‘JK Trust is one of the largest NGOs working towards “Cattle Breed Improvement Programme" in various states of the country for the last 20 years. The initiative has immensely benefitted millions of families residing mostly in remote and tribal villages of the country.’
Taking its existing work forward, the Trust has introduced “Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART)” in Bovines to undertake a new breed improvement programme for Indigenous Cattle Breeds of the country. This is the first of its kind initiative conceptualized & developed for establishing pregnancies from the IVF embryos of selected Indigenous cattle breeds.
This is also in line with the objectives of the Government of India's “Rashtriya Gokul Mission”, aimed at preserving and propagating the indigenous breeds of cattle such as Gir (Gujarat), Sahiwal (Punjab/Haryana), Tharparkar (Rajasthan), Ongole & Punganur (A.P.), Khillar (Maharashtra) & others.
At present, JK Trust has two state‐of‐the‐art ET (Embryo Transfer) and IVF (In‐Vitro Fertilization) Laboratories known as “Dr. Vijaypat Singhania Centre of Excellence for Assisted Reproductive Technologies in Livestock” at Gopalnagar, near Bilaspur, in Chhattisgarh and “Dr. Vijaypat Singhania Centre of Excellence for Assisted Reproductive Technologies in Livestock”at Vadgaon‐Rasai near Pune, Maharashtra.
Additionally, JK BovaGenix is reaching out to farmers through 4 Mobile Cattle ET & IVF Labs. These vans are taking this new & advanced Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) to the door steps of farmers.
