Day-old chicks given to typhoon victims in Mountain Province
by Erwin S. Batnag

BONTOC, Mountain Province – The provincial government through the Provincial Veterinary Office (PVO) distributed 7,000 day-old chicks to 380 families whose livelihood were affected by typhoons Ompong and Rosita last year.

Acting Gov. Bonifacio Lacwasan, Jr. who is also the Provincial Risk Reduction and Management Council (PDRRMC) chair, said the chick dispersal project was funded by the PDRRM Office.

He said the PDRRMO and PVO allotted P700,000 for the program.

Aside from the chicks, booster feeds were also given to the beneficiaries.

The recipients were encouraged to engage in egg and chicken meat production from the livelihood package that they received.

“The chick dispersal is an aid from the provincial government for you to also help yourselves. It is your duty to develop it,” Provincial Veterinarian Rodelio Bagawi said.

Before the distribution, Veterinarian Josephine Daowan oriented the recipients on how to care for the day-old chicks.

She said that while some feeds can make the animals grow faster and bigger, this doesn’t guarantee reproduction and egg-laying.

Bagawi meanwhile advised the beneficiaries to transport the chicks in an air-conditioned vehicle or during the colder time of the day to ensure the chicks’ survival.

He encouraged the other attendees to engage in animal and goat milk production as additional livelihood.

“Aside from the technical assistance, animal vaccines and supply assistance that may be given to entrepreneurs by our office, you can also avail of major assistance from other funding agencies like the Department of Agriculture,” Bagawi said.
