The logo of the University is inscribed with the slogan Farmers Friendly and Rural Oriented, which emphasizes the importance given to betterment of farming community. Prof. R.N. Sreenivas Gowda was appointed as its first Vice-Chancellor and served with effect from September, 2004 until February 9th, 2008. Later Prof. G.S.

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. I am happy to state that these books are in popular demand at all the centers of our university. Moreover, Hyderabad-Karnataka Area Development Board, Kalaburagi has placed an order for 38000 copies of the same for distribution among Gram Panchayat Libraries of six districts
