BQT and FFA Training of Trainers for Industry experts
October 5 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
The De-bushing Advisory Service (DAS) is currently carrying out a series of Training as Trainers (ToT) and user training in Bush Biomass Quantification Tool (BQT) and Feed Formulation Application (FFA). The BQT was developed with the aim to help farmers with correct bush biomass quantification and sustainable bush thinning in order to achieve rangeland restoration and add value to bush biomass products. The FFA is aimed at guiding users on formulating affordable and nutritional balanced rations, lowering the risks posed to animals when bush feed is formulated on a trial-and-error basis.
This training of trainers (ToT) is targeted towards biomass industry experts, public and private extension officials and technical advisors. The training will focus on the in-depth use of the BQT excel sheet, practical field data collection, data entry, and reporting as well as an understanding of the web-based bush feed formula application and its practical use.
