Native pigs awarded to Ifugao village livestock raisers

BANAUE, Ifugao, March 16 (PIA) -- Native pig production may soon be a source of income for Ifugao farmers.

 

Personnel of the Bureau of Animal Industry (BAI) and the National Swine and Poultry Research and Development Center (NSPRDC) distributed this week 26 heads of native pigs to livestock raisers of Barangays Ducligan here and in Julongan, Kiangan. This fulfills the their promise when  they conducted training on native pig raising and management in May last year to promote   that there is money in native  hog raising and is a viable  income generating project for the people of these two barangays.

Thirteen pigs were awarded to six farmer beneficiaries each of barangays Ducligan and Julongan who will raise them.  When the animals bear piglets, they will also give piglets to the other farmers   who did not receive a dispersal and the pass on-scheme continues to other interested farmers.

Provincial Veterinarian James Gopeng who told the village farmers during the awarding ceremony program to utilize this program to uplift their economic situation and to obey faithfully the provisions of the contract they signed for the success of this endeavor and not to treat it as merely a dole out from the government.
