The ICAR-National Institute of Animal Nutrition and Physiology (ICAR-NIANP) was established on 24th November 1995 at Bangalore under the aegis of Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR), New Delhi. The Institute is mandated to conduct basic and fundamental research with respect to animal feed resource management using physiological-nutritional approaches to improve animal productivity and profitability of livestock farmers.
The institute's new campus was inaugurated by the Honourable Union Minister for Agriculture, Shri Rajnath Singhji on 13th August 2003.
With the dawn of New Year 2018, I wish to extend warm greetings to all of you for a Very Happy, Healthy and Productive year throughout.
In November 2017, our Institute completed twenty two years of its fruitful existence by serving the Nation with its significant contributions in the field of Animal Nutrition and Physiology. The Institute scientists have received lot of accolades and recognitions for their work catering to the mandate and objectives of the organization, I am aware that it is not enough to gloss over and be complacent. As the cliché goes, we have miles to go before we rest.
During 2017, the institute was awarded ICAR Best Annual Report by the Hon. Union Minister for Agriculture and Farmer Welfare, Shri Radha Mohan Singhji. The Institute also received the ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management System Certificate.
The Institute in association with Indian Poultry Science Association (IPSA) organized the XXXIV Annual Poultry Science Conference (IPSACON 2017) from 28-30th November 2017 at NIMHANS Convention Centre, Bengaluru. The theme of the conference was “Innovations for safe and sustainable poultry production”. More than 350 delegates representing research, academia and industry participated in this conference.
