b) Previous (Veterinary Officer L&DD 7-8-1983; Sr/Research Officer VRI 19-6-1990; CSU Australia: 1 mo)
International: Visiting Professor, Charles Sturt University, Wagga Wagga Australia (March 1 to April 1, 2010) Research on reproductive performance and health status pf of buffaloes and other food animals; preparation,
implementation and monitoring of research and development programs; assistance to IUCN, WTO, SMEDA, FAO, etc., in livestock development; Assistance to Inland universities in postgraduate research program; Member Editorial Board (1990-2005).
Extension: Semen processing, management and semen quality of bulls, farm management and staff supervision,
veterinary clinical work and disease investigation (1983 to 1990).
Development and industrial linkage: Peri-urban dairy farms were studied during doctoral thesis research and
reported losses of Rs.1043 billion per annum. Linked the farms with SMEDA, Bank of Khyber, Livestock Institutions and civil administration). Presentation was made in the form of various reports, research and review papers for scientific and administrative journals, conferences, internet articles and press statements. Advised the successive Chief Ministers NWFP on livestock sector and presented development plans. MoUs were signed with various educational, development and business organizations for Technical Cooperation. Meetings were held with French and the European Union Missions who intended to link their commercial sectors with the livestock sector. Livestock Investment Conference was organized in collaboration of Sarhad Chamber of Commerce and Industries on July 28, 2005, attended by a wide range of participants from scientific, business, government and civil society organizations, recommending establishment
of diary colonies and other ventures through public private partnership.
