West Bengal University of Animal & Fishery Sciences was established on 2nd January,  1995 vide West Bengal University of Animal & Fishery Sciences Act - 1995 to impart  education, training and to conduct research in veterinary and animal sciences, dairy  sciences and fishery sciences and also to cater the needs of the farming community  of the State of West Bengal. During this period the University has been recognized  as one of the leading institutions of the country to uplift the socio-economical  status of farmers. The hallmark of the University has been the development of human  resources to meet the requirements of the society and to promote the socio-economic  development of the region.The University has been engaged in commendable task of  improving the research infrastructure to develop cutting edge technologies for improved  management of animal and fishery resources, disease problems, nutrients, water resources  and environment. Significant achievement has been made to improve the research activities  with the funds made available from State and Central Governments and non-government  organizations. There are three faculties in this University viz. (1) Faculty of  Veterinary & Animal Sciences (B.V.Sc. & AH, M.V.Sc. & Ph.D. courses) (2) Faculty  of Dairy Technology (B.Tech.(DT), M.Tech. (DT) and M.Sc. (Dairying) and Ph.D. courses)  and (3) Faculty of Fishery Sciences (B.F.Sc., M.F.Sc. courses). The research, extension  and farm activities of the University are organized through the Directorate of Research,  Extension & Farms of the University. Various research programmes have been running  since 1995 under the aegis of the said Directorate I joined the West Bengal University  of Animal & Fishery Sciences as Vice-Chancellor on 7th August, 2014. I fervently  hope that in the coming years we will get more opportunities to expand our educational  and research activities in the national and international arena. Our faculty members  have already proved this by getting international fellowships, awards and have also  been invited to present their papers in the international congress, symposia and  conferences. I am confident that with the co-operation of all concerned I would  be able to take this University to its new height.

Livestock keeping is most common popular practice in the rural areas of West Bengal among the poor people. It is the integral part of the farming system and finds multiple uses for milk, meat, skins, etc. Livestock rearing in India is mainly practiced as a backyard production system wherein the farmers traditionally rear a few livestock specially for meeting the household requirement. It is an important means of income and employment and helps to alleviate poverty and smooth income distribution. In addition livestock asset can be easily converted into cash, and thus as cushion against shocks of crops failure particularly in the less favourable environment. There is a tremendous scope of promoting their backyard livestock keeping in India into commercial micro enterprises. Apart from rearing of livestock, the livestock based industry has vast scope of generating additional income and employment through its various allied enterprises such as the commercial livestock rearing units, livestock input industry, livestock product processing units and organic livestock production units which can be harnessed for increasing employment and income in the rural areas. These are to be developed through training intervention which aimed at providing basic technical and entrepreneual skill to the rural farmers and unemployed youths.
