Prof M Subhan Qureshi
DVM, MSc Hons, PhD (Theriogenology) (UA Faisalabad)
Position: Dean, Faculty of Animal Husbandry and Veterinary Sciences, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Agricultural University, Peshwar-25120, Pakistan/Chief Patron Dairy Science Park, Peshawar/Adjunct Professor, Charles Sturt University, Australia
1. CAREER HISTORY
Academic excellence: Joined the University of Agriculture, Peshawar as full professor and served as Dean for two tenures. I have been working as HEC representative at PVMC and member of several professional bodies.
Introduced Dairy Science Park (DSP) as a sacred mission and integrated the business incubation concepts into postgraduate research ongoing at the Faculty, shaping up the University – Industry linkages. A biennial series of international workshops was initiated and it continued during November, 2011, 2013 and 2015, each by 450+ delegates, with 100+ technical papers and industrial exhibition. The proceedings were published online, in printed form and through impact factor journals and recommendations communicated to relevant authorities. The 1st workshop focused on post-flood revival of dairy industry, the 2nd on meat potential of the region and the 3rd on entrepreneurship development for the outgoing graduates. The fourth event has been scheduled for Konya, Turkey on November 1-5, 2017.
Functionalized the University Feed Mill under a lease arrangement through as private partner. Successfully introduced the feed at private dairy farmers in Peshawar and adjacent districts, competing with other feed manufacturers, based upon the best prices and quality. Initiated research on physiological base of animals’ productivity and stress physiology/animals welfare and tailored the postgraduate studies and research and development projects into these priorities. Motivated the faculty members and students for winning research grants to respond to the local problems and explore business and industrial aspects of livestock and poultry production.
Academia-Government-Industry Linkages: The Park has been registered as A Society with the Government of KP, Pakistan and accepted by the United Nations as #UNSDGAction9671, for self employment for the youth and hygienic food production for the people of KP and FATA. A road map has been prepared for developing the livestock and poultry production setup into a Halal meat export base. The plan is aimed at introducing good practices into livestock SMEs, enabling them to generate maximum income for the producers and hygienic food for the consumers. Feasible models are being developed for entrepreneurship development for the outgoing graduates. DSP has got support of the provincial Agriculture Minister, Special Assistants to Chief Minister KP on Law and Livestock. The United States Department of State’s Biosecurity Engagement Program has been supporting DSP under a Biorisk Management Collaboration. Letter of Intent was signed with the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences Beijing for industrial collaborative research.
Emerging industries in milk and meat processing and marketing have been provided technical and Quality Control certification support to relieve legal threats from the District Administration, who focus on price capping of milk and meat rather than quality. Meat shops established on modern lines of hygiene produce quality beef with a sound level of investment have to sell their products at relatively higher prices. Such facilities are raided by the government agencies on the basis of higher prices. The DSP teams visit such facilities and inspect the quality of animals, slaughtering, processing, packaging and storage facilities, provide SOP for quality standards and issue a certificate. Similar services are being extended to private slaughter houses and meat/milk processing centers and other emerging entrepreneurs.
Policy development: The Senior Minister KP, Mr Inayatullah Khan has agreed on establishment of DSP Board, under an Act of the Provincial Assembly, comprising Quality Control Laboratory Complex, Business Incubation Center, Halal Research Center and an Endowment Fund. The Chief Secretary KP has declared DSP as an innovative idea and is under consideration for approval through a Task Force. The Ex-Chief Minister KP, Mr Akram Khan Durrani supported the Park and recommended establishment of the University of Veterinary Innovations and Commercialization with up-gradation of the existing Faculty of AHVS, UAP establishment of additional facilities like slaughter houses, livestock markets and entrepreneurship models. The Higher Education Commission has accepted the Park as a Center of Excellence.
These efforts were recognized through Best University Teacher Award 2011 (HEC) and Research Productivity Award 2012 (PCST), selection as Dean for two tenures, membership of various local and international organizations/committees and acceptance of DSP as UN-SDG-Action-9671.
