Geared towards the continuous production of farm animals, the Department of Agriculture – Regional Field Office 10 (DA-RFO 10) turned over 18 heads of sheep to the local government units (LGU) of Misamis Occiental, earlier today, July 2, 2020.

The three modules with 1:5 male-female ratio per module, was handed to the three government offices of Misamis Occidental, Tangub City, Tudela and Panaon through their respective veterinary and agriculture offices.

DA-RFO 10 Livestock Program coordinator Ma. Lourdes M. Sypiecco shared, the said animals come from the agency’s production center, Malaybalay Stock Farm and will be used as stocks for the multiplier farms of said areas.

“The program aims to boost the livestock production which would translate to the provision of additional income for backyard raisers in the province, especially during these trying times.” she added.

Sypiecco further called for interested applicants of the multiplier farm project and encouraged them to submit project brief and letter of intent addressed to the DA-10’s Regional Executive Director, Carlene C. Collado. # (AMBManto)
