In a bid to bolster the agricultural sector's adaptation to the fourth industrial revolution, Bangladesh Agricultural University's (BAU) Vice-Chancellor, Professor Dr Emdadul Haque Chowdhury, emphasized the pivotal role of integrating smart farming practices into veterinary education.

He underlined the crucial link between animal health and environmental preservation, noting that neglecting one jeopardizes the other.

BAU Vice-Chancellor Professor Dr Emdadul Haque Chowdhury was present as chief patron, alongside other dignitaries including Md. Abdul Awal, Dean, Faculty of veterinary science of BAU and AKM Khasruzzaman, Managing Director of Inter Agro Vet BD Ltd, were present on the occasion.

The conference served as a platform to underscore the critical need for aligning veterinary education with the evolving landscape of agricultural practices, emphasizing the imperative of cultivating smart farmers alongside smart graduates to propel Bangladesh towards agricultural sustainability in the era of technological advancement.
