Who Are we

The Department Of Animal Nutrition has been established with the primary aim to undertake the teaching, research and extension activities since 29.6.1991 as a consequence of the trifurcation of the erstwhile Department of Animal Production into, Animal Nutrition, Fishery and Animal Breeding, Genetics and Biostatics.The main mandate of the departmentwas to impart teaching at under graduate and postgraduate level by offering core courses to B. V. Sc. & A.H., M.V.Sc., and PhD programme. A revolving fund scheme was started with seed money of Rs. 25000 in 1993-94, under which feeds and feed supplements are being formulated, prepared and sold to various stakeholders.

Our Strengths

  • Well established U.G. and P.G. laboratories in the department with state of the art equipments for quality research
  • A well-established feed unit for preparation of feed and feed additives and making them available to various stake holders of the state. This feed unit is also used for providing entrepreneurship training to students.
  • Extension and Outreach: Consultancies/farm visits/ Capacity building of farmer’s/entrepreneurs in feed and feed supplement preparation and livestock feeding.
  • Revolving fund scheme with annual turnover of approximately 2 crores, thereby making the department a self-sustaining unit in terms of meeting financial requirements for day-to day needs as well as expenditure towards P.G. research.
  • Startup trainings
