About the Department :

The department was started as a section with the establishment of Govt. Agricultural College. It remained as a part of the Agricultural Section until 1942 and then it was made an independent section under the charge of an Assistant Professor. The section was then involved only in teaching up to B.Sc. (Ag.) level. With the start of post-graduate classes in Animal Husbandry and Dairying in 1960, a beginning was made to undertaken research work on problems of applied nature. A post of Professor of Animal Husbandry and Dairying was created in 1961 to head of the department. A small poultry unit was added in 1965 and a small milk processing plant was also installed. The erstwhile Government Agricultural College was transformed into U.P. Institute of Agricultural Sciences in 1969 and then this section was given the status of a division in 1971.

Since the merger of the Institute into Chandra Shekhar Azad University of Agriculture and Technology, Kanpur, this division also changed into Department of Animal Husbandry and Dairying under the faculty of agriculture. Presently, the department is running M.Sc. (Ag.) and Ph.D. degree programmes in Animal Husbandry and Dairying with specialization in Livestock Production and Management and Dairy Technology.

Mission

  • To trained students regarding animal husbandry.
  • To increase Employment through Animal Huusbandry & Dairying.
  • To Doubling Farmers income through Value addition in dairying sector.

Mandates

The major mandate of the department is to train students at undergraduate and post-graduate levels in the field of Animal Husbandry and Dairying, especially in the areas of Animal Breeding, feeding and Livestock Production and Management, Dairy Technology, Dairy Chemistry, Dairy Bacteriology and Poultry Science.

Achievements

  • The University dairy is maintaining genetic resources of milch breed Sahiwal with an average milk production of 2000 litres per lactation. The valuable data on economic characters of Sahiwal cow revealed that breed had an inter-calving period of 439.5t 3.09 days. The heritability and repeatability were of the order of 19.7 and 34%, respectively. The average age at first calving was found to be 39.30 + 9.39 months. The milk production, lactation length and dry period for the first calving were found to be 1400 +58.77 kg, 297.25+28.53 days and 196.12+98.63 days, respectively.
  • Production physiology, studies conducted to ascertain the seasonal rhythmacity in breeding indicated that in buffaloes about 75 per cent of the breeding took place in four months (October-January). March, April and May months proved to be the main breeding season for Sahiwal cows.
  • Paddy growing area, generally has very poor class of livestock, the main reason being that the paddy straw, forms the bulk of feed consumed. Paddy straw besides being poor in protein, is also known to contain high percentage of soluble oxalates, which drain the animal of its calcium reserves To overcome this difficulty, paddy straw was ensiled with green berseem in different ratios. The ratio of 1:6 paddy straw and berseem proved to be the best with regard to lotal nutrients available to the animals. Feeding of bone meal chalk and molasses along with paddy straw also improved its nutntive value. Padoja
  • Krishi Cola : A drink was prepared by using whey obtained from making paneer This drink was given the name “Krishi Cola”. The whey was filtered to remove fat, if any, and then sterilized. 56 mg edible colour, 1 mg flavour and 10% sugar was added it to obtain a good refreshing drink. To increase its shelf life, addition of 0.1% edible soda was found to be most suitable. Bottles filled with the drink, sterilized and stored at refrigeration temperature, increased the keeping quality of drink.
  • The study revealed that age at first calving has been brought down to 41.3 months in case of 50:50 Sahiwal x Friesian, 33.0 months in case of 50:50 Sahiwal x Jersey, 39.6 months in case of 75:25 Sahiwal x Friesian and 33.6 months in case of 50:37.5:12.5 Jersey x Friesian x Sahiwal as against 45 months in case of pure Sahiwal. Milk yield per lactation was also gone up to 3589 litres, 2854 litres and 3534 litres in case of 50:50 Sahiwal x Friesian, 50:50 Sahiwal x Jersey and 75:25 Sahiwal x Friesian, respectively. As against 2474 litres in case of pure Sahiwal. The service and dry periods have also been brought down and birth weight and herd average have also gone up in case of crosses.
  • Two female calves were born on University Dairy Farm by the Sex Sorted Semen.

Facilities

  • Well developed instructional dairy farm having more than 250 animals.
  • A poultry farm capacity more than 5000 birds.
  • More than 70 acres old dairy farm used for production of green forages and seed.
  • Veterinary hospital also provide out door facilities to the dairy farmers.
  • Dairy technology, Dairy chemistry, Animal Nutrition and Dairy bacteriology Laboratory.
