IBADAN – The Institute of Agricultural Research and Training (IAR and T), Ibadan, on Thursday, held a training workshop on ram fattening for farmers, unemployed youths and pensioners from the South West.
Adediran, who was represented by the Deputy Director, Dr Ayodele Adegbite, said that the workshop, with the theme “Ram Fattening as Income generation and Poverty Alleviation’’ would enable farmers to make more income.
He said it was important for farmers to learn how to take care of animals, especially rams, “so that we can have fat and healthy animals fit for consumption.
“The rams are also important for Muslims during the Eid-el-Kabir festival, as they mostly use rams for sacrifice during the festival.’’
She said “go ahead and practice all that you have learnt today and if you encounter any difficulty, feel free to call on the institute.’’ (NAN)
