Vidya Dairy

The SMC College of Dairy Science, Anand (established in 1961) is a pioneering dairy education center of international repute at Anand Agricultural University, for imparting undergraduate dairy technology education. The college is actively engaged in catering technical manpower for the Indian Dairy Industry. Till the year 1993 undergraduate Dairy Technology students of the SMC college of Dairy Science, Anand underwent the in-plant training in dairies scattered all over the country. This made it difficult for the college authorities / dairy authorities to closely monitor the students’ progress during the training, leaving them woefully short of ‘hands on’ experience. Because of this the students did not or could not take their training more effectively. The lacuna in the Dairy education system was churned by the great dairy visionary Dr. V. Kurien into conceiving Vidya Dairy to fulfill the dream of providing excellent training facilities to the students of SMC College of Dairy Science, AAU Anand. In concurrence with the joint recommendations of National Dairy Development Board, Indian Council of Agricultural Research (NDDB- ICAR) Panel, the programme was modified from B.Sc. (Dairy Technology) to B.Tech (Dairy Technology). With this vision, Vidya Dairy was established in February 1994 with a financial assistance of 15 crores from NDDB.
