NYUKMADUNG YAK FARM
The institute yak farm is situated at Nyukmadung at a distance of 31km from Dirang Township on a diversion (Mohan Camp) towards Tawang. The altitude of the farm is 2750 m above msl. The farm is having a total area of about 67 hectare with 108348 m2 pasture of temperate grasses (Dactylisglomerata and Loliumperenne) and legume (Trifoliumrepens) for green fodder production. The animals are reared under organized farming system where the animals are kept in both sheds and open paddocks. The Yak farm was started with only 4 numbers of yaks in the year 1993. At present the farm is having 138 yaks of which 63 are male and 75 are female. The total number of animal sheds at the farm complex are 18 (bull shed -1, metabolic shed-1, milking sheds-2, female sheds-2, general animal sheds-5, experimental animal shed-1, Parturation shed-1, calf sheds-4 and quarantine shed-1). The highest strength of herd was 209 (78 males and 131 females) in the month of October, 2012. A total of 45 calves (20 male and 25 female) were born during the period of April, 2012 to March, 2013. Highest birth weight of calf was recorded 19 kg with an average birth weight of 13.6kg.The conception rate of female yaks by artificial insemination AI is 64 percent. The total milk production during the year 2012-2013 was 6978.44 litres with the highest production during the month ofJanuary, 2013 (750.98 litres). Ten male yaks were trained to carry the load and five female yaks were also trained to access the load carrying capacity besides milk production. The institute has sold twelve yaks (6 male and 6 female) to District Veterinary Officer (Alo district), Animal Husbandry and Veterinary Department, Govt. of Arunachal Pradesh for conservation and propagation of yak germplasm in state. Fifty five numbers of yaks (7 male and 48 female) were auctioned to thepublic during the financial year.The first test tube Yak "NORGYAL" was born in Nyukmadung farm on July, 15th 2013 is a feather on the cap of the institute.
FOODER PRODUCTION
Certain varieties of quality fodder were selected for effective fodder production depending upon the climatic conditions during the summer and winter season. The fodder crops were cultivated and adequate quantity fodder was produced from high yielding varieties of fodder crops of maize and oat. The production of fodder round the year is tabulated in Table below.

YAK PRODUCT TECHNOLOGY UNIT
Milk processing
The unit has the facility for makingdifferent yak milk products. Churpi (loosecheese), paneer, low fat paneer, designerpaneer, churkam (milk candy), dahi, ghee,Lassi and cream are regularly prepared.Process for making vegetable extendedpaneer, kiwi flavoured whey drink, vitamin Cenriched whey beverage, enrobed paneerfinger are also prepared. This year a newtechnology on ginger flavouredchurkhamfrom yak milkhave been produced but sensoryevaluation part is yet to be completed. The Unit generated a gross income of Rs.87, 288through the sale of different yak milk products and Rs. 9,306.00 through raw yak milk in the financial year 2012- 2013.
Wool processing
Different woollen products are preparedfrom yak outer coarse hair and inner fine woolusing choudhary charkha and local tools [likeTha, Thong, Dichung, Chaksi, Yukur, Fiang,Changtha,Jamsi (scissors)]. This institute ishaving the facility to prepare carpet, foot mat,chamar, caps, rope/belt and mats. This year anew creative design of door mat has beenprepared using equal proportion of sheep andyak wools.Chammer is prepared from long hairs clipped from yak tail were made by utilizing the yak hair. The Unit generated a gross income of Rs.11, 300 through the sale of innovatively designed carpets, caps etc. made from yak hair fibers in in the financial year 2012- 2013.
TECHNICAL CELL
The Technical Cell is dealing with all technical matters and generating reports viz., Annual Report, News Letter etc. published from this Centre. This Cell plans documents incorporating scientific and other information. Central Xeroxing, still/digital photography, liquid crystal display system, overhead projector, slide projector, video photography facilities are available at this Cell besides standalone computer systems with colour laser printing facility. This cell is headed by one Scientist, who acts as In-charge.

AKMU
The AKMU (Agricultural Knowledge Management Unit) has been established in the year 1998. Presently the cell is equipped with FTDMA VSAT having 2Mbps bandwidth capacity through which the internet is being distributed to all important sections. This unit is having two individual computer systems with black and white laser and scanning facilities. Decentralized Computer System with printing facilities as per the requirements (color laser, color deskjet, color inkjet, b/w laser, dot matrix etc.) have been provided to all the Scientists, Technical Officers, other administrative sections besides AKMU and Director's Cell. New internet connectivity is being provided through ERNET India, New Delhi in November, 2004.Presently this unit has startedfunctioning in newly constructed office-cumlaboratory building. Periodic updating of webcontents of the institute home page is carriedout by the unit.
PME AND RFD CELL
The Prioritization, Monitoring andEvaluation (PME) and Results FrameworkDocuments (RFD) committees wereconstituted with Dr. P. Chakravarty, PrincipalScientist & Nodal Officer as MemberSecretary. In addition to assigned activities ofthe cells, the responsibility for PIMS-ICARand HYPM system developed by IASRI aregiven to In-Charge, PME Cell. The RFD for the year 2013-14 has beenfinalized and work is in progress as decided.Regular meeting of these cells are held at thisinstitute. During the period under report PMEcell has organised seven technical seminarswhich has been delivered by the scientists ofthis research institute on the followingaspects:
  Transgenic Animal Production - Farming towards Pharming
  Transplantation Immunology: Sequence of Events on Recognition of Self from Non-Self
  Genetically Modified Plants-are they Safe Livestock Feeds for Future Scope of rumen manipulation for improving animal productivity
  Genome mapping and functional genomics of farm animal
  Cyanobacterial toxicity: An environmental concern for terrestrial & aquatic life
  Weaning: an imperative for livestock propagation
VETERINARY POLYCLINIC
This institute also runs a veterinarypolyclinic which caters the need of yaks atinstitute farm and nearby villages. Cattle, mithun, small animals and yak and yak hybridsof local farmers have been treated fordigestive disorder, ecto-parasitic infestation,gynaecological and other systematicdisorders.
