Glan gets P1.1-M hogs and vet products to recover from ASF

GLAN, Sarangani (November 16, 2021) – The Department of Agriculture Regional Office 12, the Provincial Government of Sarangani and the Municipal Government of Glan distribute a total of 66 hogs, 220 bags of feeds and 22 sets of biologics on November 9 in an activity dubbed as “Babay ASF.” The cost of the sentinel pigs, feeds and other veterinary products that were distributed to the identified growers whose hogs were infected by the African Swine Fever (ASF) had totaled to P1.1 million. Each hog costs P9,000, each bag of feeds costs P1,700, and the 22 sets of biologics costs P600. Dr. Bernard Cababat, OIC provincial veterinarian, disclosed that from their target 100 recipients, “66 pa lang ‘yung ating na distribute because we are still waiting for the supplier” to complete the delivery but rest assured, he said, “on the first week of December or before this month ends, madi-distribute na natin ‘yung remaining hogs and vet products doon sa beneficiaries natin.” (Jake Narte-Joshua John Pantonial/SARANGANI PROVINCIAL INFORMATION OFFICE)
