Experts say in the last fifty years, work has been done on the health and breeding characteristics of the Norwegian Red Cattle. Breeders and experts also mainly focused on the production of Norwegian Cow. Its production in lactation is 12000 to 16000 liters. The milk of Norwegian Cattle contains 4.3% fat and 3.5% protein. Along with milk production, the calves of Norwegian Cattle are also profitable meat producers.

The characteristics of Norwegian Red Cows have also been worked on in terms of animal and hoof health as well as their ability to resist various diseases. Moreover, improved fertility and ease of calf birth are also part of this breed. The average weight of an animal of this breed is 610 kg. This breed of Norwegian Red Cows also has a good feed conversion ratio.

While speaking in the seminar, Dr. Muhammad Naeem Riaz gave a presentation on the various activities going on in the Animal Biotechnology Program. He also discussed recent advances and the application of genomics for cattle breed improvement in Pakistan. CEO of Dairy Solutions Syed Hasan Raza discussed the challenges and future prospects of Pakistan’s livestock industry.

Chief Executive Officer HRM International Mudassir Hasan highlighted the practical aspects of cattle breeding and issues related to importing foreign cattle breeds into Pakistan.

Genetic Improvement of Local Breeds in Pakistan

Speaking at the international seminar, the experts emphasized on taking steps for the conservation and genetic improvement of Sahiwal, Cholistani, Red Sindhi, Tharparkar, and other indigenous breeds. Experts said that these indigenous breeds are the national asset of Pakistan which are well adapted to the climate.

Moreover, they are resistant to diseases and can withstand problems such as lack of fodder under harsh conditions. Further experts also highlighted the importance of genetic improvement through crossbreeding of non-descript cows.

Referring to Norwegian Red Cattle, experts of Geno Global Norway said that it is the third best option for crossbreeding in Pakistan after Holstein Friesian and Jersey. This breed of Norwegian Cow can improve the genetic potential of low-yielding non-descript cows in Pakistan.

Geno Global Norway Experts said that the Norwegian Cow has good phenotypic characteristics through which it can be used as a good breed for milk and meat. An example of successful crossbreeding of these animals is in Madagascar, a hot and humid country in East Africa.
