HUMAN RESOURCES DEVELOPMENT IN ANIMAL HUSBANDRY DEPARTMENT

The Animal Husbandry Department has recognized the challenges from the emerging livestock perspective at the national and state level and has formulated its vision/ mission for guiding the department to cope with these challenges.

In order to meet the growing challenges and opportunities emerging in the livestock sector in the post-GATT regime and to protect the interest of the farmers, the staff of AHD needs to be competitive, motivated, and committed. They need to understand the market dynamics, group dynamics, consumer behavior and interpersonal communication skills. Heavy demand is made on them to maintain high quality production and control. Some of the staff at senior level are expected to manage a large number of personnel working under them. To meet all these challenges and concerns, the AHD needs to evolve and strengthen a sound HRD system with proper vision, mission, goals ect.

VISION OF HRD

Competent, Confident and Committed Staff who provide Effective Services to Farmers

MISSION OF HRD

  • Conducive climate for learning and performing within AHD
  • Right people at the right place
  • Resilient and sustainable training institutional network and infrastructure
  • Permanent HRD cadre/faculty
  • Optimal utilisation of resources
  • Effective performance appraisal system
  • Pro-farmer orientation for quality service

GOAL
Promote and strengthen a favourable environment for personnel and organisational development in AHD to meet the challenges in the livestock sector.

OBJECTIVES:

  • Factors affecting favorable conditions for learning and performing are identified and addressed
  • A permanent HRD faculty with delegated responsibilities and budget is established with apt specification for personnel, roles and functions.
  • AHD staff is oriented to address HRD issues.
  • Information system related to staff and staffing is developed and implemented

In the strategic planning process, a vision/mission statement as well as a clear goal and objectives for HRD in the Department has been formulated. For achieving these objectives a two-pronged strategy is proposed:

  • Training as a strategic tool for developing HRD; especially (personnel) management training for senior level officers

 

  • Establishment and capacity building of HRD faculty, whereby all departmental training centers (state, regional level and district level) are brought under one umbrella and staff will be allowed to continue in the field of training.

Training in AHD

In order to develop the competency of AHD staff in their job, the department will pursue the following training strategy.

  • AHD will adopt the following principles of training: (I) Training is a continuous activity throughout the staff career and each staff member will participate in one training course per year, based on needs, (ii) In service training courses are short, specific and performance linked and extension will be an integral part of the courses.
  • All the training centers will come under the HRD faculty under the supervision of an Additional Director
  • Based on a detailed training needs analysis (TNA),  mandates, roles and functions for the different training institutions at three levels have been defined.
  • State level training institutions (SMILDA, SAHTC, Mandapeta, SAHTC, VBRI) are specialized centers, regional centers (7) focuses on region specific issues and district training centers (22) will address district specific issues.
  • The training centers will have functional autonomy within the framework of an approved action plan, including budget.
