Our Mission

SFTRM is a non-profitable society for professionals aimed at educating and propagating the knowledge of reproduction and reproductive medicine to researchers, veterinarians and animal scientists. The society has special emphasis on the identification of reproduction-related problems and their solution through research, training workshop and symposium backed by extension services. It will support innovation in artificial insemination, embryo transfer and other aspects of reproduction in domestic animals. The society will foster and provide platform for cooperation and collaboration with other societies and organizations.

Message from the Vice Chancellors, the University of Agriculture, Peshawar (Patron of the Society)

It is a matter of great pride and privilege to be a part of an esteemed organization the University of Agriculture, Peshawar that prepares experts to meet the challenges of the agriculture and livestock industry. This has become possible with the untiring efforts of our teaching faculty which imparts quality education by relating it with real life scenarios and current developments in their respective fields. I believe that the Society’s vision is to resolve the problems relating to livestock production and create a significant and meaningful impact on academics, and research, as demonstrated by the mission of the society. Livestock sector is one of the most ancient and still a traditional sector in most parts of South Asian countries.

Pakistan is mostly characterized as agricultural terrain where livestock sector is an obvious choice of employment for a sizable population of the country. Developing and promoting applied research, new technologies, and veterinary education, I hope that this society will promote theoretical as well as practical knowledge and develop a bridge between the community and university. I wish every possible to this successes to this society in the days to come.

The Societies related to Theriogenology are usually an association of scientists and physicians interested in research in the field of reproduction. Some engage in basic or applied research, while others perform clinical practices. All are dedicated to advancing knowledge of reproductive processes in animals and in humans. I hope the Society for Theriogenology and Reproductive Medicine will play a key role in reproductive biology, treatment of infertility, contraception, enhancement in fertility, livestock production, and pregnancy health treatment of reproductive system cancers, extender development and artificial insemination. Other than this, I am hopeful it will also focus on identification of environmental contaminants that hazard the reproductive efficiency in both human and animals.

Since the birth of Human civilization, we are dependent on animals in several ways. A large number of domestic animals such as cattle, buffaloes, sheep, goats, camels and poultry are of great economic importance and a source of livelihood for a majority of population. These animals produce essential food items such as milk, meat, eggs and other byproducts.  Besides, animals also produce hides, skins and other products which are in use for ages. Other animals contribute in several ways to meet various needs of the society, e.g. horses, camels, donkeys and mules are used for transportation of goods and people and in different types of sports. In this way domestic animals have become an integral part of rural livelihood and national economy in Pakistan. Within agriculture, the livestock sector has the largest share, contributing about 58.6% to the agriculture value added and about 11.4% to the national GDP (Economic Survey 2019-20). Moreover, the livestock’s value exceeds the combined value of all the major and minor crops.  The share of livestock products in the generation of foreign exchange is about 13%.

The entire animal production of all sorts is the byproduct of animal reproduction. If animals reproduce, milk, meat and other products will be produced. The subject of Theriogenology, covering the physio-pathological aspects of male and female reproduction, occupies central position in Veterinary Science.  In order to bring the production of livestock to optimum level in Pakistan, the professionals related to Livestock sectors are needed to play a leading role. I am hopeful, that this Society will serve as a platform to bring forth skills and expertise from a wide range of academia, trainers, researchers, practitioners, and service providers and give them opportunity to join hands for enhancing livestock productivity in the country.

Reproduction is a natural biological process by which cells and individuals generate additional cells or organisms of the same kind or species and get multiplied. This wonderful process is based upon the interplay of many sex hormones as well as local modulators that promote different reproductive functions. SFTRM focuses on research in biology of the gamete (sperm and eggs) through the philosophy behind conception and embryo development. It also explores the clinical application of reproduction in animals. Beside this, it has a primary research focus on the understanding and treatment of disorders of reproduction with emphasis on the underlying mechanisms of various reproductive syndromes. I hope this society will become a precursor in investigating and propagating new and unique aspects of reproductive health and biotechnologies.
