   NATIONAL ANIMAL PRODUCTION RESEARCH INSTITUTE AHMADU BELLO UNIVERSITY ZARIA
Welcome To NAPRI

The National Animal Production Research Institute (NAPRI) Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, originated from the Shika Farm, which was established in 1928 by the Department of Agriculture of the then Northern Region of Nigeria. Although, the laws of the University govern appointment, promotion and discipline of staff,  the Institute is mainly funded  through the Federal Ministry of Agriculture & Rural Development but administratively attached to Ahmadu Bello University.  NAPRI staff members participate actively in the academic programme of the faculties of Agriculture, Veterinary Medicine and Science.
