MAMBAJAO, Camiguin, Feb 23 (PIA) — Farming families here benefit from the government subsidized veterinary services. The services target to sustain the livestock industry and in support of the food security program.
The project initiates massive vaccination and have served 11,215 farm animals, like cattle, carabao, swine, and goat.
Services include treatment, deworming, castration and artificial insemination (AI) said Louis S. Bollozos, provincial veterinarian.
Last year, he noted more than 7,000 heads have underwent treatment and another 8,500 animals were de-wormed.
For artificial insemination, 130 cattle, eight carabaos, and 517 swine were recorded served by the Provincial Veterinary Office (PVO).
PVO has maintained an animal breeding center that holds parent stocks of livestock animals for production purposes and dispersal.
The breeding center, according to Bollozos, also serves as show window to livestock farmers.(PIA)
