AgriMin partners with NCU to revitalize dairy sector

The Ministry of Agriculture has entered into a partnership with the Northern Caribbean University (NCU) to develop 40 acres of fodder for the dairy sector.

The institution also received six Jamaica Hope cattle from the ministry and a new milking parlour is to be constructed.

Portfolio minister Floyd Green made the announcement at the recent dairy revitalization project launch, held at the institution in Mandeville.

Mr. Green noted that for Jamaica to regain its world leader status in the dairy sector, the amount of milk produced must be increased.

He stated that while the dairy sector has faced significant challenges over the years, the ministry is looking to revitalize it.

Mr. Green also noted that a team has been assembled to bring back the Jamaica Hope breed.
