Recipients of free-range hens in Bontoc undergo training
by Alpine L. Killa

BONTOC, Mountain Province – Twenty-five individuals in Sitio Doddo, Barangay Talubin of this municipality will undergo six months training on free-range chicken production before receiving at least 10 heads each of free range chicken pullets.

The training was launched with the farmer poultry school (FPS) on free range chicken production on April 30.

Agricultural technologist Sheryl Kate Tumingeb of the Office of the Municipal Agriculturist (OMAG) said free-range production is a system where chickens are raised in a stress-free environment. They are allowed constant access to outdoors that has a natural diet of grains, forages, and insects. This system also provides more fresh air and sunlight to chickens and can minimize the use of antibiotics.

Tumingeb said the training will start on May 29 and the recipients will meet once a week. They will be taught on the management of free-range chicken, housing, breeds of chicken to raise, production management, control of pests and diseases, and records management.

The lecturers are personnel from the municipal government through the OMAG and provincial government through the Office of the Provincial Veterinarian (OPVet).

Administrative Officer IV Ross Kiat-ong of the Omag said the project was made possible by collaborative efforts of the Agricultural Training Institute-Cordillera, OPVet, and OMAG.

Mayor Franklin Odsey thanked the agriculture sector and concerned agencies for bringing government programs closer to the people.  He likewise acknowledged the collaboration of the concerned agencies for the realization of all government programs benefiting the constituents.

He encouraged the recipients to complete the training and maintain and sustain the program as a means to augment their families’ financial needs.

Provincial Veterinarian Rodelio Bagawi thanked the ATI-Cordillera and the municipal government for the fruitful result of collaboration with the provincial government.

He challenged the beneficiaries to complete the six months training, comply with the requirements, and put their dedication and hard work in managing their poultry.

Municipal Agriculturist Renato Falag-ey solicited the commitment of the beneficiaries in the training and in the production and management of free-range chicken pullets to be given to them.

Nancy Ngallawen, one of the beneficiaries, extended her gratitude to the concerned agencies and offices for bringing the program in their place as it will be an additional source of livelihood for them.

She assured their commitment in the training.

The launching of the farmer poultry school on free range chicken production and the training kits, free range chicken pullets, stocks to be provided to the recipients, and the graduation ceremony were funded by the ATI-Cordillera.

The municipal and provincial governments shall provide technical assistance and resource speakers during the training.

The housing and forages for the free-range chicken, and the meals and snacks during the training shall be the counterpart of the recipients.
