Welcome to Karnataka Veterinary, Animal and Fisheries Sciences University
Realizing the loss of two decades of prime development in the growth of animal husbandry, dairy and fisheries under Agricultural Universities set up, the Government of Karnataka took bold steps in establishing the new University called Karnataka Veterinary, Animal and Fisheries Sciences University on the floor of the Legislative Assembly. The KVAFSU was formed as per the Karnataka Act No. 9 of 2004 called The Karnataka Veterinary, Animal and Fisheries University Act 2004 and published in the Karnataka Gazette Extra-Ordinary on the 23rd day of February, 2004. The University was established exclusively for the development of education and learning; conduct of research and extension education and transfer the rural oriented technologies in the areas of Veterinary, Animal, Dairy and Fisheries Sciences in Karnataka. 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.
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
