The Breeding Policy

Intensive and structured breeding programmes taken up in the State during the last 3 & 1/2 decades have considerably increased the milk production. The accepted breeding policy of the State envisages crossbreeding, limiting the exotic inheritance to around 50% followed by selection and inter se mating as illustrated in the figure.

 





The new 'composite breed' of cattle evolved by crossing nondescript cattle with exotic donor breeds (Brown Swiss Jersey and HF) limiting the exotic inheritance to 50% was formally named Sunandini
