DA-13 validates prospect farmer group for egg production

CARRASCAL, Surigao del Sur -- The personnel of the Department of Agriculture (DA) Caraga, through its Livestock Program, conducted a field validation to Maslog Integrated Farmers Association (MIFA) in Carrascal, Surigao del Sur on October 4, 2023.

The MIFA, accordingly, was a possible recipient of a P2.4 million grant on egg production project under the Livestock Economic Enterprise Development (LEED) Program, which will include housing, stocks, feeds, drugs, and biologics to ensure operation will be based on the cycle. 

The LEED program intends to strengthen the contribution of the livestock and poultry sub-sectors by increasing the income of small-hold farmers through the distribution of grants through livestock and poultry modules. The program implementation includes technical assistance to the beneficiaries to elevate their output to an enterprise level by value-adding and amplifying their production.
