Minister of Agriculture Noel Holder’s education is elite and diverse. After gaining his Secondary Education at Queen’s College (1955 – 1964), he moved on to pursue studies in agriculture, and is the holder of a B.Sc., Agriculture, Leeds University, England-1968.

Other titles he holds are: M.Sc., Animal Nutrition, University of Florida, USA-1972; Fellow, Economic Development Institute (World Bank), Rural Development Projects-1979; Certificate in Computers & Training for Project Management, MASDAR Technology Limited, England-1989.

A true professional, Mr. Holder is not merely academic, as over the years, he has accumulated valuable experience within his domain: International Management Consultant-1994-Present; i-Net Communications Inc., Chief Executive Officer-1999-2011; Livestock Development Company Limited, Guyana-1975-1994-Managing Director; Ministry of Agriculture, Guyana-1973-1975-Production Manager; and Ministry of Agriculture, Guyana-1969-1973-Livestock Officer.

What is very noteworthy is that the minister’s exposure is truly enviable. He rubbed shoulders with leaders of the       Commonwealth Secretariat, Organisation of American States (OAS), Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations (FAO), Department for International Development (DFID - UK), and International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI).

Before entering full time management consultancy in November 1994, Noel Holder was the Managing Director of the Livestock Development Company Ltd. (LIDCO).  This was the largest cattle operation in Guyana, and he was responsible for developing this entity from two ranches into an agri-business organisation, owning and operating four large dairy farms, five ranches (beef), occupying 93,000 hectares with 15,000 head of cattle, a milk processing plant (40,000 liters daily throughput) and a 1,000- acre seed paddy production unit.


Mr Holder’s expertise and experience stretch over 25 years in the identification, preparation and implementation of sustainable agricultural and agri-industrial development projects, and within the field of Agribusiness/Management Consultant.
