About



Department of Animal Breeding and Genetics was established in 1970 with the inception of Faculty of Animal Husbandry and Veterinary Sciences at the then Sindh Agriculture College, Tando Jam. The department focuses on teaching of breeding strategies for improvement of farm animal production, to improve the availability of better quality milk, meat, mutton and wool etc. for the people of Pakistan. The department undertakes research on breeding problems under local conditions and suggests the future strategies for genetic improvement of existing germplasm; to meet the requirements for ever increasing human population as well as for export. The main goal is to increase per animal productivity keeping in view the stress on land for human food and diminishing availability for fodder cultivation.
