Asia inhabits about 92% of the total world buffalo population. In order to foster research and development on buffaloes in the Asian region, Asian Buffalo Association (ABA) was established in 1992. Asian Buffalo Congress (ABC) is the scientific meeting of the Association organized in every 3 years in its member countries. This is the 10th edition of the congress that will be organized by host country - Nepal, which has been rescheduled as Oct. 25, 2021 - Oct. 29, 2021. The congress will be organized as "virtual" mode due to COVID pandemic.
Dear Scientists and Friends,
Namaste and warm welcome to the 10th Asian Buffalo Congress 2021 (ABC 2021).
On behalf of Asian Buffalo Association and the Organizing Committee of the 10th ABC 2021, I am honored to invite you all to the Congress.
The theme of the Congress is “Buffalo Production for food security and livelihood”.
Buffalo is an important livestock commodity of many Asian countries in terms of its food value and economic contribution. Asia inhabits about 92% of the total world buffalo population. In order to foster research and development on buffaloes in the Asian region, Asian Buffalo Association was established in 1992. Asian Buffalo Congress is the scientific meeting of the Association organized in every 3 years in its member countries.
Nepal being a buffalo loving country due to its milk, meat and an overall economic value, we feel proud to host the 10th edition of the Congress. This is the first time Nepal is organizing this important meeting. I strongly believe that the congress will provide a unique platform of networking among the scientists, professionals and policy makers not only from Asia, but also from all over the world. Moreover, the scientific deliberations, knowledge sharing and discussions during the Congress will add more scientific value on buffalo research and help addressing the key issues of buffalo production and its sustainable development.
Let us join hands to make the 10th ABC 2021 a grand success.
Thanking you all.
Stay safe stay healthy.
