In 2016, after a year of planning, ABS made the first-ever import of live bulls into India.

This followed a milestone permit from the Indian government, which enabled us to introduce 13 sires identified as having the best genetics for India into our local operations, based on assessment through the Indian Dairy Index ('IDI'), a framework we developed specifically for customers within the country. The 13 bulls were transported just over 14,000 km from the US to our Brahma bull stud, a joint venture with BG Chitale. They are now the leading sires within India, enhancing the availability of high-quality genetics in the world’s largest dairy market.
