The Ministry of Agriculture Animal Health and Production (AH&P) Division recently conducted training for 40 livestock farmers at the Nakoro Village hall in Navosa.

This was part of the Ministry’s continued efforts to revitalise and expand livestock development through the integrated farming system.

The training was organised in partnership with the Ministry of Local Government with the main aim of enhancing food security and reducing imports.

Acting Senior Agriculture Officer AH&P in the Western Division, Tevita Nabura, said the main objective of the training was to enlighten farmers to upgrade their knowledge of livestock development.

“There is a need for farmers to adapt the new technologies to modernize their farm in order to boost production,” he said.

“Training and educating local farmers will ensure they will be kept on track with local and overseas market demands.

“We appreciate that farmers came in big numbers to attend the training. Farmers in the province of Nadroga and Navosa are beginning to take interest in realising the market demands for beef.

“The AH&P Division is trying to minimise the use of beef as a magiti in these two villages, at the same time we urge local consumers to buy meat from the butchers and abattoirs to help local farmers increase production.”
