DA brings backyard chicken raising practices
by DA release

Department of Agriculture Sec. Emmanuel F. Piñol is seeking to revive the traditional raising of chickens in the farms through a Nationwide Backyard Chicken Raising (NBCR) Program.

Piñol announced during a farmers’ forum on May 10 in Tabuk City, Kalinga that the DA encourages Filipinos to raise their own food to lessen the country’s dependence on imported food.

“It is ironic that even upland people need to go to the city to buy eggs, when they can raise their own chickens,” Piñol said.

He said a nationwide immunization and vaccination program for chickens would be imposed “before we start distributing native chickens.”

Piñol assured local government officials of the delivery of one unit of multiplier farm to increase the number of native pigs in the province.

He encouraged local government officials to plant trichanthera as an alternative ingredient for animal feeds as he promised to provide Kalinga 50 native pigs – five males and 45 females. These will be taken from the DA farm in Tiaong, Quezon, he said.

“In my farm, I am using trichanthera and sometimes mix it with husks and my pigs really grew healthy and heavy,” he added.

Piñol also allotted P50 million for the implementation of the Production Loan Easy Access program in the province.

He also visited the 15-kilometer farm-to-market road that connects Bulanao and Amlao. The project, which costs P196M, is funded under the Philippine Rural Development Project and is expected to be completed this year.

DA-Cordillera also awarded P2M worth of farm assistance to three farmers group in Balawag, Tabuk City.
