DA-SAAD 12 DISTRIBUTES 42 GOATS TO ALABEL, SARANGANI FARMERS

The Special Area for Agricultural Development (SAAD) Program of the Department of Agriculture 12 recently distributed 42 upgraded goats to different farmer groups in Alabel, Sarangani.

These recipients included Alabel Integrated Farmers' Association (AIFA), Tokawal Integrated Livestock Farmers' Association (TILFA), Kahugpungan sa Organikong Mag-uuma sa Alabel (KOMA) and Paco Farmers' Association (PFA). Each association had received 10 goats.

Two goats were also given to the municipal nursery for production purposes where offsprings are intended for the second line farmer-beneficiaries.

During the distribution activity, Alabel Mayor Vic Paul Salarda challenged farmer-recipients to make their project productive. "I will challenge you, the associations as recipients sa project nga mapalambo ninyo ang mga intervention nga gihatag sa Department of Agriculture Region 12 para ma-inspire ang ubang grupo sa mag-uuma ug ayaw kamo padala sa mga tao na nag-encourage to join them against the government kay kundi isa ra atoang flag. Isa ra ang gobyerno na andam mutabang sa tanang katawhan."
