December 21, 2020: Qatar Airways has transported a batch of 125 Holstein-Friesian bulls from Germany, imported for breeding purposes, to Chennai and was taken to the animal quarantine centre in Pallikaranai.
The centre’s frozen semen production station is in Alamathi near Red Hills, where the bulls will be taken once they complete 45 days quarantine.

The consignment was handled by AAI Cargo Logistics and Allied Services Company (AAICLAS).

One hundred and five bulls of the same breed were transported in October.

A senior official from the animal husbandry department said the bulls are imported to breed native species such as Sahiwal, Tharparkar, Gir, and Sindhi for offsprings that yield more milk. The National Dairy Development Board has been importing bulls for a few years. The semen samples will be collected twice a week for three years using special equipment.
