Training on honey prod’n conducted
by Ayra Galanza

The Department of Agriculture Cordillera Livestock Sector conducted a basic and advance training course on beekeeping from July 18 to 20 for participants from the different provinces.

The training involved lectures and a demo in an apiary.

Edmund Benavidez, Saint Louis University Extension Institute for Small Scale Industries Foundation Inc. director, and Patricio Ananayo, retired senior agriculturist, discussed the basics of beekeeping.

Benavidez said one of the many wonders of apiculture is the production of honey.

“Honey never spoils and will last for years. This is possible if the moisture content is kept at a minimum 18 percent and below,” he said.

Allan John Panagan of the DA livestock sector tackled strengthening colonies and the problems encountered, such as pest and diseases. With him were volunteer beekeepers Jimar Lawa, Gregorio Colas Jr., and Nathaniel Acop who discussed harvesting and beekeeping calendar.

“Maintaining strong and healthy colonies is still the best,” Panagan said.

Dr. Jordan Bayudang, veterinarian III from the Bureau of Animal Industry said a veterinary health certificate must first be presented before a shipping permit is issued in the quarantine and transportation of bees.

Paquito Untalan, director of the Cordillera Research and Apiculture Center of the Benguet State University, gave pointers  on equipment and materials on beekeeping, basic carpentry, queen catching, marking and transporting of queen bees.

Dr. Arvin Sobrepena, apiculture veterinarian, and George Bondot, apiary manager of the National Apiculture Research, Training, and Development Institute discussed queen rearing and honeybee products and by-products.

Dr. Anthony Bantog, DA-CAR livestock sector chief, hopes that the training will encourage stakeholders to patronize beekeeping in the highlands.

“The livestock program supports this endeavor and we hope that Cordillera will be a honey producing area,” he added.
