Abstract:
The use of sexed semen in dairy animals in India is increased. However, high cost and low fertility had limited the use of this tool. The study was conducted to assess the knowledge level of dairy farmers about the sex-sorted semen. A total of 68 farmers were selected randomly in the Thiruvallur district. The primary data was collected through a well-structured pre-tested interview schedule. Data revealed that a cent per cent of the farmers had knowledge of symptoms of heat signs and time of insemination and pregnancy diagnosis. None of the farmers was not willing to rear male calves. One-half of the farmers (47.06%) had knowledge about sex semen and none of them practiced sexed semen technology in their dairy animals.
