Department of Livestock Production


Increasing productivity, especially in the small to medium scale production systems, is currently constrained by lack of skills, knowledge and appropriate technologies compounded by insufficient access to markets, goods and services, and weak institutions. The result is that both production and productivity remain below potential, and losses and wastage can be high. However, adapted breeds, local feed resources and animal health interventions are available, along with improved and adapted technologies that include sound animal husbandry, on and off -farm product preservation and value-adding product processing. Together with supportive policies and institutions, they have the potential to substantially improve productivity, income generation and to make a major contribution to poverty reduction.
The department of Livestock Production is actively engaged in imparting education and hands on training in the fields of management and production of various species of livestock especially large and small ruminants. The department has Livestock Demonstration Farms of dairy, sheep and goats with the purpose of providing practical insight and hands-on training to the students. Department also providing training and consultancy services to livestock farmers.

Besides teaching and research work, the department is also providing extension services in the form of technical advices to livestock farmers, stakeholders and allied groups. A close liaison has been established between the department and different national and international groups of livestock industry which helps in identifying the real issues and problems of industry. The research findings based on problem oriented research is communicated to the stake holders through meetings and group discussions.
