Likewise, a capacity building was conducted on Swine Production, Care & Management by the department in partnership with OPVet and PGA led by Governor Joy Bernos. It was attended by 74 eligible agrarian reform beneficiaries who are members of Lusuac Multipurpose Cooperative.

Engr. Miles Hall, Supervising Agrarian Reform Program Officer said “21 municipalities are under the Agrarian Reform Areas and the department has been conducting trainings for agrarian reform beneficiaries aiming to enhance their skills for higher productivity and profitability”.

Similar trainings will be scheduled with other eligible agrarian reform beneficiaries in the future.
