The western Regional Government of Nigeria was faced with the problem of staff training. It trained from the Region at VOM, Jos has proved inadequate for poultry diseases diagnosis and control, which has become very important in the Region. All effort to get the authorities of the VOM School to upgrade their course to a three year Diploma course in Animal Health and Husbandry failed. Also, the three (3) places on Veterinary course reserved for the Western Region at University of Nigeria Nsukka in 1963 could not be increased because of pressures from the Eastern Region for places on the veterinary course in the University. It then became imperative for the Western Region Government to establish her own Veterinary or Animal Health School. It was proposed that the School should be located at Sango, Ibadan so that it could utilize the facilities already existing at Mokola Veterinary Centre, the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine at University of Ibadan as well as the Cattle Control Post and Abattoir at Bodija. The then Permanent Secretary and Controller of Agriculture Services felt that the School of Agriculture Already existing there. This would make the two School share facilities such as hostels and classrooms and thus greatly reduce the large financial outlay that would be necessary for establishing the new School at Sango. This view point was justified by the availability of the expansive land mass already acquired by the Region at Moor Plantation. This would give room for grazing and pastures and development expansion in future.
