ATI launches SAO on swine production in Mt Province
by Juliet B. Saley / PIA

BONTOC, Mountain Province – The Agricultural Training Institute-CAR in partnership with the Provincial Veterinary Office and Radyo Natin launched its School-on-the-Air (SOA) on swine production.

The program started June 4 over Radyo Natin, Bontoc 100.9 FM at 6-6:30 p.m.

There are 300 individuals from Bauko, Besao, Bontoc, Sabangan, Sadanga and Sagada who enrolled in the program.

The radio program which is held every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday is anchored by Faith Pec-ao and Dr. Josephine Dao-wan of the Provincial Veterinary Office. It will have 28 episodes for three months.

Pec-ao said since only participants of this municipality can monitor the live discussion, topics to be discussed for the week shall be recorded, saved in a pen drive and to be distributed to the SOA focal coordinators of the different municipalities. Participants shall set a schedule where all of them are present so they can listen to the recorded lectures.

After three months, participants will be given training completion certificates. ATI will also give awards and incentives to topnotchers per municipality and topnotchers province-wide based on the result of their pre test, post test, quizzes and completeness of their notebook.

ATI Assistant Regional Director Myrna Santa Maria said that the SOA on swine production is the very first SOA on livestock that the ATI implemented in the province.

She said the SOA is timely given the recent order of the Department of Agriculture banning the importation of pork meat products.

The SOA is an extension modality being used by ATI in disseminating information and technology to its stakeholders particularly the farmers. It is a tool in disseminating technology and information because of its wide coverage.

With a limited budget, participants in the SOA need not travel to attend a classroom type lecture. Participants, while listening through the radio can also do other household chores, Aromin explained.

She said the only problem they encountered is few listenership.

To address this, the ATI provided two radios per municipality to be used by the participants in monitoring the topics to be discussed during the SOA, Aromin said.
