About BSAS

The British Society of Animal Science (BSAS) is the principal learned body supporting animal science in the UK and Republic of Ireland. We work to advance the sector, improve the understanding of all aspects of animal science and ensure research and knowledge transfer has a practical and beneficial application.



Nineteen-forty-four, the year of the foundation of the British Society of Animal Production, now the British Society of Animal Science (BSAS), and the early years that followed, were filled with urgent opportunity – these were the post-war hunger years and the beginnings of the second agricultural revolution. The time was ripe for research and development in Animal Science. Unsurprising, that same time gave rise to pioneering people and pioneering places.
