Directorate of Research

The Kamdhenu University is the principle agency for research activities to be carried out in Veterinary, Animal Husbandry, Dairy, Fisheries and Allied Sciences throughout the State of Gujarat. Kamdhenu University emphasizes in prioritizing and undertaking R&D programmes especially in indigenous cattle enhancing production / productivity / profitability / sustainability of livestock production systems in order to provide livelihood and nutritional securities to the increasing human population. Research is the hub to convert ideas into hypothesis, develop protocols into techniques. Eventually these enormous efforts and brainstorming gets converted into technology and revolution. Kamdhenu University research efforts are getting translated under field conditions.

The research mandate of Kamdhenu University is to excel in research output by adopting cutting edge technologies which benefits Animal Owners in the field and common man in the street. To accomplish the vision of Kamdhenu University initial long strides in research have been made.
