Beausejour, Carriacou, April 07, 2014 - The School of Veterinary Medicine at the St. Georges

University, Grenada, in collaboration with the Agricultural Division in the Ministry of Carriacou and

Petite Martinique Affairs, held a seminar to assist small ruminant farmers on the sister-isle on Friday 4th April.

The first (1st) time seminar on the island is the eleventh (11th) in the series throughout the tri-island

This seminar was designed to meet the needs and to address the issues faced by small ruminant farmers on the island.

Assistant Professor, School of Veterinary Medicine, St. Georges University, Mr. Wayne Sylvester, said that the seminar will equip farmers with improved knowledge, better farm management skills which will maximize profits and also allow them to see their farming as a full-time business rather than part-time.

In concluding the day’s activity, farmers were engaged in a hands-on training session at the Limlair Farm to experience practical work.

Mr. Sylvester said that the farmers who were unable to make it at the day’s event have missed the hands-on training, but fortunately booklets with small ruminants farming techniques can be obtained at the Ministry of Carriacou and Petite Martinique Affairs.
