By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Twenty-five extension officers and technicians are participating in a Sheep and Honey Traceability System Training Workshop in Belmopan from Tuesday, May 23 to Thursday, May 25.
The workshop, which is a part of the program to develop Belize’s sheep and honey industry, is carried out by the Ministry of Agriculture, Food Security and Enterprise (MAFSE) in collaboration with the International Regional Organization for Plant and Animal Health (OIRSA) and the Taiwan International Cooperation and Development Fund’s (ICDF) Breeding Sheep and Goat Production and Guidance System Enhancement Project (Sheep Project Phase II).
The MAFSE extension officers will also be expected to collect data and to train farmers in their districts how to use the traceability system.
The workshop is being conducted by consultants Ever Hernandez and Ever Ascencio from OIRSA’s headquarters in El Salvador.
A joint press release by the Taiwan ICDF, OIRSA and MAFSE said the three are committed to continue working together to support the Belizean farmers and to strengthen the sheep and goat industry within the country.
