In a joint initiative, ACC and BAIF supported by Adani Foundation empowered rural livelihood with advanced artificial insemination techniques to enhance the livestock productivity
The introduction of sorted semen enhanced the productivity and profitability of livestock farming in Aragawan village of Chhattisgarh.
Ahmedabad, 7th November 2023: ACC, the cement and building material company of the diversified Adani Group, in a joint initiative with BAIF has unveiled advanced artificial insemination techniques to bolster livestock improvement in rural communities. The initiative aims to provide support to farmers who rely on livestock as their primary source of income.
With the introduction of improved livestock reproduction techniques, ACC-BAIF initiative intends to address the challenges faced by the farmers in Aragawan village and empower them. This has led to a transformation of the village and its residents. One such success story that has emerged from there is that of Mrs. Prema Pal, a resident of Aragawan village. She encountered difficulties in conceiving her buffalo despite numerous attempts in using conventional insemination techniques. They had previously relied on traditional semen for artificial insemination, which only offered a 50% chance of a female calf. Mrs. Prema Pal, however, achieved success in inseminating the buffalo through the advanced technology of Sorted Semen, which made possible through the collaborative efforts of ACC and BAIF supported by Adani Foundation.
Sorted semen technology is an advanced reproductive technique used in livestock agriculture to enhance the chances of generating offspring of a specific gender, typically female. This innovative technique ensures a higher probability of female calf births, heralding a new era for farmers and fortifying the dairy industry as the female calves reach breeding readiness within 18-24 months and results in a milk yield of 20 to 25 litres per day.
ACC and Adani Foundation are committed towards supporting local communities and promoting sustainable agricultural practices. Through the introduction of sorted semen, it aims to revolutionise the livestock sector and help farmers to improve their livelihoods and secure a better future for themselves and their families.
