Abstract

India has achieved a distinction of being largest milk producing country in the world due to effective implementation of cross-breeding programme by using artificial insemination technology. The Infectious bovine rhinotracheitis (IBR) virus is associated with reproductive disorders thereby resulting into abortion leading to reduced breeding efficiency of the animals. The virus is shed through semen in male and ability of virus to go into latency makes it difficult to detect it in semen. Ability of virus to survive in frozen semen makes the control of the virus difficult. All these factors lead to affect economy of dairy industry
