Welcome to Animal Nutrition Society of India
Animal Nutrition Society of India (ANSI) came into existence under the umbrella of Lord Venkateshwara at Tirupati during Animal Nutrition Research Worker’s Conference held at the College of Veterinary and Animal Husbandry, APAU, in 1982. Thereafter, the society grew exponentially over the years. It has assumed the role of an apex body for the animal nutrition research and its application on the farm/ field and feed industry, with regard to feeding of animals and laying of feeding standards for the different categories of livestock. Today, the society has about 900 plus members coming from National Research Institutes, State Agricultural Universities, Feed Industries, Cooperatives, Corporate bodies, NGO’s, Private Institutions and abroad.
ANSI functions closely with scientists, farmers, feed industries and is trying to bring these three functionaries at one forum to address the problems of feeding practices, feed resource generation and more importantly, the shortage of quality feeds for livestock. It has a motivational role for both, the scientists as well as the feed manufacturers to create newer innovations in feeds and feeding of animals.
ANSI has emerged as a platform for the assimilation and dissemination of knowledge on all aspects of animal nutrition, animal feeding and to focus attention on various problems confronted by farmers and feed manufacturers regarding feeds and feeding. The society has been taking up the issues of evaluation, maintenance and monitoring of feed quality and is making all out efforts to focus attention on these aspects, as the feed quality is directly related to animal health, productivity and animal product quality.
