South African Society for Animal Science

Welcome to SASAS

The aim of the South African Society for Animal Science is to advance animal science and promote viable animal production systems, while sustaining natural resources and the environment. Animal science deals mainly with the three basic disciplines namely breeding, physiology and nutrition, as well as animal product sciences (meat, dairy, wool, etc.). Membership is open to individuals in possession of a bachelor degree or a diploma in animal science/production or a related biological science field, who contribute to the scientific knowledge of animal production, or the application thereof. Go to the pages of our journals, South African Journal of Animal Science or Applied Animal Husbandry and Rural Development and download any of our articles – free of charge!
