By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Twenty-five extension officers and technicians from the Ministry of Agriculture (MAFSE), the Belize Agriculture Health Authority (BAHA) and the Belize Livestock Producers Association, complete their three-day Sheep and Honey Traceability System Training Workshop in Belmopan today, Thursday, May 25.
The workshop, which is an integral part of the program to develop Belize’s sheep and honey industry, is being conducted 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).
MAFSE said the 25 participants in the Sheep and Honey Traceability System Training Workshop are learning how to use the TRAZAR-AGRO system, developed by OIRSA, to collect and analyze data on sheep and honey production. After the workshop, the MAFSE extension officers will be expected to collect data and to train farmers in their districts how to use the traceability system.
The workshop is conducted by consultants Ever Hernandez and Ever Ascencio from OIRSA’s headquarters in El Salvador.
According to a joint press release by the Taiwan ICDF, OIRSA and MAFSE, the three entities are committed to continue working together to support the Belizean farmers and to strengthen Belize’s sheep and goat industry.
