DA-BAI allocates P32.5-M for livestock production in Antique

By: Annabel Consuelo Petinglay

SAN JOSE DE BUENAVISTA, Antique – The Department of Agriculture-Bureau of Animal Industry (DA-BAI) has allocated PHP32.5 million to the province of Antique through the Provincial Veterinary (ProVet) Office for livestock production, particularly in Barangay Tubudan, San Remigio town.

ProVet chief Dr. Romeo Magdatu said in an interview Monday that three veterinarians and officials from the DA-BAI have met with Antique Governor Rhodora J. Cadiao and informed her of the budget for the livestock production.

“The veterinarians and officials of the DA-BAI also had an ocular inspection last June 7 on the proposed multiplier farm for the livestock production that would be implemented this year,” he said.

Magdatu said the DA-BAI will assist the provincial government in raising native cattle until the animals multiply and are given to farmers for backyard raising.

“Antique is one of the sources of the native cattle being sold in Batangas City and in other Luzon areas as beef, so the DA-BAI will be helping the farmers raise more native cattle for their livelihood,” he said.

He said that some 15 to 17 hectares of the 30-hectare lot of the ProVet Livestock Center in Barangay Tubudan, San Remigio are being proposed to be converted as pasture area.

“We intend to buy an initial 30 female cattle and some male cattle to be raised in Barangay Tubudan,” he said.

He said the purchase of the cattle and development of the pasture area will be part of the utilization of the DA-BAI fund.

“We still have to decide whether we are going to disperse the native cattle for free to the farmers to raise and multiply,” he said.

Magdatu said they still have to come up with a scheme on how they would disperse the native cattle to the farmers and what the return of investment would be. (PNA)
