imagesA regional program to increase goat and sheep meat production was launched in seven Caribbean countries last week. The program seeks to improve the stock of sheep and goats in the region while training persons in animal husbandry, with particular emphasis on small ruminants.


The program which includes countries like Belize, Jamaica, St Lucia, Guyana, St Vincent and the Grenadines, Dominica, and Grenada is funded by the Food and Agriculture Organization, and the Government of New Zealand.


The overall goal of the program is to have the Caribbean producing most, if not all the mutton and chevon which is required in the region, while ensuring that participants in the small ruminants industry are well trained in all areas.
