The Institute of Animal Science and Veterinary Medicine (IASVM) originated from an animal husbandry unit under the Shandong Agricultural Sciences Institute (the former Shandong Academy of Agricultural Sciences, SAAS) in 1955. It was expanded into the Department of Animal Science and Veterinary Medicine, which included two units: Animal Science and Veterinary Medicine, in the summer of 1957. The IASVM was founded as one of the earliest 16 established institutes approved by the People's Council of Shandong Province as per Document No. 442 LNKY (59) on April 11 of 1959.
On May 14, 2010, Shandong Provincial Establishment Committee LBB (2010) No. 43 canceled the "Shandong Academy of Agricultural Sciences Feed Research Institute" and established the "Shandong Academy of Agricultural Sciences Dairy Research Center". On June 28, 2017, Lu Nongke Dangfa  No. 27 approved establishing the "Council of Animal Husbandry and Veterinary Research Institute of Shandong Academy of Agricultural Sciences." On April 25, 2021, the Dairy Cattle Research Center was revoked. Its personal was merged into IASVM as per Document No. 3 LB (2021), titled "Provisions of institutional organization in SAAS."
The IASVM is a public welfare Class I institution of Shandong Province. It ranks as a top-100 agricultural research institution in China in terms of comprehensive strength in scientific research. There are 116 staff members in IASVM, including 62 doctors and 21 masters; 27 professors and 39 associate professors; 1 foreign academician; 1 leading talent in the "National Ten Thousand Plan"；1 former chief scientist of the "National Industrial Technology System," 4 national post-scientists, and 3 national integrated experimental stations; 3 Taishan Scholars; 2 Distinguished Young Scholars from Shandong Nature Science Foundation; 1 chief scientists of the "Shandong Provincial Industrial Technology System"; 7 Shandong Provincial post scientists; and 2 Shandong Provincial integrated experimental stations.
The IASVM continuously optimizes the support system for scientific and technological innovation, and has distinguished itself in 10 major research areas: pig genetics, breeding and feeding management; dairy cattle genetics and breeding; beef cattle genetics and breeding; ovine genetics, breeding and feeding management; rabbit and pet breeding and management; nutritional feed and environmental impacts;major livestock and poultry disease prevention and control; herbivores disease prevention and control;public health, and animal products processing. The IASVM is equipped with multiple platforms, including Key Laboratory of Livestock and Poultry Multi-omics, the Dairy Herd Improvement Center and the Beef Cattle Improvement Center, all three funded by the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs, a Shandong Key Laboratory of Animal Disease Control and Breeding, and research centers for Veterinary Biological Engineering and Technology, Dairy Cattle Breeding Technology, Pig Breeding Technology, and Livestock and Poultry Healthy Breeding Technology. Advanced large-scale equipment, such as automated milk composition analyzer, gas chromatographic analyzer, liquid chromatographic analyzer, atomic absorption spectrometer, quantitative fluorescence PCR, ultra-high-speed refrigerated centrifuge, automated biochemical analyzer, etc., are equipped with total values of more than 60 million RMB. These platforms satisfy the needs of multi-disciplinary and multi-field experimental research.
Attach importance to scientific and technological innovation and scientific research achievement. In the past five years, there were more than 40 scientific projects established annually, and the average annual project funding reached more than 30 million RMB. There were more than 430 papers published, including more than 130 articles in SCI-indexed journals, such as 《Nature Communciations》、《Emerging Microbes & Infections》、《Journal of Virology》. A total of 209 patents, including 91 national invention patents, 36 international patents, and other utility model patents, as well as 241 software copyrights, were issued. A total of 1 national standard, 1 industry standards, 22 local standards and 10 group standards have been established and promulgated. The IASVM has won 34 scientific and technological awards, including 3 second prizes in the Shen-nong China Agricultural Science and Technology Award, 3 first and 2 second and 1 third prizes in the Provincial Science and Technology Progress Award, 1 first and 1 third prizes in the Provincial Patent Award. The IASVM also established a novel livestock breed Lu-Xi Black head goats [(Ag03) New Breeds Certificate No. 16]. The IASVM developed an inactivated vaccine (SD strain) against Porcine Circovirus Type 2 [(2021) New Veterinary Medicine Certificate No. 63]. The large-scale promotion and application of these scientific and technological achievements have made important contributions in promoting the economic development of animal husbandry.
Insisting on cooperation and openness, the IASVM has carried out close exchanges and collaboration with domestic and foreign R&D institutions such as Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences, China Agricultural University, Shandong University, University of Pennsylvania in United States, University of Guelph in Canada and University of Leicester in United Kingdom, and has built 3 sino-foreign joint laboratories. The IASVM introduced 1 foreign academician and 1 postdoc from University of Florida working in full-time, and hired 2 foreign doctors as post-doctoral research associates. The IASVM also appreciates importance of being connected to the industry by actively cooperated with enterprises such as Yili, Longda Meishi, Vland Biotech, Qilu Animal Health, Delis, Sinder, Shandong OX, etc.
Services in science and technology demonstration and extension. Taking technological advantages of the public welfare institution, the IASVM focuses on developmental strategies including the rural revitalization, the three break-through, and the break-through in Yellow River Delta. In order to promote regional and even national rural revitalization and provide technical support for high quality development of livestock and poultry industry, the IASVM integrates sci-tech forces such as national and provincial industrial technology systems, local sci-tech agents and the Shungeng sci-tech service group; gives play to the impacts of “First Chief” and “Industrial Professor”; prorogates elite breeds, setups husbandry trainings, and provides sci-tech services and exchanges.
