Israeli Company Helps Increase Indian Dairy Yields – Sharon Udasin (Jerusalem Post)
India has more than 100 million cows but relatively low milk yields, Saar Yavin, CEO and chief scientist at Israel’s Maxximilk Ltd., said Thursday.
Scientists at Maxximilk have produced “genetically superior” embryos to impregnate Indian heifers, which will result in cows that are genetically predisposed to withstand hot weather conditions and produce greater quantities of top-quality milk.
Maxximilk opened a production facility in the Indian state of Maharashtra last August in partnership with the Godrej Agrovet Ltd. animal feed company.
