VBKVK has well furnished Farmers Hostel housing seven dormitories. It has a Kitchen, Store and Dining-cum-Recreation hall.

At VBKVK, "Synchronization of Oestrus" technique in unfertile heifers and cows is used with more than 45 percent success. The villagers admit their infertile animals at the clinic. A minimal daily food and medicine expense is charged from the owners.

VBKVK uses Oestrus Synchronization technique to convert infertile animals into fertile by using a hormonal protocol. This is different from the Ovsynch and Heatsynch protocol. The major difference is that the selection of hormone is based on ovarian palpation. It is successful with animals which haven't conceived due to infection in the genital tract. VBKVK, in technical collaboration with the Department of Animal Husbandry, Udaipur, took lead in training Veterinary officers of the district in 2009-10. Director, Animal Husbandry visited the trainings and assigned VBKVK the task to train 250 Veterinary officers of Rajasthan. During these trainings, Commissioner, AH, Government of India made a visit and emphasized to convert VBKVK into a national training centre for the cure of infertility


VBKVK established first infertility clinic for the farmers of Udaipur district. The present capacity of the clinic is 20 animals at a time, which may be increased up to 50 animals. Also, ATMA- Udaipur has released funds for 400 infertile animals. The results achieved range between 45% to 55%, which is more than the results achieved by A.I. This is of much help to the animal rearers of the state.

Once the treatment results into fertility or reduction in calving interval, the income from animals increases. In the long term, the income part takes over the expenditure benefiting the owner.

A variety of agriculture produce is available at VBKVKs sale counter. People in general have faith in the quality of products, which include dairy and field products. Farming community members, who come for on-campus training, are also introduced to the activities of sale counter.

The soil and water testing lab helps farmers to analyze the nutrient availability in their farm soil and makes recommendation for application of fertilizers to the crops based on soil analysis results. The entire crop based OFTs and FLDs are conducted in farmer's field only after soil analysis. Besides, VBKVK makes a data-base of crop based soil analysis, especially for wheat and maize crops for which the centre runs a number of projects supported by the ICAR, Govt. of Rajasthan and other funding agencies.

Samples like leaf, fruit or stem given to the laboratory are thoroughly analysed and problems and deficiencies are diagnosed. Remedies like the bio-control agents needed to deal with the pests or insects are recommended.

Eco-friendly farming is promoted by providing bio-pesticides and bio-fertilizers to the farmers, including crop and vegetable cultivators, at a reasonable cost.
