Animal husbandry refers to livestock raising and selective breeding. It is the management and care of animals in which the genetic qualities and behavior of animals are further developed for profit. A large number of farmers depend upon animal husbandry for their livelihood.
Animals provide us with a variety of food products which have high nutritional values. Therefore, they require a lot of care and attention. Animals are bred commercially in order to meet the high demand for food. Dairy products from animals like cows, buffaloes, goats, are rich sources of protein. These animals are called milch animals as they provide us with milk. The premises has different breeds of cows, hens, goats etc.
This branch studies Genetic Improvement of Livestock by Scientific Intervention to bring about increase in productivity of Livestock in the existing farming system and conservation of Native Breeds. Dairy science and technology involves the study of the chemistry of milk constituents, the control of microorganisms (desirable and undesirable) associated with milk and dairy products, all branches of engineering related to milk processing, and the economics of milk processing, distribution, and retailing.
