Two one-day workshops on “Raising Milk and Meat Production through Nutrition and U.S. Livestock Genetics” were organized in June for local farmers and veterinarians.

USAID/Sweden FARMA II Project, in collaboration with the Veterinary Institutes from Bihac and Tuzla and in partnership with the USDA’s Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) office in Sarajevo, organized two one-day workshops on “Raising Milk and Meat Production through Nutrition and U.S. Livestock Genetics” for local farmers and veterinarians. 

In both sites the hosts of the event – directors of the Veterinarian institutes from Bihac and Tuzla – opened the workshops and Christine Sloop, Agricultural Counselor from the American Embassy in Rome, welcomed the participants.  A total of 71 participants at the two sites learned about high-quality U.S. animal genetics and nutrition for improving meat and milk yields, along with local approaches to livestock feeding and the advantages of the use of anaerobic digesters.
