Other Activities

1.-GERMOPLASM BANK

This consists of genetic material: embryos, spermatozoids and other cells of interest from bovine breeds in danger of extinction.

2.-RECOGIDA DE EMBRIONES

In order to obtain a bank of embryos of Castile and León Region autochthonous breeds in danger of extinction.

3.-LIVESTOCK FARMING AND TESTING FUTURE STUD ANIMALS WITH GOOD MEAT PRODUCTION

  • Extensive farming of breeds destined to producing meat, of interest to this Region, some in danger of extinction: Pardo de Montaña, Bociblanca variety Avileña and Sayaguesa.
  • Testing future stud animals by examining meat production, to support the programme for selecting different breeds.

4.-ELECTROEJACULATION

A technique for extracting semen, used on bulls which do not accept an artificial vagina, are difficult to handle or have a physical disability which does not allow them to mount, but are stud animals of genetic interest.

It is carried out on a support, especially designed by the León CENSYRA for this purpose.

 

5.-SEMEN COLLECTION USING AN ARTIFICIAL VAGINA FOR BULLS DIFFICULT TO HANDLE

Given the bulls’ character, this is carried out using a collection tube especially designed by the León CENSYRA, which allows semen to be extracted using an artificial vagina.

It has to be pointed out that this system has enabled us to collect semen from Morucha breed bulls, which had not previously been possible.

6.-GENOTYPING LABORATORY

Filiation analysis (paternity-maternity tests) in cattle and sheep, in addition to identification of genetic resistance-susceptibility to ovine Scrapie.
