International Training Course on Dairy Herd Improvement by the Use of Reproductive Biotechnologies

Rationale: 
South Asia contains more vegetarians than the rest of the world combined—roughly half a billion people. Because of this, dairy herds are major sources of protein for these vegetarians. Despite the fact that South Asia is the world’s largest holder of dairy cattle and milk production, only scores of dairy farms have more than 20 cows. Basically, the dairy sector in the region is characterized by a smallholder production system of village-based production units often consisting of only one to three milking animals. 
Because of heat stress due to global warming, many milking cows cannot conceive resulting in low milk production, the pregnancy rate after artificial insemination is around 30%during summer in Taiwan. Countries in the Asia Pacific region are confronted with the same milk production challenges caused by global warming (heat stress). This has negative impact on milk production of milking cows in the human food chain. Improvement of milking cows under heat stress is an urgent task for relevant institutes supporting small-scale farmers. Recently genomics, ovum pick-up (OPU) from live cows, in vitro fertilization (IVF) and embryo transfer (ET), as a combination of technologies has been proven helpful in taking cows to the “next level” of genetic improvement.
Objectives:
  • To provide a forum for experts, practitioners, scholars and trainees in the region to share precious experiences on the most updates biotechnology in the world.
  • To share valuable information to country partners on genetic improvement of dairy cows.
