Department of Animal Husbandry

The farsighted vision of the former Founder Pro-chancellor of Annamalai University Dr. Rajah Sir Annamalai Chettiar led to the establishment of the Animal Husbandry Unit in the Year 1958. The unit was functioning under the control of Dean, Faculty of Agriculture from the year 1960, when the Department of Agriculture was upgraded as a Faculty. The Animal Husbandry Unit was attached to the department of Agronomy in the year 1981. Later it was separated from the Department of Agronomy to function as Division of Animal Husbandry with effect from 1.7.1991. Dr.V.Chockalingam and Dr.MR.Vairavan were the predecessors of the Division of Animal Husbandry. The Division of Animal Husbandry has been trying to achieve excellence in teaching, research and extension activities under the headship of Dr. R.Vijayalakshmi, Reader & Head. Presently, the Division of Animal Husbandry has seven teaching staffs members who are experts in different specialized areas. Two office staff and fourteen farm workers are actively engaged in administrative and livestock farm activities.
