Thus, Bharatpur is the prime agricultural district of Rajasthan, where animal husbandry plays an important role. Day to day needs of the rural people is fulfilled by the sale of animal products and by-product. Bharatpur district is the part of "BRIJ BHOOMI" the native land of Lord Krishna - the pristine deity of Indians in general and the Rajasthani in particular. Krishna-the Gopal always had great affinity to cows. In portraits of Lord Krishna, he is seen surrounded by a herd of good milch cows, which clearly indicates importance of cattle rearing which plays the most significant role in the economics of the livestock rearing in agriculture. A boost to the economy of the rural people can be given by improved animal husbandry practices and management, scientific breeding and prevention and cure from diseases. Taking into consideration of all these aspects, a Veterinary and Animal Science institution which can produce competent young veterinarians to cater to the above mentioned needs is highly relevant and a timely step. With their extension activities, these professionals can motivate the women and elderly persons to adopt scientific practices of small scale / backyard livestock and poultry: rearing for uplifting of the rural economy of the region. There are large numbers of Gaushalas in the district, which through proper veterinary care and upgrading through frozen semen from proven bulls, can be converted into centres of livestock development and sources of high milk-yielding animals.
