National Research Institute of Animal Production
The National Research Institute of Animal Production is one of the largest Polish scientific research entities serving the whole country. The Institute is directly subordinated to the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD). The Institute’s mission is to carry out research in the field of animal sciences with a view to the current and future production of safe food under animal and environmentally friendly conditions, and to use farm animals for biomedical purposes.
From the very first moments of its existence, the Institute would like to focus its activity on practice as a priority. It is in the experimental stations and in the Institute-depending companies, acting all over the country, where the scientists check the efficiency of results of their investigations through their implementation in life. The transfer of achievements to practice is taking place mainly through cooperation between the Institute and Breeders’ Associations, Chambers of Agriculture etc.
