ICAR - Central Institute for Research on Cattle
Innovations play an important role in food production as well as in optimizing resource utilization by farmers. An innovation is an idea, practice or object that is perceived as new by an individual or others in a given system. The technologies/practices that are developed through research are innovations which may be new varieties of crops and plants, new breeds of livestock, new chemicals and medicines, new technique of doing things etc.
In addition, cattle draft power, dung, meat, hide and skin also contribute significantly to out put from cattle sector. Majority of the cattle population is however, non-descript capable of producing approximately 500 kg milk in lactation. With shrinking resources, there is urgent need to genetically improve and manage these animals through modern scientific tools to enhance their productivity.
CENTRAL INSTITUTE FOR RESEARCH ON CATTLE aim to improve cattle productivity in the country, through different developmental programmes. This website presents comprehensive information on this Directorate. I believe that the information available on the site will be useful to viewers including students, planners and those who are engaged in cattle rearing & development programmes.
