Nearly 500 goat producers from 25 communities in Bong County are using improved animal husbandry to raise their goats. These goat farmers are receiving support from the USAID Food and Enterprise Development (USAID FED) program for Liberia.USAID FED has trained 54 Community Animal Health Workers (CAHW), who are mainly females. Recently, USAID FED constructed 33 shelters out of 75 goats shelters targeted for construction in Bong County.Liberian farmers are accustomed to the traditional ways of raising goats where the animals are largely left unattended. The aim of the program is to increase the production of goats and make animal farming a more profitable business for Liberian farmers. USAID FED’s interventions will greatly enhance the production of livestock in Bong, Grand Bassa, Lofa and Nimba Counties, where the program is being implemented.Morris Karnuah, USAID FED’s Livestock Officer, said that goat farmers are receptive to the improved ways of raising their animals. “We observed that farmers are happy about the new techniques to raise and care for animals in their communities. [Farmers] provided some of the resources needed to construct …the shelters.”He said that three shelters are constructed in each of the communities. These structures include a kidding house, quarantine shelter and shelter for marketable goats.Karnuah also noted that linking farmers with goat buyers is critical for goat farming. According to him, farmers have to learn to treat raising goats as a business that provides sustainable income increases.“Most traders leave the country to trade for goats in Guinea and Ivory Coast because of [the] lack of sufficient supply of goats in Liberia. With USAID FED’s interventions, [the] mortality rates of kid goats have reduced, giving farmers more goats to sell. Due to the constraint in marketing goats, we have begun to hold series of consultative meetings with both traders and farmers to create the linkage and help [to] build the relationship,” Karnuah stated. Several goat farmers in Bong County expressed very positive feedbacks about the support received from USAID FED when speaking to the Observer Farmer Desk recently on the various farms in their communities.Johnson Douhokpeneh, the head for the Menilele (translates to mean “good things” in the Kpelle dialect) Goat Farmer Association in Gbarnga Siequelleh, Bong County, said that USAID FED’s support is helping to improve their living conditions. He stated that initially, goat farmers had 229 goats but the intervention’s USAID FED had increased their goat population to 273 goats.“We are impressed [by] the new ways we have been taught to raise our goats for marketing. This method has reduced kid mortality,” he said happily.CAHW Esther Miller said she is pleased to provide veterinary services because she can see that, in addition to helping the animals, she also helps the families who own the animals.USAID FED currently supports 2,060 goat farmers in Bong, Lofa, Nimba and Grand Bassa counties.The USAID FED Program for Liberia aims to reduce hunger and promote food security for Liberians through increased agricultural productivity and profitability in rice, cassava, vegetable and goat value chains. It is implemented in six counties: Bong, Nimba, Lofa, Grand Bassa, Margibi and Montserrado.The United States – as the largest donor and closest ally – is supporting the Liberian priorities to build sustainable local capacity, make a difference in people’s lives, and move towards a shared vision of self-sufficiency and prosperity. For more information please visit. www.usaid.gov. USAID FED is Africa’s largest project under President Barack Obama’s Feed the Future Initiative, which promotes a move away from subsistence and increasing food security by working with public and private bodies, including the Government of Liberia, the private sector, local NGOs and other key stakeholders.

The world does not know it yet–at least this is not at the top of the news, but Ethiopia is speedily becoming one of the world’s emerging economies.This oldest nation in sub-Saharan Africa, known only 20 years ago as a basket case, with millions of starving, emaciated children perilously hanging on to life at the mercy of donors, is today self-sufficient in food. More besides, the country is growing maize (corn), which they do not eat, for export, and sugar, too, though much of their land is drought-afflicted.How did all this happen? The government had a vision that impoverished and backward Ethiopia could be turned around and made a more prosperous country. Instead of putting the vision on the shelf, the government got to work, mobilized the people, trained them SERIOUSLY in every avenue of vocational and technical education and high technology and produced tens of thousands of engineers in all fields. They trained their farmers and gave them the resources to become more successful at farming; and in the Ethiopian army alone there are more than 16,000 engineers. This means the army is not just drilling and learning how to fight war; they are substantially involved in INDUSTRIALIZATION AND NATION BUILDING.Does anyone remember our pre-Armed Forces Day editorial, in which we called on Defense Minister Samukai to train and put the soldiers to work in agriculture and road building? That is what the Ethiopian army is doing–and much, much more.And Liberia, this second oldest nation in sub-Saharan Africa? Liberia must protect it resources and use them for the Liberian people and not allow itself to be exploited by foreign interests. We must get busy adding value to our land and other resources to put ourselves on the international market as major players. The empty holes left in the ground by former “investors” are ample reminder of what we need to do to protect ourselves and advance our own cause. Let those be the lessons that will make us wiser and stronger.Just a few weeks ago the Daily Observer, in an editorial, warned the Liberian government and the Lofa people to leave Wologizi alone. We suggested that the next iron ore agreement Liberia signs should stipulate that a steel plant would be built in Liberia, so that we can start using our own iron to enter the manufacturing phase of development. And we also pleaded with government to renegotiate all extractive concessions agreements, including rubber, with the aim of making use of our rubber for tires, gloves and other products for local consumption and export to other West African countries and beyond.But unfortunately, we now see that the Lofa people seem to be softening on Wologizi. A meeting called by Lofa students at the University of Liberia recently brought in many Lofa stakeholders and they were talking about ensuring that the Lofa people “got something” out of any Wologizi deal. What this tells us is that they are prepared to give away Liberia’s last remaining iron ore mine for promises that will never be fulfilled. The Lofaians will start complaining just as the Nimba people are now complaining against Arcelor Mittal.We hope that the people of Lofa and the Liberian government can see THE BIG PICTURE: save this last iron ore mine for steel manufacturing. This will allow more training and more employment for our people and put money into pockets of many more people in micro business enterprises, just as the Ethiopians have done.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)

Red Hughs GAA News: Senior MenThe men made the short journey to Letterkenny Gaels on Saturday evening. They got off to a great start going 4 points to no score up after ten minutes. The home side settled down and picked off a couple of nice long range points and soon had the gap closed to a single point. The Reds were under a lot of pressure as Gaels stepped up the ante. Gerard Melaugh scored a fine point to settle the Hughs lads down again. It was nip and tuck until the break in a very open and entertaining game. The half time score was Red Hughs 0-7 Gaels 0-6The second half again was a tight and very competitive with both teams playing some great football. The Reds scored the opening point to go 2 points ahead. But the home side once again piled on the pressure and with ten minutes gone in the second half took the lead for the first time 9 points to 8. The Gaels stretched their lead to two before the Reds found another gear and played some of the best football they played so far this season. They stormed into a three point lead scoring 5 points without reply to go three up with five minutes left. But Gaels were not finished just yet and scored the two points in as many minutes to leave a point in it with a minute to go. Thomas Mc Menamin won possession in the middle of the field and went to ground with what seemed to be a certain free for the Reds only to see the Referee giving a free the other way and taken quickly by Gaels as the ref waved play on with Thomas laying injured on the ground. Gaels used it to their advantage to scored the equalising and final point of the game. The final score in a cracking game of football was Red Hughs 0-13 Letterkenny Gaels 0-13Senior ReserveThe reserves also played Gaels reserves in the opening game on Saturday.

But the Hugh’s lads didn’t panic and finished the half strong and went in at half time 0-9 to 1-1 in the lead.The home side took the game to the Reds from the start of the second half and soon the ball in the Reds net once again.

State Republicans groused that Schwarzenegger’s hiring of the former aide to Gray Davis and former executive director of the California Democratic Party is a betrayal of his constituency. Really? Isn’t the constituency of the governor all the residents of California, rather than just the members of one political party? We think so, and so, evidently, does the governor. This is a welcome attempt to reach out to all voters. It affords the Democratic leadership the chance to join the governor in working to solve the state’s problems and heal the rifts caused by the special election.
