Post Animal Nutrition ICAR NET previous year question paper

Sir, Please provide the 5 years previous question paper of ICAR net of subject Animal Nutrition Paper.

The Agriculture Scientists Recruitment Board will hold ASRB NET 2020, a combined Agricultural Research Service (ARS) and National Eligibility Test (NET-I) for appointment as a scientist in ARS of ICAR and to determine the eligibility for lecturer/assistant professor in the various agricultural universities through NET.

As Animal Nutrition Syllabus of ICAR NET papers not available below I am providing you the syllabus.

Below I am providing you the Animal Nutrition Syllabus of ICAR NET:

Unit 1: Energy and Proteins: Nutritional significance of carbohydrates, lipids and proteins.

Cell-wall fractionation. Available energy from organic nutrients. Partitioning of dietary energy. Basal metabolic rate. Energy retention. Factors affecting energy utilization. Direct and indirect calorimetry. Dietary lipids - their digestion, absorption and metabolism. Essential fatty acids. Effect of dietary fat on milk and body composition. Proteins - digestion, absorption and utilization. Comparative efficiency of amino acids as energy source. Essential and critical amino acids. Protein evaluation. Metabolizable protein concept. Protein energy inter-relationship. Energetic of protein utilization for maintenance and different productive functions.

Unit 2: Minerals, Vitamins and Feed Additives Minerals:

Classification of minerals, Physiological functions, Deficiency symptoms and toxicity - Inter-relationships - Synergism and antagonism - Requirements - Different sources and bio-availability - Role of chelated minerals. Vitamins: Physiological functions and co-enzyme role - Deficiency symptoms, hyper-vitaminosis. Requirements, Sources and vitamin analogues - Antivitamins – Feed Additives: Nutritional role. Prebiotics - Probiotics, phytochemicals other metabolic modifiers. Role of phyto-chemicals as growth promoters.

Unit 3: Rumen eco-system and functions

Rumen and its environment. Development of functional rumen. Digestion kinetics in reticulo-rumen. Role of rumen microbes, Significance of rumen fungi- Defaunation and transfaunation. Microbial fermentation in rumen. VFA production, inter-conversion and utilization. Dietary protein breakdown. Microbial protein synthesis. NPN compounds and their utilization. Ammonia toxicity - Role of slow release urea compounds. Manipulation of rumen fermentation. Bio-hydrogenation and utilization of dietary lipids. Methanogenesis and methane inhibitors.

Unit 4: Non-ruminant Nutrition Comparative gastrointestinal physiology of monogastrics –

digestion and metabolism of organic nutrients in poultry and swine. Significance of minerals and vitamins in mono-gastrics. Inter relationship in nutrient sparing activity. Feeding systems. Role of feed additives - Factors affecting nutritional quality and performance. Special nutritional needs of rabbits, horses and companion animals.

Unit 5: Nutrient Requirements

Energy protein requirements for maintenance and productivity in ruminants and non-ruminants. Colostrum feeding of calf, mineral and vitamin requirements. Dry matter intake in relation to productivity. DM: water intake ratio. Palatability. Nutritional intake and energy density. Feeding standards - NRC, ARC, Kearl and Indian. Nutrient requirements under temperate and tropical environment. Feeding strategies during stress and natural calamities - Ration formulation - least cost rations.

Unit 6: Forage Conservation and Evaluation Natural and cultivated forges-

Their composition and nutritive values. Nutritive value Index. Forage quality evaluation in range animals -Role of indicator methods-Advances in silage and haymaking- Factors affecting quality of conserved forages- Quality criteria and grading of silage and hay under tropics-artificial drying of forages.

Unit 7: Feed Processing and Technology

Methods of feed processing -physical, chemical and biological effect of processing on nutritional quality and utilization. Pelleted and extruded feeds. Quality control of raw feedstuffs and finished feeds: Significance of BIS (standards). Handling and storage of raw and finished feeds. Methods to improve shelf life of fat rich feeds, By-products of newly introduced commercial crops including residues of genetically modified feeds. Alternative feed resources. Current approaches in enriching tropical feed resources - concept of total mixed ration and advances in complete diet formulation.

Unit 8: Anti-metabolites and Toxic Principles

Naturally occurring anti-nutritional factors and common toxins in feeds and forages. Methods of detoxification. Health hazards due to residual pesticides in feeds and forages - Environmental pollutants.

Unit 9: Elements of Research Methodology

Principles of animal experimentation - Experimental designs in nutritional research. Modern methods of feed evaluation – In vitro, gas production and nylon bag techniques, Rumen simulation techniques - Rusitec Tracer techniques in nutrition research - Role of NIR Spectroscopy - Feed microscopy in quality evaluation of feedstuffs.

Unit 10: Clinical Nutrition

Role of nutrition to control digestive and metabolic disorders (milk fever, ketosis, ruminal acidosis-laminitis, bloat), metabolic profile tests. Role of nutrition in immunity, nutrition and reproduction, nutrients as antioxidants. Role of nutrition in management of GI parasites.

ASRB NET Exam Pattern

NET Exam Papers consist of one paper.
It consists 150 of multiple choice questions.
For each correct answer, you will get 1 mark
So the total marks are 150.
The negative Marking for ASRB NET Exam is 1/3rd mark penalty for a wrong answer.
ASRB NET Exam Duration is 2 hours.
