By May 21, 2023Business

THE Department of Agriculture-Regional Field Office 1 (DA-RFO1) awarded P77 million to the United Association of Pangasinan Swine Grower, Inc. (UAPSG) in San Fabian town on May 9 at the Capitol Resort Hotel in Lingayen, Pangasinan.

The assistance, under the Integrated National Swine Production Initiatives for Recovery and Expansion (INSPIRE), is intended for the DA’s recovery and repopulation program for the hog sector beset by the African Swine Fever (ASF).

DA-RFO1 regional executive director (RED) Annie Bares said the project will enable hog raisers to move on from the ill-effects of ASF in Ilocos Region.

Karen Paningbatan, DA-RFO1’s Livestock Banner Program focal person, thanked the UAPSG for complying with all the required documentation for the disbursement of the INSPIRE project.

Fourteen sites in Districts 2 to District 6 were identified as recipients of the allocation.

Each site has a P5.5 million allocation for the provision of piglets, feeds, and other inputs. (PIA Pangasinan)
