 Vision, Mission, Goal and Objectives

: To be a World Class centre of excellence for advanced research on livestock.

: To find solutions to problems of livestock health and production and transfer the technologies. 
:To improve animal health and productivity for the benefit of farmers.


1. To conserve indigenous germplasm. Freezing and export of  Ongole cattle embryos and other germplasm may be undertaken.

2. To study introduction of genes for better production,       reproduction, disease resistance and adaptation. Patenting of      such genes may be explored. 

3. To develop feed and fodder resources and improve feed   conversion ratio for better productivity.

4. To improve animal reproduction through new technologies. 

5. To study disease monitoring, surveillance and mapping,           zoonoses and economic impact.

6. To develop cost-effective vaccines and disease diagnostic tools.  Such vaccines and diagnostic tools may be a revenue earning  source for the project besides helping the farmers.

 7.  To study environmental and industrial pollutants, mycotoxins,  drug and pesticide residues etc for food safety and quality       assurance as per international norms. Testing and certification   of milk, meat and eggs and their products for export purpose        may be undertaken.  Contract testing of drugs etc on              laboratory animals may be undertaken.

8. To make use of GIS satellite imaging for studying livestock       distribution, density, health and production, land and water     management and environmental impact.

 9. To conduct on-farm validation and transfer the developed         technologies

10. Capacity building of field functionaries and farmers.       

11. To forge collaboration with national and international               institutions. Innovative research processes and their products at   the Centre may be patented for earning revenue

12. To create adequate trained personnel in the country in the       specialized areas of veterinary science such as nanobiology. 

       Advanced training courses may also be offered at international level by making use of the state of the art laboratories and  other facilities at the Centre.
