The Korean Society of Animal Sciences and Technology (KSAST) was founded in 1956 and was remodelled through an alliance with the Korean Society of Dairy Science, Animal Nutrition and Feedstuffs, Animal Genetics and Breeding, and the Animal Science in the year of 2000. Currently KSAST has more than 1,500 members representing Animal Science Associations across the country.
KSAST is dedicated to work on the general interest of the society, including widespread development of theory and technology related to animal production, and establishing of cooperation among academia, research, and farms for promotion of animal related issues.
Aims and scope
Journal of Animal Science and Technology (JAST) is a peer-reviewed, open access journal publishing original research, review articles and notes in all fields of animal science. Topics covered by the journal include: genetics and breeding, physiology, nutrition of monogastric animals, nutrition of ruminants, animal products (milk, meat, eggs and their by-products) and their processing, grasslands and roughages, livestock environment, animal biotechnology, animal behavior and welfare.

He has served as the Vice President for Research at YeungNam University, and is currently a member of the Expert Committee in the National Science and Technology Council in Korea. Prof. Choi has served as the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Animal Science and Technology since 2012.
Prof. Oh is currently a Professor of Animal Science at Chonnam National University, South Korea. Animal science is nothing more than a study about our daily life. Milk and meat products are part of our lifestyle and the science behind this everyday basic biology holds the future for our provisions. Our deep relations to dairy and meat foods make this field of study interesting and inspirational for many researchers all over the world. Prof. Oh has served as the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Animal Science and Technology since 2018.
