Several successful consultancy projects

 

Broiler Farm Management in West Java and Sulawesi, Indonesia 

From January 2015 to January 2017, Aeres Training Centre International gave a series of targeted trainings about stall equipment, which included closed water and ventilation systems. We executed these trainings on behalf of the Indonesian Ministry of Economic Affairs, Ministry of Agriculture, and Larive (Food Tech Indonesia). In cooperation with van Eck Industrial hygiene, we taught open-house broiler farmers in West Java and Sulawesi how to expand on their activities and realize improved (financial) results. To strengthen our trainings, we developed the curriculum and poultry training programs, and consulted on the implementation of small-scale equipment. Key training elements included poultry house design, water supply, and ventilation. Next to that, we also taught the farmers about the applied management of flock monitoring and litter management. 

 

Capacity Building in Animal Logistics of Poultry and Livestock, Indonesia 

Aeres Training Centre International is involved in an on-going institutional development project for the Faculty of Animal Science at Bogor Agricultural University in Indonesia. We have undertaken this project on behalf of Nuffic, the Indonesian Ministry of Economic Affairs, Maastricht School of Management, and IPB University of Bangor. Started in November 2014, this project is scheduled to last until November 2018. Throughout this project, our goal is to develop gender sensitive education and training in poultry and livestock animal logistics, based on the current labor market needs. We carry out gender sensitive research in poultry and livestock animal logistics that is relevant to the needs of the sector, and we actively promote the importance of animal logistics in poultry and livestock. This promotion includes gender dimensions involving private and public stakeholders of the labor market and university alumni. To date, we have redefined and developed new curricula on animal logistics, based on labor market needs and the description of competences in cooperation with IPB Bogor. In addition, we have trained and educated the university faculty on updated animal logistics. 

 

Food security, safety, and logistics in the poultry chain of Indonesia

The main goal of this project was to improve the efficiency of the Indonesian poultry chain from farm level to retail, especially in the West Java province. On behalf of the Indonesian Ministry of Economic Affairs, Ministry of Agriculture, WUR, and Larive International, Aeres Training Centre International undertook this project from 2013 to 2016. We taught project management, livestock training, project identification and development, and practical skills training. Next to that we also developed a stronger curriculum and TOT programs.
