DA, poultry farmers to draft five-year poultry industry dev’t roadmap
In cooperation with poultry and livestock raisers, the Department of Agriculture (DA) is set to formulate a five-year development roadmap for the country’s poultry and livestock industry.
The planning session for the poultry and livestock industries’ five-year development roadmap will be presented to Trade and Industry Secretary Ramon Lopez, Interior and Local Government Acting Secretary Catalino Cuy and Health Secretary Paulyn Ubial.
Piñol said he hopes the development roadmap would include all the wishlist of the poultry industry stakeholders.
This wishlist includes the credit facilities for farmers as well as adequate and effective bio-security programs to prevent any health threats to poultry and humans.
According to Piñol, all of these could be funded starting 2019 through the annual budget of the DA.
