Feeding animals is an important factor affecting their health, nutrition and quality of milk, so it is important to pay special attention to the preparation and feeding of animals.
In recent years, Chui region farmers have been paying special attention to silage production.
Farmers from Jumgal and Ton districts visited the farms of farmers Tilek and Atayev Akai during the exchange of experience and saw in practice how to thresh corn and press it into silage. Mr. Japarkulov Kalmurat, the head of the "Pedestrian Animal Husbandry" Association of Tilek and Akai, told how his students have achieved these successes, how he has been giving advice and support in difficulties, and noted that he is proud of his students' success. He gave advice to the participants and answered their questions.
This event was organized within the framework of two separate projects: the project financed by UN World Food Program and "Vegetable growing" project implemented with financed by International Seed Fund (SPI - Seed Programs International), implemented by the AVEP public fund.
In cooperation with the organization KGFRAS, in the Jumgal region, trainings of the public fund "AVEP" were launched to increase the knowledge of farmers. Farmers mainly improve their knowledge in the field of animal husbandry, forage production, pasture management and financial literacy. It is expected that by the end of the year 1,400 farmers will take part in special trainings.
This event and trainings are held in the frame of the project “Livestock Risk Insurance” implemented by the UN World Food Programme. The project is being implemented as a pilot in Aktalaa, Jumgal and Naryn rayons of the Naryn oblast.
