Executive Summary: Aegipan Animal Biocare Private Limited is not a simple goat rearing & sailing organization. It is such an organization that is working for preservation of good germplasm of Black Bengal Goats, development of our poor country men and also regular research for the Socio economic development of our poor farmers through animal husbandry. Black Bengal breed of goat is well known for its excellent meat quality all over Eastern India and there is very heavy demand for the meat from this breed. However, castration of male kids at an earlier age to get higher growth rate, to avoid the development goaty odour in the meat resulted in non availability of sufficient numbers of breeding males in village areas. The farmers are not able to breed the females in right time which ultimately leads to poor conception rate or less number of kids produced. Continuous use of same breeding males and its progenies over a longer period in the same locality leads to inbreeding depression in the growth rate and other productive performances. It is uneconomical to rear adult uncastrated breeding bucks (males) in each and every small farmer who maintains only 2 to 3 goats, as the body weight gain in the bucks after reaching adult age is low, adult bucks are rough in behaviour, difficult to control and maintain in a limited space available. The meat from uncastrated adult buck has unpleasant flavour with less tenderness leads to poor demand in the market, fetches low price. Thus the farmers castrate the male kids at an early age so as to get good market price. This resulted in less number of males available for breeding in the villages. Since 2012 we have started research on this tropic & introduced Artificial Insemination In Bengal Goats in all over the Bengal as lab to land approach. By providing pure Black Bengal Frozen Semen within few years we can improve the inbreeding problem and simultaneously it also helps in generating income for the unemployed rural youths. As many women are coming forward with a favorable response and enthusiasm – women empowerment is generated leading to a sustainable livelihood.
Market need: Reason for using our product/service. 1. As stated above, Inbreeding problems give rise to unhealthy breed with inadequate weight.
