The Barbados Egg and Poultry Producers Association (BEPPA) will be hosting their first meeting for 2023 on Saturday, January 07 at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre (LESC). The meeting is to discuss the state of the industry coming off a challenging 2022, with some farmers losing up to 25% of stock because of hot weather, and to chart a way forward. Registration starts at 9:00 am and the meeting will be called to order at 10:00 am. All BEPPA members are asked to attend. #bas #basonevoice #beppa
The issue of the introduced green monkey in Barbados is a frequent topic of discussion nationally. While the green monkey population must be controlled to ensure that Barbados has a thriving agricultural sector, the monkey is also an interesting component of Barbados’ rather depleted biodiversity and is a tourist attraction.
