Farmers Trained To Combat Animal Diseases

By Korboi Gbelewala, Lofa County Correspondent

VOINJAMA, March 12 (LINA) -A two-day workshop to train community-based volunteers and farmers to identify and treat common diseases in poultry, sheep and goats has ended in Voinjama City, Lofa County.

According to the Liberia News Agency (LINA), the training brought together over 37 farmers and volunteers from the county.

The training was part of an alternative livelihood project for poverty reduction, organized by the Farmer Production Initiative Cooperation (FPCI), a non-governmental organization based in Lofa.

Speaking at the close of the workshop, Jeremiah Momo , Executive Director of FPCI, said the effects of climate change in the country was more drastic on crops than cattle.

Momo said breeding animals is becoming an alternative source of livelihood in many parts of the country, noting that due to the increasing demand for meat products, prices of these products keep increasing in the country.

The FPCI official told the participants that under the project, FPCI provides training to farmers and provides drugs to vaccinate the animals, and urged the participants to make maximum use of the training.
