Ensuring the good care and maintenance of the animals used in Bóthar's projects is essential to the work that we do. All families participating in Bóthar's projects under go months of training and preparation before receiving their animals. The families are trained in animal nutrition, husbandry and welfare. Bóthar also provides on going veterinary support to the families in the field. Along with our project partners Bóthar have qualified staff in our project countries to monitor farmers long after they have received their animals to ensure that they remain healthy and well cared for.
