A four-member delegation from the Sultanate of Oman visited the National Dairy Development Board (NDDB) in Anand last week to explore the possibility of cooperation between the two to enrich dairying in Oman.
The delegation led by Ali Mohammad Salim Al Kalbani, advisor of the livestock in the office of Secretary to the Ministry of Agriculture from Sultanate, and Khalifa Salim Mohammed Al Kiyumi, advisor of the agriculture research in the office of Secretary to the Agriculture, visited NDDB between January 16-19, said the Board in a statement issued Monday.
The delegation held discussions with NDDB chairman Amrita Patel and showed "particular interest in understanding the producer institutions which NDDB is promoting and to assess their relevance to Oman as the government is anxious to support farmers with cattle in remote parts of their country who do not have access to a market," the release added.
They were also briefed about the research and development undertaken by NDDB in the areas of animal breeding, animal nutrition and animal health.
