Farmer's Day was held in Issyk-Kul region on March 17-18. The solemn events were held in the city of Cholpon-Ata and in the village of Teploklyuchenka, Ak-Suu district.
This event was organized within the framework of the project on Integrated Improvement of the Productivity of the Issyk-Kul Oblast Dairy Sector, funded by the World Bank. The goal of the project is to increase the productivity of dairy cattle and the quality of milk on the farms of the Issyk-Kul region.
CAIConsulting in a consortium with TES Center successfully implemented a project under component 2: Implementation of training activities in the field of proper livestock management for farmers. Within 2 years, more than 6,000 farmers were trained in Jeti-Oguz, Ak-Suu, Tyup, Ton and Issyk-Kul districts.
At Farmer's Day, 3,000 farmers were awarded certificates and cans for successfully completing a 10-module course on good breeding and keeping practices.
As a result of the training, farmers have increased their knowledge and potential, which will further affect the productivity of farmers and households, their financial sustainability, as well as improve the quality of life. Farmers were connected to collection points and processing companies, which were equipped with the necessary equipment as part of the project.
