DA-CAR Regional Executive Director Cameron Odsey and Governor Dr. Melchor Daguines Diclas turned over some 49 goats and eight pigs to the beneficiaries of the Recovery Program of DA on Wednesday, Feb. 2. The recipients of the said assistance are livestock farmers who were affected by the onslaught of monsoon rains in 2021. They were identified through reports consolidated by the Provincial Veterinary Office from the different municipal LGUs. Through the same program, some 300 bags of feeds were also given to the beneficiaries of the swine repopulation program who received pigs from the agency last year.
