Most of the people in developing countries are suffering from starvation or malnutrition of protein and energy. Due to an ever-increasing global human population, there is a dire need to produce good quality animal protein in a large amount to fulfill the daily requirements of these essential items of food. The protein malnutrition is more acute and wide spread than energy malnutrition. Pakistan, along with other developing countries, is also facing the problem of acute protein malnutrition.
The need, for high quality educational institutes especially professional in the country, has been anticipated since long. The modern societies are knowledge-based and it is inconceivable to achieve socio-economic development or nation building without trained-manpower in scientific and technological fields, particularly in the areas of emerging sciences; especially in the field of Veterinary and Animal Sciences.
Shaheed Benazir Bhutto University of Veterinary and Animal Sciences (SBBUVAS), Sakrand is also the only rural based Veterinary University of Sindh province exclusively engaged in imparting quality education in the fields of Veterinary and Animal sciences. Our goal is to change the world through education and prepare our students, to make a difference in the lives of others.
Livestock has an important role in promoting socio-economic development in rural areas. The sector meets the domestic demand of milk, meat and eggs. Nearly 8 million families are involved in livestock raising and deriving more than 35 percent income from livestock production activities. It is a source of cash income, providing a vital and often the only source of income for the rural and playing an important role in poverty alleviation and foreign exchange earnings.
Livestock sector contributed 58.9 percent to the agriculture value added and 11.1 percent to the overall GDP compared to 58.9 percent and 11.3 percent during the corresponding period last year, respectively.
Simultaneously; Poultry sector is one of the most vibrant segments of livestock sector in Pakistan. Poultry today has been a balancing force to keep check on the prices of mutton and beef. Poultry meat production for the year 2017-18 was to the tune of 1.39 million tons, which contributed 32.7 percent of the total meat (4.3 million tons) production in the country. During 2017-18, the poultry has contributed 1.4 percent in GDP, while its contribution in agriculture and livestock value added stood at 7.5 percent and 12.7 percent, respectively.
Let us work together to make this Faculty & University a role model for other public and private sector institutions in the country to follow.
I wish the students best of luck and success in all their future endeavors.
