Abstract

The arid and semi-arid tropical climates of India are endowed with vast diversity of non-prolific sheep breeds. The Garole × Malpura sheep has been evolved in a semi-arid tropical environment by introgression of FecB gene via artificial insemination of Malpura ewes using diluted semen of prolific...

Abstract

The Garole is a prolific, but less well known small Indian sheep breed found in the hot and humid Sunderban region of West Bengal. A recent finding based on DNA tests provides new evidence that the major gene for prolifacy (FecB) in Booroola Merino strain was introduced from the Garole sheep. The...

Abstract

Artificial insemination enables sheep farmers to introduce superior germplasm and upgrade the potential of low producing native animals. A fertility trial, using diluted Awassi rams semen, was conducted during July 1996 in two flocks of Malpura and Kheri breeds under field condition. The animals...
