By Rubén Morales Iglesias: A pig management training was held at the Lucky Strike community Center on Friday, June 23, for 17 experienced and aspiring producers interested in learning or improving their skills.

Livestock Extension Officer, Bernadette Cob, of the Belize District Department of Agriculture led the training with the help of technical staff from the Livestock Division of Ministry of Agriculture, Food Security, and Enterprise (MAFSE).

The training covered the main aspects of pig production: health, feeding, housing and husbandry practices. The goal was to help the producers increase and enhance their pig productivity.

“Learning pig management will provide the participants the opportunity to develop their knowledge and skills, which in turn can potentially help the district develop a skilled and motivated core of producers,” MASE said.

“The planned training offers a logical progression of skills development which helps planning and advancement focused on the different stages of pork production.”

The training also included practical farming activities, such as castration and deworming, to show how to apply effective management techniques for a sustainable pig production enterprise.
