St. Lucia to Boost Livestock Production to Reduce Imports

SAN JUAN – The Ministry of Agriculture of St. Lucia announced Thursday a plan to increase livestock production in order to reduce the island’s bill for food imports.

The initiative centers on improving the Beausejour Agricultural Station.

The overhaul of the station will be implemented by the UN Food and Agriculture Organization, with financing from the India-Brazil- South Africa Fund for Poverty and Hunger Alleviation.

“Towards this end we are considering artificial insemination, and also improving our breeds. We recently received quite a bit of small ruminants to assist us in that vein so that we would produce the animals and then supply them to farmers who can subsequently improve their grades,” Director of Agricultural Services Felix Jaria said.

St. Lucia is an island south of Martinique with a population of about 180,000 people.
