On August 29-30, 2023, selected faculty from the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources, through the Extension Services Division, facilitated a training on Basic Swine Production, Health, and Waste Management at the SEAL Farm in Cagmanaba, Ocampo, Camarines Sur.
This training aimed to capacitate the participants on essential concepts of swine production, such as swine nutrition, health management, facility design, and breeding practices. The particpants gained knowledge needed in swine production; whether beginners in the field or aiming to enhance their existing skills. The benefits of this training are multi-fold: participants will learn to optimize herd health, increase productivity, and implement efficient management practices that align with industry standards.
The hands-on training approach also enables experiential learning, allowing participants to apply theoretical knowledge in actual practices. As a result, our participants will emerge better prepared to contribute to the swine industry’s growth, improve their operations, and positively impact the broader agricultural community.
Present during the activity, faculty members from the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources, Department of Animal Science, Carmencita I. Portugal, Hazel A. Isiderio, Neil V. Cordenete, Jose N. Pallega, and Ma. Luisa U. Lanzuela. Also, the BSA Program Chairperson, Dr. Emma G. Jarcia. The president of the LACASAN Women’s Organization, Jocelyn Hernandez, and the Farmer Scientist/ Farm Owner of SEAL Farm, Inc., Carlito P. Aquino. | 𝘙𝘦𝘱𝘰𝘳𝘵 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘱𝘩𝘰𝘵𝘰𝘴 𝘧𝘳𝘰𝘮 𝘔𝘴.
