Posted: Saturday, February 24, 2024. 10:25 am CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: The Ministry of Agriculture and the University of Belize recently hosted a 2-day training for technical officers.

The training focused on regenerative cattle production.

The training extended its reach to farmers in the Cayo District, nestled within the pristine Mayan Forest, as well as University of Belize students.

“This initiative is a crucial component of the Livestock Project’s first phase, generously funded by the Nature Conservancy Belize through the Regenerative Agriculture Program. Aligned with the Regenerative Transition to Agriculture (RtoA), the project aims to shift from conventional practices to a more sustainable, regenerative strategy, emphasizing nature-based solutions,” the Ministry noted.

The primary objective is the establishment of a model farm under silvopastoral systems, serving as a showcase for sustainable practices.

The University of Belize is at the forefront of coordinating this phase, actively collecting data to validate the efficacy of silvopastoral systems in cattle production.

Led by Mr. Daniel Juan, the training sessions delve into the intricacies of livestock intensification and silvopastoral systems.
