By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: On May 22, 2024, the Ministry of Agriculture, Food Security and Enterprise and Minister Jose Abelardo Mai hosted 3 Mexican experts in Pasture management.

Minister Mai and the team visited a demonstration plot of four hybrids: Camello, Cayman, Mestizo and Talismán, replicated three times on what is considered marginal sandy soils.

With 45 heifers grazing in each parcel of 1 hectare for one day in the peak of the dry season.

Experts Javier Hernandez, Jorge David Garcia and Miguel Angel Benitez of PAPALOTLA co are doing research in these 4 varieties and explained the advantages of the four hybrids.

“All four varieties seem to be doing well in the very dry, sandy conditions.

In my view, I believe both Cayman and Camello had the edge.

Farmers were very interested with the performance of these varieties given the soil conditions,” Minister Mai said.

As the industry grows more of this type of research will be required.

The training continues today at the Yo Creek Agric station.
