Proper nutrition, pasture management and genetics were just some of the topics covered at the third and final Jamaica Dairy Seminar staged by Nutramix for farmers in St Thomas.
The seminars, which were also aimed at boosting local milk production as well as increasing the income of dairy farmers, were held as part of the Drink Real Milk campaign’s ‘360’ degree approach to revitalising the dairy sector through customer engagement as well as improving production practices.
All four of the campaign’s founding partners (Nutramix, Newport Fersan, Seprod/Serge, and the Jamaica Dairy Development Board) made presentations based on their various areas of expertise. The seminars were held in Elim, St Elizabeth; Ebony Park, Clarendon; and Serge Island Dairies in St Thomas over a three-week period.
