Sheep and goat rearing is a traditional occupation of small, marginal farmers and landless labourers in semiarid, arid, hilly and mountain regions of the country, inhospitable to conventional crop cultivation. Small ruminants produce food and fibre at relatively low cost from feed materials from land that often cannot be used for conventional crop production. Higher production efficiency of the two species is not only due to their ability to sustain on sparse vegetation of degraded rangeland and efficient utilization of top feed resources but also early puberty, short gestation period, high prolificacy, rapid growth rate, quality meat, milk and carpet wool production and good marketability. Small ruminants are primarily raised on grazing resources under extensive range management in different parts of the country. They are exposed to wide range of stresses under field existence mainly thermal, nutritional, exercise, management, disease, predation etc. These stresses redistribute the body resources including protein and energy at the cost of decreased growth, reproduction, production and health. In prevailing situation of progressive shrinkage of grazing resources, under nourishment, climate change reflected in low precipitation, feed and water scarcity, inhumane transportation, handling and slaughter practices, frequent drought and famine, long distance migration, poor en route shelter, early disposal of lambs and distress sale of animals are some of the important issues causing stresses on the small ruminants and affecting their productions.

Dr. S.A. Karim, Director, Central Sheep and Wool Research Institute, Avikanagar, completed his B.V.Sc. & A.H. and M.V.Sc. (Animal Nutrition) from Orissa Veterinary College Bhubneshwar in the year of 1974 and 1976, respectively. He was awarded University Gold Medal for securing first position in M.V.Sc.(AN). He completed his Ph.D. degree in Animal Nutrition from National Dairy Research Institute, Karnal in the year of 1991. He joined Agriculture Research Service(ARS) in 1978. He has more than 26 year of research experience in the filed of ruminant nutrition with specialization in nutrition-environment interaction, growth maximization of lambs, range managed small ruminants’ nutrition and carcass evaluation. He has published 140 research papers, 45 invited papers, 15 popular articles and 200 contributory papers. He has guided several Ph.D. students. He is a member of several important academic bodies and as Board of Studies, Academic council, Research Advisory committee. Dr. Anil Joshi, joined Industrial Toxicology Research Centre (ITRC), Lucknow in 1979 as a CSIR Research Fellow and was awarded Ph.D. in 1984 in Biochemistry from Lucknow University for his work done at ITRC. He did his Post Doctoral Research work in ITRC from 1984 to 1986. He joined Central Sheep and Wool Research Institute, Avikanagar as Scientist S-1 (Animal Biochemistry) in 1986 and is Principal Scientist since July 2006. His significant research achievements include development of protocols for ram semen freezing, validation of computer-aided semen analysis for ram semen evaluation during various stages of freezing, freezing of ovine embryos and was associated in development of laparoscope aided and transcervical artificial insemination techniques for using frozen ram semen. His group is credited to report for the first time research findings on the work done on prolific sheep and ram lambs of which 2 were published in “The Veterinary Record” and 1 each in “Animal Reproduction Science” and “Tropical Animal Health and Production”. He is twice recipient of ICAR Team Award for Outstanding Research for the Biennium 1997-98 and 2003-04 and also got ISCA, NAAS, ISSRF and ISSGPU awards for best paper presentation. He has published 81 papers in referred National and International and has contributed several papers in International and National Seminars. He is the Life Member of 7 Scientific Societies and the current Editor of the Indian Journal of Small Ruminants.
