     Message from Director

Buffalo, the 'Black gold' of India is already shining with a glittering future. This dairy species has been creating headlines commanding high price tags while also contributing immensely to animal protein needs of the vegetarian population of the country, as well as earning foreign exchange through surging export of buffalo meat.

 The country has made a grand spectre on the World stage being top milk producer and leading meat exporter – with crucial contribution of 71.3 Million tones milk (53 % of total) and 86 per cent of the exported meat from buffalo alone.
