Goat gives birth to kids through artificial insemination in Marayur
Marayur (Idukki): For the first time in Anchunadu here, a goat gave birth to two kids through artificial insemination. Though cows had given birth through artificial insemination here, a goat is bred through this technique for the first time.
The experiment was successfully conducted by veterinary surgeon Dr Biju K G in Marayur. A 2-year-old goat was inseminated via artificial method 150 days ago. The goat delivered a pair of male and female kids on Friday.
As the artificial insemination method was proved successful, the Department of Animal Husbandry expects that more people in the area will be attracted to goat farming.
