Govt enacts Bovine Breeding Act

Chandigarh, June 12

The state government has enacted the Haryana Bovine Breeding Act, 2018, for genetic improvement of bovines by regulating bovine breeding activities, including use of breeding bulls for production, processing, storage, sale and distribution of bovine semen, and artificial insemination and any other breeding activity in bovines in the state.

While stating this here on Tuesday, a spokesman of the Animal Husbandry and Dairying Department said an authority would be constituted under the chairmanship of the director general of the department.

He said the authority would formulate and implement the breeding policy and services in the state and regulate the production, storage, sale and use of semen or embryos produced within or outside the state or imported from any other country.

He said for the discharge of the functions conferred on the authority under the Act, the authority or any officer empowered by it would have the power to obtain any required information from any semen station. — TNS
