About the Association

AAAS is the pre-eminent national professional association for animal industry scientists, consultants, industry professionals and students. AAAS contributes to building industry capability by providing a lifelong support network to students, industry professionals and researchers with access to “translated” scientific research, career and professional development opportunities and with links to highly credentialed mentors and consultants. AAAS builds on the strength of its predecessor organization, the Australian Society of Animal Production, which was founded over 60 years ago to promote animal science in Australia.

AAAS is renowned for facilitating and providing access to leading edge animal science and research through its internationally recognised biennial conference. As a member of the World Association of Animal Production, it is part of a global network of animal scientists.

We are embarking on a bold new mission to grow our membership base to connect animal science students, industry professionals and researchers. We hope you will join us on this exciting journey.
