The Department of Sheep Husbandry Kashmir is headed by a Director,

Sheep Husbandry Department, J & K came into existence in the year 1962 as a
separate department with the main objective of promoting
sheep and goat development in the state having sufficient scope and potential
owing to bountiful pastures and meadow lands presenting nutrient grasses and
herbage for the pastoral activities. In late
seventies a major expansion took place with the creation of Joint Directors, Deputy
and Assistant Directors level officers. Latter in 1982 department was bifurcated with
separate Directorates for the two divisions of Kashmir and Jammu and in
2006 Block Veterinary Offices headed by Block Veterinary Officers were established.............
