The Taiwan ICDF Project Specialist Eason Huang, assistant technicians Ken Wu and Jimmy Hsu, and the Project’s field manager Istvan Metzger made presentations on animal nutrition, health, and selection, and silage preparation.
During the afternoon session, Wu, Hsu, and Metzger made demonstrations of sheep management practical skills including the Famacha system demonstration, sheep selection exercise, and body condition score practice.
MAFSE said the workshop is part of the commitment of the Sheep Project Phase II to help local farmers in Belize. The Sheep and Goat Project itself is part of the commitment of the Governments of Belize and the Republic of China (Taiwan) to work together to support Belizean farmers and strengthen the country’s sheep and goat industry within the country.
