Cagayan de Oro City – In view of the occurrence of African Swine Fever (ASF) in some parts of the country, the Department of Agriculture RFO 10 (DA-RFO 10) through the Regional Inter-Agency Task Force for African Swine Fever (ASF), requested the assistance of LTFRB in raising awareness on the effects of ASF to the travelling public.

Fifty-six pieces flash drives containing video plugs on ASF prevention protocols were turned over to Regional Director Aminoden D. Guro of the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board 10 (LTFRB-10).

Julesben Ceasar Maquiling and Rhea Villa Chiu, veterinarians of the Regulatory Division of DA-10 handed said items to RD Guro, which will then be played on buses operating in Northern Mindanao to properly guide and educate the riding public on ASF.

“To continually protect Northern Mindanao from the entry of ASF, we are strengthening our info campaign by tapping LTFRB who plays a vital role in disseminating the right information to the riding public,” said OIC-Regional Executive Director Carlene C. Collado of DA-10.

DA’s move aims to heighten information campaign activities to protect the P25 billion hog industry of the region from ASF, which is supported by UNAHCO Inc – Pigrolac who provided the flash drives. #(ATCabig)
