Brief Profile of the College/Polytechnic:
 The College of Veterinary Science and Animal Husbandry, Junagadh Agricultural University, Junagadh has started functioning since August, 2008, at the main campus of Junagadh Agricultural University, Junagadh.
The Junagadh Agricultural University, Junagadh has jurisdiction over the seven large revenue districts of Saurashtra region of Gujarat state. It comprises the districts of Junagadh, Jamnagar, Rajkot, Porbandar, Surendranagar, Bhavnagar, Amreli, Devbhoomi Dwarka, Gir Somnath, Botad and Morbi which encompass about 33% of the geographical area and nearly 35% of the livestock wealth of the State.
Among the livestock resources, this region is home to some of the breeds of livestock of the country i.e. Gir Cattle, Jaffrabadi Buffalo, Kathiyawari Horse, Gohilwadi and Zalawadi Goats, Patanwadi and Dumba Sheep, besides Pride of India Gir Lions, Wild Ass (Ghudkhur), Black Buck and Chinkara among many wild animal species. This region also shares 33% of the milk production of the State and has Co-Operative Milk Producers Unions in all districts with their dairies run under Co-operative Sector. Junagadh Dairy is run by Mother Dairy Foods and Vegetables Pvt. Ltd. in collaboration with NDDB, Anand.
It was felt necessary to have a College of Veterinary Science & Animal Husbandry at Junagadh to generate technical manpower of Veterinarians to satisfy the needs of the livestock health and management of livestock resources with specific emphasis and focus on regional needs to sustain rural economy. The need was felt since the 1960s when the first Veterinary College was started in 1964 at Anand in Central Gujarat, subsequently followed by second College in 1981 at Sardarkrushinagar in North Gujarat. There was growing demand of the farm and animal owners of the region to start a new Veterinary College in tract that is more dependent on animal husbandry in view of the rain fed agricultural situation in Saurashtra region.
Keeping this in view, the Government of Gujarat was pleased to accept the proposal of the Junagadh Agricultural University to start a new Veterinary College at Junagadh to cater the growing need of technical man power in animal husbandry sector of the state.
