Future NUBiP students from India: we have chosen NUBiP of Ukraine to become certified specialists in animal husbandry

February 11, 2022
    Two young men, Patel Sanket Jayantibhai and Mistry Maiurkumar Dalpatbhai, came from India and are attending NUBiP preparatory courses in Ukrainian in order to enter the Faculty of Livestock Raising and Aquatic Bioresources this year.
  • Good afternoon, Sanket! Please tell us about yourself. Where do you come from?

     — Maiurkumar and I come from the Navsari district of Gujarat, which is northwestern India.

  • What is this place famous for?

     — Jamsetji Tata, the father of India's industrialization, was born here. Also Gujarat is the leader in milk production in our country.

  • What influenced your choice of the country of study?

     — I had information about the education system in Ukraine, in particular about the high level of agricultural education.
       In India, Ukrainian diplomas have a high level of trust and are associated with European ones. Ukraine is also perceived as a country with glorious traditions of agricultural production and a high level of use of modern technologies, in particular, in dairy farming.

  • Why are you interested in agricultural production?

     — First, I would like to say a few words about our country as a whole, and then I will focus on agriculture.
     India is regarded as one of the most densely populated and multinational countries with a thousand-year history, a wonderful climate and nature. We are proud of our history.
     India is an agro-industrial country that currently has one of the highest economic growth rates. Accordingly, the share of agriculture is increasing.

  • Please tell us more about the peculiarities of animal husbandry in India.

     — For Indian people, the cow is a sacred animal that represents prosperity, purity and holiness! It is no coincidence that India ranks first in the world in the number of cattle (304 million heads, including buffalo) and remains the leader among milk producers (188 million tons per year, which is more than 18% of world production). The level of milk consumption in India has recently increased from 180 to 400 grams per capita per day.

     Sheep, goat, and poultry farming are well-developed across India. Several regions specialize in pig farming. In addition, the production of fish and aquaculture products is undoubtedly and traditionally very popular.

  • Which field are you personally most interested in?

     — Dairy cattle husbandry! I see dairy farming as a promising business and a stable source of income. In India, there are programs of state support for farmers. They are based on the policy of the National Council for the Development of Animal Husbandry, which was formed in 1965.

  • So, the educational program in production and processing of livestock products will allow you to achieve your goals?

     — Yes, I believe so. The Faculty has modern equipment, a lot of educational and research laboratories, and highly professional teachers.
    My compatriots Sachinbhai Katibhai and Trivedi Manav, who already are NUBiP 1st year students majoring in Aquatic Bioresources and Aquaculture, highly recommend the Faculty. Despite the difficulties that most international students face, they feel the support from other students and teachers. They are very positive about the administration of the University and the faculty. Therefore, I believe that everything will be fine here.

  • Thank you for this engaging conversation and for your interest in our educational programs. I hope you will soon become a part of our friendly student family!
