Department of Animal Science

     Department of Animal Science was born together with Faculty of Veterinary Medicine since 1938 under the name of the Department of Animal Hygiene and Raising, with Professor Manit Phayaktanan as the first head of the department, and later there was a permanent lecturer, Professor Dr. Lek Thanasukarn There are 5 subjects taught in the initial phase:
      1. Animal raising (การเลี้ยงสัตว์)
      2. Animal selection (การคัดเลือกสัตว์)
      3. Hygiene (สุขศาสตร์)
      4. Heredity (กรรมพันธุ์วิทยา)
      5. Animal food (โภชนาการสัตว์)     
     Later, the curriculum of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine was developed several times and the department name was changed to Department of Animal Husbandry until now.
​     Currently, the department has an obligation to take responsibility. In terms of teaching and learning, there are 3 programs: Bachelor of Veterinary Medicine and Master of Science. and Doctor of Science degrees. In addition, there are duties and responsibilities Raising animals at the student training center (Department of Animal Science), Nakhon Pathom Province, including providing teaching and research services to departments both inside and outside the Faculty. which is required Use experimental animals and/or laboratories.

History of the Department of Animal Science

     According to the Act Chulalongkorn University, 1934, which was enacted on April 16, 1935, established the Department of Veterinary Medicine at Chulalongkorn University and opened for teaching for the first year in 1937 on loan. Lieutenant Colonel Luang Chai Asawarak who at that time held the position Head of the Animal Protection Division, Department of Agriculture Ministry of Agriculture come to hold the position Head of the Veterinary Medicine Department on May 24, 1938 (Chulalongkorn University Order No. 9/438) and began teaching using part of the Science Building, Faculty of Arts and Science. At that time, the curriculum at the Veterinary Medicine Department It is set for a period of 5 years, which must be completed. Prepare for Veterinary Medicine 2 years ago and study Veterinary Medicine for another 3 years to receive the Bachelor of Veterinary Medicine degree. In the field of teaching Many experts were invited. Become a special teacher and has recruited Thai people Experts in the field of veterinary medicine Becoming a full-time lecturer in various academic fields
     In 1942, By the Act Improvement of ministries and departments in the year 1942, Department of the University of Medicine has been established in the Ministry of Public Health and by royal decree Set up government regulations Department of University Medicine Department of Veterinary Medicine of Chulalongkorn University has been transferred to Department of University Medicine and promoted to Faculty of Veterinary Medicine For teaching animal husbandry subjects It would be the same.
     In 1955, the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine was transferred. to Kasetsart University. Later, in 1966, there was a royal decree dividing the faculties in Kasetsart University through the administrators of Kasetsart University. Considered that Animal husbandry subjects were taught. in the Faculty of Agriculture and Animal Husbandry which has faculty and equipment The place is already ready. If giving it to veterinary students Going to study will save your budget. And it's not redundant either. Therefore, the department of animal hygiene and husbandry was dissolved. and to the professors of the department which there were only two people goes under the Department of Physiology, however, the teaching of animal husbandry in the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine It's still the same.
     In 1968, the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine was transferred back to Chulalongkorn University again. and Professor Tiang Tansanguan, the dean at that time It was proposed to establish a new Department of Animal Science. In the beginning, Professor Dr. Lek Thanasukarn, Department of Pathology, was the Acting Head of the Animal Science Department. Later, the University Council appointed Professor Tiang Tansanguan, Dean, to hold the position. He was the first head of the Animal Husbandry Department, and later Professor Manit Payakkananda was appointed Head of the Animal Husbandry Department in 1972.

     When the Department of Animal Science was established after the faculty returned to Chulalongkorn University, Professor Tiang Tansonguan has planned a project to establish a College Farm similar to those found in other countries. which received the courtesy and support of Field Marshal Prapas Jarusathien, who is the president and was the Minister of the Interior at that time This resulted in a plot of land of 79 rai, adjacent to the Royal Thai Army Animal Department. In Bo Phlap Subdistrict, Mueang District, Nakhon Pathom Province This plot of land The Ministry of Interior There are plans to use it as a new Nakhon Pathom Provincial Prison. Therefore, the matter must be brought Attend the Cabinet meeting which was resolved to Give this plot of land to the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine Chulalongkorn University can count Field Marshal Prapas Jarusathien as a benefactor in making The Faculty of Veterinary Medicine has a place to raise animals. and is an internship for students until today. When starting out, the faculty requested to use the name "Jarusathien Student Training Farm" and Field Marshal Prapas Jarusathien also came to preside over the opening ceremony on August 11, 1972.
     When they had their own land, the faculty used the budget. To improve the area, build roads, build buildings, houses, and stables for various types of animals. Well digging office Develop raising animals, growing plants, etc. and have full-time professors, most of the department's professors. Have worked at the training center and participate in development animal husbandry Throughout the past nearly 40 years, this is in order for students used in training Especially the internship Animal husbandry and support teaching and learning of other departments, including the research of professors in the faculty as well, but the administration Need to generate income to support themselves as the faculty has a limited budget. Examples of pioneering activities in the early stages include borrowing revolving funds. from Chulalongkorn University Invest in construction of fattening pig pens Buy pig breeds and animal feed By planning to use funds at the level Farmers can use it as a model. When there is income from selling pigs Returned all the money to the university. Besides pigs There is also the raising of ducks and chickens for laying eggs, with the products being sold as welfare benefits. Given to personnel in the faculty of Chulalongkorn University Hospital and the general public. In addition, there was also a party rabbit and sheep For the sake of in research studies of teachers and researchers of the university and in other institutions.
     After the event of October 14, 1974, for reasons and social necessity “Jarusathien Student Training Farm” therefore changed its name to “Faculty of Veterinary Medicine Student Training Center Chulalongkorn University” Student Training Center Unit, Nakhon Pathom Province, Prof. Dr. Tiang Tansonguan gave the Animal Science Department Providing teaching of laboratory animal sciences (Laboratory Animal Sciences) is the first educational institution. where this subject is taught in Thailand in the beginning Received cooperation from Assistant Professor Dr. Muangthong Khaemmanee, Faculty of Medicine Chulalongkorn University He is the one who sets the curriculum. and is a co-teaching teacher in the Animal Science Department and special lecturers with knowledge in this area and provided funds for teachers in the Animal Science Department Went to study and train in laboratory animals. in Japan and also see work in South Korea, Taiwan and Hong Kong.
     For the development of the department Address in Bangkok There have been improvements and changes. Teaching the subject of Animal Science according to the curriculum of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine many times to suit the situation. There is a laboratory established. Making animal products for teaching students Establish a laboratory Animal feed analysis and laboratory Cytogenetics in animals
     For development at the graduate level Has opened teaching Master's degree program Animal Breeding Branch in the 1994 academic year and Animal Feed Branch in 2001.
