About J K Trust
The J.K. Trust Gram Vikas Yojana – The Genesis
India’s premier corporate, Raymond Limited established a sheep breeding farm in Dhule (Maharashtra) for research in sheep management, nutrition, health and reproduction (1970).
Raymond was the first organization in India to introduce Embryo Transfer in Sheep (1977).
A well equipped 'Raymond Embryo Research Centre' (RERC) for cattle was set up during 1983, after shifting the operations to Gopalnagar near Bilaspur in today’s Chhattisgarh state.
This centre has gained national recognition due to the pioneering and extensive work in the field of Embryo Transfer in cattle.
The J. K. Trust Gram Vikas Yojana (JKTGVY) was launched in 1997 to facilitate the transfer of technical expertise gained over three decades to the farmers more effectively..
