First ever expo on livestock technology starts today
More than a thousand participants are expected to attend the first ever Livestock Technology Expo to be held starting today at the Bohol Cultural Center in Tagbilaran City.
To be held until October 10, the event is part of the continuing initiatives to promote various livestock research and development outputs in the country.
With the theme, “Masaganang Paghahayupan sa Teknolohiyang Maaasahan”, the exposition will be conducted alongside two other events: the 4th National Carabao Conference and the 4th Bohol Milk festival.
The tri-fold affair will serve as a means for meaningful interaction among the participants, who include stakeholders and value chain players in the livestock industry, and will also serve as a source of dissemination of significant information, invaluable know-how, and ideas about practical technologies and improved practices on livestock production.
In cooperation with the Provincial Government of Bohol, the events will be led by the Department of Agriculture (DA) and its attached agencies, namely Philippine Carabao Center (PCC), Agricultural Training Institute- International Training Center on Pig Husbandry (ATI-ITCPH), Bureau of Animal Industry (BAI), National Dairy Authority (NDA), and National Meat Inspection Service (NMIS).
