The T.A. Marryshow Community College and the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries on July 2 launched its joint training course in Animal Production and Health.
Twenty-two (22) 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 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.
The college was established on July 1, 1988 to provide accessible quality tertiary education and training opportunities in the tri-island state of Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique.
Its primary purpose is to help individuals achieve their personal and professional goals, and to effectively respond to the changing needs of the national, regional and global communities.
