The Lanzhou Institute of Husbandry and Pharmaceutical Sciences (LIHPS) is dedicated to addressing major scientific issues related to livestock production. Specifically, LIHPS is focused on four research areas: animal husbandry, veterinary medicine, traditional Chinese veterinary medicine (TCVM), and prataculture. Many of the institute’s studies are dedicated to developing sustainable breeding techniques for Tibetan sheep and yak, and immunological approaches to enhance the fertility of ewes using the steroid antigen (testosterone-3-carboxyl-thyloximino). Moreover, researchers at LIHPS are developing chemical and biological medicines along with TCVM compounds for veterinary use, as well as safety evaluations for these medicines. The institute also investigates metabolic and poisoning diseases, dairy cow diseases, and ways to enhance veterinary surgery with acupuncture anesthesia. In addition, LIHPS focuses on improving and constructing grasslands and cultivating new pasture varieties.
