Alternative Feed for Rural Chicken Farmers


The organization Royal Palm requested FAVACA's aid to identify a volunteer with expertise and knowledge of innovative vermiculture strategies.

Thus FAVACA sent Patryk Battle, Director of and Lead Educator of the non-profit Living Web Farms, to evaluate available resources and organizations, and to determine practical solutions to alleviate current obstacles.

Increasing Quality and Shelf Life of Yogurt in Nicaragua


The Farmer-to-Farmer Livestock Marketing Project spanning five years from 2013 to 2018 aims to increase access to meat and milk products to various markets, and to provide technical assistance in certification processes, manufacturing of products, and marketing. The company Cooproleche in Nueva Guinea, El Triunfo, Nicaragua sought FAVACA for assistance in improving the quality and shelf life of their yogurt products. Ohio State University Professor Melvin Pascall, who has produced academic scholarship in this field, took two trips this year to Nicaragua from September 7 - 14, and September 28 - October 5.
