Presentation of CAPRIROM and its activities. Minutes of the National Romanian goat breeders conference, hold in Botosani in June 2011.

CAPRIROM is a Romanian SME association, beneficiary of FLOCK-REPROD. They work closely with the Veterinary Faculty of Constanta OVIDIUS.
Since 1993, the professional association CAPRIROM groups all the goat breeders and other organisations involved in the development of technical of economic activities related to goat production and health in Romania. The main objectives of CAPRIROM are:

  • To co-interest goat breeders in order to increase the number of animals, the production and the reproduction performances, with the purpose of gaining more income,
  • To apply technical measures regarding the genetic improvement by using reproduction biotechnologies, especially artificial insemination,
  • To offer informational and technical support in order to diversify the exploitation of goat productions;
  • To support the goat breeders for goat imports and to achieve feasibility studies for the necessary documentations in various projects;
  • To support the breeders in supplying activities with feed, medicines and consumables specific to goats;
  • To organize round tables, conferences, communications and publications regarding the promotion of the most recent scientific and practical information in the field of goat breeding, and the promotion of goat productions with the purpose of developing the population’s taste for the consumption of goat products such as meat, milk and other dairy products;
  • To ensure intermediary services and announcements among the members of the association regarding the exchange or selling of males and females for reproduction;
  • To found zonal branches of CAPRIROM in all the country counties, especially where a large number of goats are bred;
  • To defend the rights and interests of goat breeders in regard to various governmental or non-governmental organisms.

 Within FLOCK-REPROD, CAPRIROM works mainly on the caracterisation of the sexual activities of the local breeds, i.e. Carpathian goat and White of Banat (Work Package 1 "Practical and standardised strategies to obtain highly synchronised ovulations by the male effect"):

The annual Romanian goat breeders conference was hold on 4th June 2011 in Botosani, with about fifty university professors and specialists in goat breeding and reproduction.

During this conference, Elena Sogorescu from CAPRIROM presented the results achieved so far in European research project FLOCK-REPROD.

In order to appreciate correctly the impact of the project on the Romanian goat breeders, a survey has been conducted at the end of the presentation. (4 questions asked to 40 goat breeders). 

After analyzing the data, it turns out that:

  • 61,53% of the breeders consider that the technology proposed by FLOCK-REPROD will reduce the negative impacts of hormones on human health and environment,
  • 53,84% of the breeders think that these solutions will be more cost-effective than the use of hormones,
  • Last but not least, in case of normal ovulatory response of goats, 92,30% of the breeders affirm that they would rather use alternative FLOCK-REPROD technology (light treatment combined to the male effect) instead of hormones.

This last figure clearly shows the preference of breeders for the FLOCK technologies being developed, if they bring the same efficacy that the use of hormones: here is the main scientific challenge of the project.
