Jaffna Dairy Farmers Receive Formal Training in A Pura
[Updated :: 2010-12-19 16:24:24 Hours]

Eleven Jaffna farmers, who successfully completed a residential training course on dairy farming at Seeppukulama Agriculture Training Centre in Anuradhapura, returned home this weekend.

With blessing of Commander of the Army Lieutenant General Jagath Jayasuriya, Commander Security Forces Jaffna (SF-J) Major General Mahinda Hathurusinghe has implemented many livelihood promoting projects for the people in the north. On this concept, Civil Affairs and Public Relations Office Jaffna arranged this one month training with coordination of the Department of Animal Products and Health. On the other hand, this is an effort of the Army to revitalize the fallen dairy farming in Jaffna through which agriculture economy in the peninsula could be developed.

Ten male farmers and one female selected from different areas in Jaffna were provided free transport by the SF-J to Seeppukulama where they attended the course which lasted from 16th November to 16th December. During the stay, trainees were provided free food and lodging by the farm authorities.

On their return to the Civil Affairs Office, farmers expressed their satisfaction about the programme and experience they shared with twenty seven other Sinhalese trainees from the south. The farmers extended their thanks to the Army for creating such valuable opportunities for Jaffna farmers. It was the first time a team of ordinary farmers received such training at a training centre in the south.

Four soldiers from the SF-J also followed the same course with them. All participants were awarded valuable certificates at the end of the course.
