MESA, A.R  and  MACHADO, Hilda. Training of producers and management staff for the adoption of sustainable animal production technologies. Pastos y Forrajes [online]. 2009, vol.32, n.1, pp.1-1. ISSN 0864-0394.

Training the human capital is extremely important for the adoption of sustainable technologies, because it demands having an adequate vision and the necessary knowledge to ensure the sustainability of animal production systems, through a program adjusted to their productive needs. The objective of this work was to determine the training needs in seven Basic Units of Cooperative Production (UBPC). They were: 9 Caballerías and El Zapato (from the Martí Livestock Production Enterprise); Fe del Valle (Gusev Livestock Production Enterprise); La Prueba (Matanzas Genetic Enterprise), all in Matanzas province; El Negrito (from the Cumanayagua Livestock Production Enterprise), Aguadita (Rodas Livestock Production Enterprise) and Aguada (Aguada Livestock Production Enterprise), belonging to Cienfuegos province. In order to visualize the technical-productive and environmental situation of the UBPCs, the MARPS Methodology was used. The determination of the training needs was made according to the andragogy methods, which are based on the different processes that occur in the organizations. The ecosystem and human welfare did not exceed 50%. From the analysis of the FODA matrix, training strategies were elaborated and the different topics were proposed, such as: animal reproduction, pasture agrotechnique, animal management and feeding, as they are the ones that define the UBPC's development, for which the fulfillment of these training activities should achieve positive impacts on livestock production.
