According to AHDB Pork, pig semen from the UK has been used for the first time in India to improve its breeding stock and produce better quality pork.
The first ever shipment of frozen porcine semen has arrived in the country and is being used by the Punjab Government to develop a high-health nucleus of pure-bred pigs.
Government officials are keen to use British pig expertise to develop their industry and provide high quality, safe meat to its 30 million population in Punjab. A second order has already been placed.
