VICE-CHANCELLOR’S DESK

It gives me great pleasure to recognize that our University is progressing well in all its three major missions namely, Teaching, Research and Extension. Taking the queue from the ICAR’s Farmer First concern, our University is making all efforts to empower the farmer with animal husbandry technologies. In this direction, our University has published 31 farmer literature books in Kannada highlighting most of the animal husbandry technologies which a farmer can easily understand and what’s more each book is priced at only Rs. 20/-! so that a farmer can easily afford.
