Kuantan cattle is one of locals which is semi extensive cultivated in Kuantan Riau watershed. According to data released by Animal Husbandry Department, in 2012, population of Kuantan cattle has been designated as a clump. However, currently its number is low so it needs a particular attention.

Therefore, team of broiler research centre at Faculty of Animal Husbandry Brawijaya University had down-streaming on its research in the form of artificial insemination using liquid cement at Animal Husbandry Departmentof Riau Province. The event which was conducted for three days (5-7/Aug/2018) was pioneered by Prof. Trinil Susilawati, Dr. Kuswati, Dr. Tri Eko Susilorini and a student at Master's Program of Animal Husbandry of Brawijaya University Nisaus Solikhah, S.Pt.

The event was initiated by a synchronization of genetic quality improvement program via artificial insemination. Prof. Trinil as the team leader mentioned that artificial insemination in Brawijaya University use frozen cement. However, its production is considered to be less efficient because not all eminent males produce spermatozoa which can be frozen. In addition, cement freezing causes the death of spermatozoa in which membrane damage is occurred. After freezing, cement should be stored in liquid Nitrogen (N2), meanwhile in most of the outer islands of Java, liquid N2 is not available.

She explained that one of reasons in using of liquid cement because of male Kuantan location is scattered and causing liquid nitrogen to run out quickyly.

In the occasion there was also a technology transfer towards staffs of Animal Husbandry Department about storage processing of liquid cement at UPT (Technical Implementation Unit) of Cattle Artificial Insemination in Department of Animal Husbandry and Animal Health Province of Riau. As well as preparation of documents to propose Indonesian national standard in Kuantan Cattle. [Nien/dta/Humas UB/trans. Denok]
