About us
In India, the livestock production and agriculture are intrinsically linked, each one being dependent on the other and both crucial for the overall food security of the people. Livestock sector is an important sub-sector of the agriculture of Indian economy. It forms an important livelihood activity for most of the farmers, supporting agriculture in the form of critical inputs, contributing to the health and nutrition of the household, supplementing incomes, offering employment opportunities, and finally being a dependable “bank on hooves” in times of need. It acts as a supplementary and complementary enterprise.
The multiple species animal husbandry system is environment friendly. This sector plays an important and vital role in providing nutritive food, rich in animal protein to the general public and in supplementing family incomes and generating gainful employment in the rural sector, particularly among the landless, small, marginal farmers and women. Income from livestock production accounts for significant percentage of total farm household's income. Thus, an increase in demand for livestock products can be a major factor in raising the income and living standards of the rural household. With its large livestock population, India has vast potential for meeting the growing needs of teeming millions, particularly in respect of livestock products such as milk, eggs, meat and wool.

The Sundaresan School of Animal Husbandry and Dairying with its very well defined purpose, aims to the emergence of dairying as a full- fledged agricultural business generating mass employment particularly in rural areas. Scientific dairy farming is also helping to develop a symbiotic relationship between the farmer and industry. The School is committed to provide a sound base for teaching, research, extension and training with its well balanced educational programmes. A well defined course work covers various aspects of Animal Husbandry at Undergraduate, Postgraduate and Doctoral levels. Highly professional faculty is dedicated to share its rich experience with students. For successful livestock production a great deal of knowledge is required in Animal Genetics & Breeding, Animal Nutrition, Livestock Production Management, Poultry Production and Animal's Welfare in livestock enterprise of small farmers, marginal farmers and landless agricultural laborers who own majority of livestock in the country.

The founding of the Agricultural Institute herd as recollected by Mrs. Ethel Cody Higginbottom (Founder's wife) was a result of their two little children. Dr. Higginbottom bought a cow and did the milking. Within a few weeks, their friends in the neighborhood also wanted good milk for their children. He brought a second cow. Thus, they were reminded of India's need for clean unadulterated milk and at the sight of little children Dr. Sam Higginbottom would exclaim, oh! How India needs agricultural and dairy education. January 1, 1924 stands out as an important landmark in the history of Dairy training in India as on this day admission for the first batch of Indian Diploma in Dairying was conducted at Allahabad and Bangalore centers. In 1960 and 1964 the course was bifurcated and given recognition for IDD (Dairy Husbandry) and IDD (Dairy Husbandry); respectively. In 1969, a course leading to M.Sc. Animal Husbandry started and first batch of it came out in 1971 with five successful students. In 1979, M.Sc. Animal Husbandry course was re- named as M.Sc. Animal Science and later on Doctoral program in Animal Science also emerged. After Institute became University in 2000, the School started running four postgraduate programme viz. M. Sc in Animal Genetics & Breeding, Animal Nutrition, Livestock Production Management, Poultry Production and M.Sc. Animal Husbandry in July 2008. A new undergraduate program in B.Sc. Animal Husbandry and Dairying also started from July, 2011 and from current academic session of 2012, M.Sc Animal Husbandry with specialization in Animal Genetics and Breeding, Animal Nutrition, Livestock Production Management and poultry production program has been approved by the Academic Council of the University.
