Realize, in the days 17 e 18 of February, the mini course Production of Bulky, Pasture Management and Strategic Food Reserve, an action of the Project Structuring of the Milk Production Chain, the result of our partnership with Bank of the northeast of Brazil (BNB). We also count on the collaboration of ifce (Federal Institute of Education, Science and technology of Ceará) and UFC (Federal University of Ceará), through the Forage Teaching and Studies Center (Neef) of the Center for Agrarian Sciences (CCA).
The formation was divided into moments theoretical and practical, taught by the UFC PhD Professors, Magnus José Cândido and Aníbal Coutinho. About thirty producers participated in the short courses that took place during two days. In the first, the theoretical contents were worked in the auditorium of the IFCE Campus Limoeiro do Norte, on the second day, practical activities took place in the Teaching Unit, Research and Extension (U.S.), in the same municipality.
"For us it is a satisfaction is contributing to this Project, have this contact with the producer and be able to bring him some of the knowledge that we generate at the University and also get from them some demands to feed our day-to-day work. It's a very enriching experience for us too.", emphasizes Magnus José Candide, Professor Doctor of the Department of Animal Science of the UFC.
To Francisco Wellington Gomes, 29, milk producer benefited by the Project in the municipality of Alto Santo, the search for new knowledge will bring good results. "I learned a lot about food management and new crops. I thank you for this opportunity that many do not have, because before we were unable to access this information. Now I believe that we will improve our management, because we saw in theory and practice where we were sinanding and so change", states the also farmer.
In this new phase, producers participate in short courses on topics crucial to the development of this production chain. There have been more than 30 formative meetings, following all the health and safety protocols for the prevention of Covid-19.
