IVF embryos created using IVF Bioscience media. The calves were born on the 8 January 2017, and are all of the Tharparkar beed of Rajasthan. Two further calves, produced from fresh IVF embryos, were born on the 23 and 24 December 2016.
This breakthrough is being described as a turning point in India’s growth story, revolutionising the production of genetically superior Indigenous breeds and leading to a multi-fold increase in milk output. The results are also strategically significant, as the Government of India’s Rashtriya Gokul Mission aims to address the pressing need for enhanced milk productivity of the various indigenous breeds of India.
