be a World Class centre of excellence for advanced research on livestock.
find solutions to problems of livestock health and production
and transfer the technologies.
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.
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
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
building of field functionaries and farmers.
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.
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.
