Department of Livestock Production Management

Department of Livestock Production Management


The Department of Livestock Production and Management has been come into existence in the year 1981 after bifurcation from the Department of Animal Genetics and Breeding of the college. Currently this department is engaged in teaching the subjects of Animal handling, Dairy Farming, Sheep and Goat, Swine, Rabbit, Pet, Draught, Wild animal, Fish and Laboratory animal Production and Management to under-graduate and post-graduate students. As per VCI norms, this is the largest department of faculty of veterinary and animal sciences.Historical changes in the demand for livestock products have been largely driven by human population growth, income growth and urbanization and the production response in different livestock systems has been associated with science and technology as well as increases in animal numbers.  The big increase in animal protein demand over the last few decades has been largely met by the intensive and sustainable livestock production.
