Philippines: First batch of restocking piglets
The Philippine provinces of Antique and Iloilo
received a total of 730 piglets as the first beneficiaries of the Department of
Agriculture's (DA) Piglet Restocking Program.
The division of the piglets released to the two provinces were 590 in
Iloilo and 140 in Antique, the DA regional field unit disclosed. The DA has
stated that delivery to other provinces is scheduled in the coming weeks subject
to the availability of stocks.
The restocking aims to provide sufficient
supply of pork to Metro Manila during the last quarter of the year and address
the market requirement this Christmas season.
The DA, through the
Livestock Development Council (LDC), has allocated P4,526,000 for piglet subsidy
to identified livestock raisers in the region.Click here for the free Pig
