With the aim of orienting local producers and turning Tabasco into one of the largest producers of sheep in the Southeast, specialists from the United States, Spain and Mexico speak several lectures during the first international symposium on Tropical Sheep that was inaugurated by Candita Gil Jiménez, rector of the Universidad Juarez Autónoma de Tabasco (UJAT).

In the presence of Jaime Lastra Escudero, Secretary of Agricultural development, forestry and fisheries, who went on behalf of Manuel Andrade Díaz, state constitutional governor, the rector of the highest house of studies said that the appropriate agroecological conditions that the entity and the southeast region, favor the development of this species with great prospects for growth.

The UJAT is committed to promoting research and applying it to the benefit of the region, he added Gil Jiménez at the time of urging producers and government authorities to add efforts to transfer technology, genetic improvement of species, the expansion of marketing systems and the transformation of derivatives such as meat, milk and skin.

In the Ship III of the Tabasco Park, Dagoberto Lara Silks, president of Breeders Asociados of the southeast, said that the Mexican southeast is giving the guideline to start a new phase in the national sheep, so that both producers and technicians and researchers need to join forces to consolidate this sector in its greater potential.

After the inauguration ceremony the papers were lectured, “potential of sheep in grazing conditions”, “profitability of sheep exploitation in the tropics”, “new alternatives for parasitic control in tropical sheep”, “aspects of grazing and fattening production”, “traceability and new feeding methods”.

For today, as of 9:30 hours, the topics “genetic improvement as an alternative to promote and improve the competitiveness in production of sheep meat”, “brucellosis”, “quality in carcasses and cuts of sheep” and “integration in the productive chain” will be discussed.
