Last November 29, 2011, the Office of the Provincial Agriculturist (OPA) sponsored a one-day seminar on Natural Piggery and poultry Farming at the JJ’s Annex, New Calcetta St., Tagbilaran City.
Mr. Warren Tan, a member of the Center for Natural Farming Initiative (CNFI), Saving Health and Environment Movement (SHEMOVE), Natural Piggery Movement and Philippines for natural Farming Inc., was the resource person of the said event. The seminar was attended by 34 participants composing mostly of small scale hog farmers, backyard raisers and Agricultural Officers from the Local Government Units. The activity aimed to promote the adoption of the new innovation in the piggery and poultry industry in the province with the introduction of sustainable agriculture principles.
The natural standards of raising hogs and chicken are found on sustainable and practical approaches considering the available resources and current growing system in the country. It aimed to create a social awareness that naturally-farmed pigs and chicken are healthier and safer since the growing system uses no chemicals and no antibiotics. The participants of the seminar expressed an enormous interest in the technology. An Adhoc committee was created and a list of next activities was prepared by the group. The OPA will serve as the secretariat.
