St. George – On July 2, 2012, the T.A. Marryshow Community College and the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries launched its joint training course in Animal Production and Health. Twenty-two trainees from the Ministry of Agriculture will spend the next eight weeks at the Mirabeau campus completing a range of courses including nutrition and reproduction of farm animals, production economics and animal diseases.
According to Mr. Daniel Lewis, Chief Agricultural Officer at the Ministry of Agriculture, "The aim of the training is to foster human capacity development with regard to animal health since livestock development is a high priority of the Ministry."
At the end of the training the students will receive certification and be expected to impart their acquired knowledge and skills to the farming communities. This is the second time that TAMCC and the Ministry of Agriculture have offered the Animal Production and Health course.
