For day-to-day administration and smooth running of the institute, a team of scientists, technical, administrative and supporting staff, assists the Director.                                           


Director's Message:

This is a unique institute in India which is solely dedicated for overall improvement of yak husbandry and socio-economic upliftment of yak herdsmen (brokpas) who are considered as the poorest of poor pastoral nomads.This is needless to say that, this animal is integrally
associated with the culture, religion and social life of their farmers, their families and above all communities of yak rearing states. Yak is remarkable bovine species of economic importance in high hill and snow bound areas. Unlike other bovine species, the animal has been considered as multipurpose animal and provides milk, meat, fibre, hide and dung at places where arable farming, including other livestock, are unavailable.Animal power of yak is also exploited and the animals are used as pack animals and used for transportation of goods in hilly terrain and also for riding. However, unfortunately yak husbandry in India is confronted with so many challenges like indiscriminate breeding, non-availability of highland pasture and heavy grazing tax, winter feed crisis, prevalence of transboundary diseases, unscientific management practices at field level and above all climate change which leads to reduced productivity and disease threats.
