|Ms. Stover visited with animal producers in the South of Haiti|
In her words,"During my two-week stint in Haiti, I toured the country and met a number of different goat farmers. Until I arrived, there had not been anyone with Farmer to Farmer to handle strictly goat production. I went in with the objective of observing and discovering the major issues that farmers were facing."
Ms. Stover conducted a thorough analysis of several sites in the South and North of Haiti and made recommendations in the areas of parasite control and appropriate remedies, dairy production training, slaughter standards, breeding practices, and more. Farmer to Farmer is planning another trip this fall where a volunteer will address breeding practices and energy needs of goats, as a follow-up to her recommendations and findings. Thanks go to Ilana and the ACES for their support of Farmer to Farmer's efforts to improve goat production practices and benefit farmeres in Haiti!
