Pakistan has best buffalo breed: UVAS vice chancellor

Vice-Chancellor of the University of Veterinary and Animal Sciences (UVAS) Professor Dr Talat Naseer Pasha has said that despite an improper mechanism of semen production in the country and around 3.5 million poor semen doses, Pakistan has the best buffalo breed producing 67 per cent milk from them. Talking to APP on Sunday, he said the private sector was producing 3.5 million semen doses against government’s 2.5 million doses. 

He deplored that it was very alarming that the quality of bulls being used for semen collection was inferior as the private sector was just doing the business without covering the aspect of animal genetics. There is no mechanism of check of the quality of semen produced by the private sector and there should be a system under which selected bulls should be used for semen collection, he added.
