The emphasis of the project is to build the regions capacity in improved husbandry practices and in the use of reproductive management tools including artificial insemination and embryo transfer for small ruminants as well as to establish a suite of robust information and communications technologies
(ICTs) required to improve innovation in the small ruminants sector. The latter will be done in collaboration with the Computer Science Department at the University of the West Indies, St Augustine.

Th Activity is now coming to an end from the perspective of the New Zealand sponsored inputs.  However, CARDI has taken over much of the ICT outputs along with the Jamaican MICAF benefitting from work completed at Hounslow Demonstration and Training Farm.  Countries which were involved and benefitted from training included Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica, Guyana, St Lucia, St Kitts and Nevis, Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago and work continues in Barbados, Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago to further expand the effects and impacts of the husbandry and animal breeding aspects in particular. For intersted parties contact CARDI in Trinidad and Tobago to see what is next on the cards.  New Zealadn wishes you all well and that teh small-ruminant sector continues to grow to the benefit of the CARICOM countries who particpated in the exciting and very busy Activity over the two and a half years from September 2015 to March 2018
