By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The Ministry of Agriculture, Food Security, and Enterprise (MAFSE) says 25 persons are attending a three-day Sheep and Goat Slaughtering and Nutrition Management Workshop in Cayo.
The 25 participants include livestock technical officers from the Ministry, the Belize Agriculture Health Authority (BAHA), and the Belize Livestock Producers Association (BLPA), a University of Belize lecturer, and sheep & goat farmers.
The three-day training is being held at the Drift Inn & Aguada Hotel in Santa Elena, Cayo District, from Monday, August 15, to Wednesday, August 17.
“The training is facilitated by three experts from the University of San Carlos in Guatemala, who have more than 20 years of experience in sheep and goat nutrition and slaughtering techniques,” said MAFSE Communications Officer Catherine Hob.
MAFSE said the Sheep and Goat Slaughtering and Nutrition Management Workshop is being conducted as part of the collaboration it has with the Taiwan International Cooperation and Development Fund (ICDF) Breeding Sheep and Goat Production and Guidance System Enhancement Project (Sheep Project Phase II).
The second phase of this Taiwanese funded project assists Belizean farmers through theoretical and practical training and educational outreach.
“The aim of the workshop is to train instructors in Sheep and Goat Nutrition Feeding Management and Slaughtering Techniques, creating value adding to the local lamb and mutton production, while improving the productivity of the national sheep and goat industry in Belize,” said MAFSE.
The Ministry added that the training includes sessions of nutrition management, slaughterhouse hygiene practices, animal welfare, meat cuts processing, plus demonstrations and practices in slaughtering and carcass production.
