Training course on crop-livestock systems,  Beirut, March 2012Crop-livestock integration is a crucial element in dryland farming systems. ICARDA’s training programs have helped build capacity among researchers, extension staff and farmers in fodder production, management of grazing resources, simple dairy processing and other areas. This month, 19 researchers from four countries completed a 2-week training course conducted in Beirut, Lebanon. The majority of trainees came from Iraq, with the remainder from Syria, Lebanon and Jordan. The course was funded by the Japan International Cooperation Agency.

The course included three modules by ICARDA scientists: sheep/goat breeding and genetics (presented by Dr Aynalem Haile, animal breeder and geneticist), rangeland improvement (Dr Mounir Louhaichi, rangeland ecologist) and dairy safety, quality and processing (Dr Muhi El-Dine Hilali, dairy and animal nutrition specialist).
