The present day scientific and technological advancement in the field of veterinary and animal science is being carried out by the State Department of Animal Husbandry. Veterinary Assistant Surgeons (VASs) in Animal Husbandry Department (AHD) are involved in the functioning of veterinary dispensaries, animal disease investigation units, farms, extension centers, zoos, slaughter houses, animal health planning and promotion of best practices, implementing various health schemes, dissemination of useful technologies, imparting farmers with necessary skills through training and demonstrations. Role expectation is the expected behaviour of the role incumbent while job performance is the function of both role and personality of an individual. The present investigation is an attempt to study the socio profile characteristics of veterinary assistant surgeons and how these characteristics influence their role expectation and job performance. A sample of 254 veterinarians was selected from three districts of three respective regions of A.P i.e, Rayalaseema, Coastal and North coastal regions. Results revealed that majority of the VASs were middle aged, possessed bachelor’s degree, had medium experience, medium job satisfaction, work motivation, work load perception, organizational climate, persistence disposition and physical facilities. Availability of technical staff is around two on an average and most of the VASs received trainings in gynaecology.
