PVO gives poultry animals

BY ADRIAN P. NEMES III

Farm manager Regen Besa and Reynic Alo, MUAD Negros executive director, received free-range chicken and pekin duck from the Provincial Livestock Breeding Center and Dairy Farm in La Granja, La Carlota City recently*

Several poultry animals were donated to the Muad-Negros organization by the provincial government recently, Provincial Veterinarian Renante Decena said.

Decena said that among the poultry animals distributed were 200 heads of free-range chicken and 100 heads of pekin duck that were received by Muad Negros executive director, Reynic Alo.

He said the dispersed animals were of high-quality stocks and seen to boost the backyard free-range production in the locality under the province’s flagship Abanse Negrense Animal Livelihood Program, to augment the livelihood of animal raisers.

Decena added that it is also expected to increase the income of the recipient federation though egg and meat production and could be a readily available source of protein for each household.

As one of the objectives of the Abanse Negrense Animal Livelihood Program, the recipient-federation will strive to increase the number of animals in order to re-disperse the same to their members. It is also aimed to boost pekin duck dispersal in the province on top of other livestock and poultry animals, he added.

MUAD Negros is a federation of farming groups, NGOs, and community-based organizations working to promote sustainable farming and into livestock and poultry-raising.

The province has established 15 free-range chicken and 10 pekin duck multiplier farm projects, in partnership with recipient local government units.

LGUs with FRC multiplier farms are Salvador Benedicto, San Carlos City, Toboso, Sagay City, Cadiz City, Manapla, EB Magalona, Bago City, La Carlota City, La Castellana, Hinigaran, Himamaylan City, Candoni, and Hinoba-an, while LGUs with pekin duck multiplier farms include Cadiz City, Sagay City, EB Magalona, Valladolid, San Enrique, Pontevedra, Himamaylan, Isabela, Cauayan, and Sipalay City.

Decena said the establishment and operation of multiplier farms is a continuing project of the provincial government through the Provincial Veterinary Office, in consonance with the Abanse Negrense Development Agenda, with the goal to capacitate LGUs with production facilities and breeder animals for genetic improvement.

He said the PVO aims to assist not only individual raisers but also associations/federations in uplifting the economic status of their members.*
