National Livestock Breeding Center(NLBC), marking its first footstep in 1872, has been at work for more than a century, waging a lot of changes.

Recently, NLBC has, under a close cooperation between the head office and 11 stations, played a roll as an agency to contribute to the living in Japan, boosting improvement of breeds of animals, producing and supplying seeds of forage crop, developing new technologies, bringing them into practical use and spreading them nationwide, and managing cattle individual identification information service.

Each footstep of NLBC, made year by year, indicates Japan's history of livestock industry, and its roll will be succeeded toward the future.
