About the Journal
The Bhutan Journal of Animal Science (BJAS), founded in 2016, is an English-language double-blind peer reviewed journal on livestock science. BJAS is supervised by the Department of Livestock, Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock, and financed by the Royal Government of Bhutan. BJAS publishes research, reviews, reports on all aspects of small and large ruminants, equine, poultry, aquaculture, and apiculture. BJAS also accepts livestock associated research reports on climate change, sustainable development, and rural livelihood. BJAS requires academic papers and research reports to display universal, strategic and innovative characteristics in both theory and practice. BJAS acts as a forum for sharing information between researchers, policy makers and practitioners. BJAS is published annually.
This issue of the BJAS presents 14 articles, uniformly presented in a standard international format called “IMRAD” - Introduction, Materials and Method, Results and Discussion. Some of the articles presented in this journal are full length research, while others are short technical communications covering topics on dairy, poultry, fishery, animal nutrition and health, all gearing towards addressing issues and challenges hindering livestock development.
