Under the support of EU – Technical Assistance Complimentary Support (EU-TACS) Project, Mr. Nico van Wageningen from The Netherlands was previously assigned to provide consulting services including technical assistance and studies in support of sound implementation of strategies in inputs farms under the Department.
Mr. Nico as a part of his assignment is currently visiting the farms under the Department of Livestock to exercise critical analysis of DoL’s livestock input generating farms. During his visit, he will be closely looking into farm potential and strategic gap analysis with respect to the production capacity of inputs and their contribution to input demand, taking note of the 12th five-year plan targets and vision 2045 for the livestock sector.
He will also assess the potential for developing a strategy of cluster livestock farms and identify areas requiring improvement, and suggest appropriate technical and policy interventions.
Later this month (September), he will present his final findings and report to the Department of Livestock.
