The project is called "Small Ruminant Multiplier Farm Integrated Skills and Agricultural Technology Transfer" - short Multiplier Farm. They are now making all preparations so that by the end of the year the facilities are ready to be used for breeding high quality goats both for milk and ultimately meat production. These goats will be distributed to deserving families after the typhoon Haiyan catastrophe to give them a livelihood and thereby a better life to live.
The project is already well under way with the necessary constructions. The renovation of the Training Center that SCM has bought from the city government is complete. They are now setting up a fence around the area where they set up a well for watering of the 10'000 trees and bushes which will be special feed for the Multiplier Farm.
Next step will be to build a goat house to begin with the first high breed goats (Anglo Nubien and Boer goats) which will arrive by the end of October.
