Banca delle Risorse Genetiche Animali Lombarde


LABank was built in 2008 in the framework of the project RISORSE BIOLOGICHE E TECNOLOGIE INNOVATIVE PER LO SVILUPPO SOSTENIBILE DEL SISTEMA AGRO-ALIMENTARE, cofinanced by Regione Lombardia and CNR. The primary site is at IBBA UOS in Lodi at the Parco Tecnologico Padano. Storage includes cryopreserved semen, and blood & hair for DNA extraction. In 2013, stored semen doses included: 1222 collected from 5 Varzese bulls, 282 from 10 Brianzola rams, 127 from 10 Frisa Valtellinese bucks, 740 from 11 Verzaschese bucks, and 130 from 10 Orobica bucks, for a total of 2501 doses collected from 46 donors. According to FAO Guidelines, semen doses of each donor was split into 2 tanks for security reasons.
