Dear Viewers,

It is my privilege and honour to be associated with the Central Sheep and Wool Research Institute (CSWRI), Avikanagar since last more than 25 years. CSWRI is a premier institution under Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR), New Delhi, mandated to conduct basic and applied research on sheep production, health, utilization, training and transfer of technologies to the beneficiaries.

Institute is presently handling 33 institute projects and 26 externally funded projects from CWDB, DBT, DST etc in frontier areas of research on prolific sheep, disease resistance, worm management, disease diagnostics, nutritional manipulation, value addition, climate change, reproduction etc for enhancing sheep productivity for livelihood and economic sustenance of poor farmers in different harsh climatic zones of the country. Important technologies have been developed in respect of animal health, nutrition and reproduction and their application in the field showed body weight gain and meat yield of the progeny, higher greasy fleece yield and reduction in mortality rate. The supply of elite ram improved the production and economy of poor and marginal farmers.

It would be my commitment to take the institute to greater heights by involving entire scientific, technical and administrative staff and creating research environment.

It is my pleasure to extend the facilities of website of the institute to scientific community, entrepreneur, industries, farmers and all others involved in sheep and wool sectors.  We would be happy to receive suggestions if any for improving its usefulness to stakeholders and all browsers.
