NATIONAL DAIRY PLAN PHASE – I PROGENY TESTING PROJECT

HIGH GENETIC MERIT CROSSBRED JERSEY BULL PRODUCTION PROGRAMME

In order to achieve the desired genetic progress in milk production, productivity of Milch animals are to be increased, for which High Genetic Merit bulls (HGM) are required. Production of HGM disease free bulls is a crucial first step for any scientifically planned breed improvement programme. Progeny Testing (PT) is an internationally established practice to produce HGM bulls. It is a scientifically proven process for evaluating and selecting bulls of the best genetic merit to produce the next generation of genetically improved animals.
