Chief Minister Jagan Mohan Reddy's vision is aimed at improving the quality and number of Punganur animals and revive them to their original status known as “Poor Man’s Cow”. 

Mission Punganur exhibits the commitment of the government to the revival of the famous Punganur cattle rich in nutritious milk and has proven to be an essential and effective tool to practice organic farming. This project will be implemented in the next five years at the University Pulivendula research centre. The primary objectives of the project are:

1. Conservation and propagation of the Pungganur cattle.

2. Rapid multiplication of the superior females through Embryo transfer technology.

Another important thing in the project is an efficient use of low genetic merit cows as a surrogate and producing elite offsprings and Skill pool development in IVF-ET for extensive application in the field.

Through the implementation of the Mission Punganur, a three to four-fold increase in the reproductive efficiency of cows can be expected. As against the production of 2.5 offsprings in 5 years at an average from each cow under normal circumstances, this project envisages production of 8.5 offsprings from each cow in 5 years. A total of 1690 offspring is expected to be produced from 200 superior donors.

Moreover, the Andhra Pradesh government had issued a sanction of 69.36 crores to the Andhra Pradesh centre for advanced research on livestock limited, Pulivendula for the establishment of Punganur cattle production using IVF technology under “ Mission Pungganur Research project”.

Further speaking on the topic of Animal Husbandry Director - Dr Amarendra Kumar said the Andhra Pradesh government under the direction of chief minister Jagan Mohan Reddy sanctioned the mission pungganur project, with the project costing 69 crores to revive the nearly extinct pungganur breed. Pungganur breed milk has nutritive and medicinal values also, previously our state used to have a large number of pungganur animals but now the number has reduced to some hundreds. So keeping the view of this creamy situation our honourable CM Jagan Mohan Reddy has directed to take up the propagation and conservation of the Pungganur breed. Earlier people used to call Pungganur breed the Poor Man’s cow and now it is almost getting extinct but this mission Pungganur will revive the glory of pungganur breed and we are hopeful that soon in AP we will have a large number of pungganur cows in our state.

It is under the leadership of the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, Jagan Mohan Reddy that various programs such as YSR Rythu Bharosa, providing  Nine hours free supply of electricity to farmers, and the Price stabilization fund has been implemented successfully, apart from setting up over ten thousand RBKs around the state which are presently acting as one-stop centres for farmers. Through schemes like this, the Andhra Pradesh government has not only improved the quality of farm produce but also the quality of farmer’s life.
