More benefit from poultry production
by Erwin S. Batnag

BONTOC, Mountain Province – The Provincial Veterinary Office reported that the number of poultry farmers who are receiving livelihood assistance in the province continues to rise.

Provincial Veterinary Officer Rodelio B. Bagawi said many individuals and organizations have availed of the poultry production program of the government based on the turnout during last Monday’s distribution of 1,500 heads of range chicken to province-wide beneficiaries.

Bagawi said the recent disbursement of chicken is a joint endeavor of the provincial government and the Agricultural Training Institute (ATI) of the Department of Agriculture-CAR as funding agency.

Under the same program, 1,500 heads of itik (ducks) were earlier distributed to the identified beneficiaries last month.

The disbursement is a follow-up activity of the poultry development and production seminar to Mountain Province poultry farmers conducted by the ATI last June. Under the program, identified farmers received 10 female and two male heads of itik with a condition that the first recipients will roll out the same number of chickens or ducks that they received as their share of responsibility to a fellow farmer or neighbor who will also do the same after producing offspring.

Acting Gov. Bonifacio C. Lacwasan, Jr., who led the turnover to its beneficiaries, thanked the ATI for bringing the source of livelihood that will improve the production of local food supply in Mountain Province.

“This will surely boost the poultry industry in our place and will ensure that our constituents will have a steady source of food and livelihood to sustain their families. This is a result of the government’s steadfast efforts to deliver its services to our people. Rest assured that your officials will work hard with our partner agencies to maximize government intervention to improve the status of our constituents,” the governor said.

He added that the program will greatly augment the existing ranged chicks dispersal project of the provincial government that is lodged in its “Barangay Muna” program, where the provincial government annually allots P1.5 million for the purchase of ranged chicks distributed to interested and identified organizations in the province.

He encouraged the recipients to take good care of the poultry package and abide with ATI’s scheme to share to their neighbors upon production.

One of the recipients, Erlinda Copas of Sadanga, who is an officer of a local organization in her place, expressed gratitude to the DA and the provincial government for the livelihood intervention.

“This means a big thing to me and my family and to all the other recipients. I will take good care of the livelihood package and pass the same number of the animal’s offspring to a member of our organization and assure that he/she will do the same scheme so that everyone in our organization will benefit from the program,” she said.
