World Veterinary Day to be celebrated by VASTA on 28 April, 2018.

Veterinary & Animal Science Teachers Association will celebrate World Veterinary Day on 28 April 2018 in the campus of College of Veterinary & Animal Sciences Palampur. Sh Virender Kanwar Hon’ble Minister for Rural Development, Animal Husbandry & Panchayati Raj will be the Chief Guest and Prof Ashok Kumar Saryal, Vice Chancellor CSK HPKV will preside over the function.  The theme for the World Veterinary Day 2018 is the role of the Veterinary Profession in Sustainable Development to improve livelihoods, food security and safety.
World Veterinary Day is celebrated through out the world by the animal lovers and veterinary professionals every year in the last Saturday of April. This year VASTA is also organizing Half Marathon “Run for Animals” to mark the event on 28 April at 6:30 AM. The half marathon will start from the campus of the college uptill Subhash Chowk Palampur and back to CSK HPKV Gate No.1.
Numerous other events have been planned to commemorate the event including Free Anti Rabbies Vaccination in the College Veterinary Clinic and the dog lovers can avail of this facility by bringing their pets on 28 April. Also a Quiz, Poster and Slogan competition will be organized. The day is celebrated through out the world to apprise the society about the contribution of the veterinary professionals for animal and human health, food security and safety.




Palampur Veterinary Microbiology Centre rated very good by the ICAR


Department of Veterinary Microbiology, Dr. GC Negi College of Veterinary & Animal Sciences has been rated by the review committee of ICAR as “very good” for its consistently excellent research work and for meeting the objectives of All India Network Programme on Haemorrhagic Septicaemia- a very important infectious and contagious disease of livestock.

It is worth to share that a team of scientists led by Late Dr. RC Katoch & Professor Mandeep Sharma as Principal Investigators of the Network Programme has achieved many milestones.

Team has recently come out with a status paper on Pasteurellosis in animals (livestock/wild animals/poultry). More than 8000 samples were processed for Pasteurella multocida isolation and close to 200 isolates were recovered. Repository of these isolates is now with the department and also IVRI and some rare isolates have been shared with the national repository of VTCC@Hissar.

Antibiotic profiles for all isolates and molecular profiles & virulence profiles were created on selected isolates.

Many virulent genes were sequenced and deposited to the NCBI database.

Vaccines developed by the partners under the project were validated by studying immune responses.

Structural functional analyses of ompA were studied.

Indigenous diagnostic kit (iELISA, LAMP, latex agglutination assay) were developed and tested.

Several high impact publications including review paper were published.

Currently under the network programme, this centre has been given the task to elucidate the molecular mechanisms operative during host-pathogen interaction. This is being studied using various genomics and immunomics approaches.
