The basic educational system of India has been inherited from the British colonial time and accordingly the curricula on veterinary medicine and agricultural sciences have been developed similar to that of the United Kingdom. Unlike the U.S.A., Canada and a few other countries, the subjects of the animal husbandry (animal science), viz. animal nutrition, animal breeding, animal genetics, animal management, dairy science, livestock production and marketing, etc. have been taught as a part of the program in veterinary medicine, though some of the above disciplines of animal husbandry fall well under the domain of either veterinary medicine or agriculture or both.
