A TWO-DAY international symposium on Dairy Animal Reproduction with the theme “New knowledge, new practices” began at University of Veterinary and Animal Sciences (UVAS) on Monday.

Speaking on the occasion, Syed Babar Ali said such symposium was very important for genetic improvement and development of local breeds adding the livestock sector was a rapidly growing sub-sector and central to the livelihood of rural people. He said it was a reality that livestock sector based on modern reproductive techniques in our country was in infancy and there was a lot of space for modern research based inputs. He also said there was a revolutionary development in poultry industry in Pakistan.
