PCC eyes carabao upgrading prog for Bohol’s district 1

CORTES, Bohol, Aug. 3 (PIA) -- Did you know that a crossbred milking carabao can give you between 6 to 12 liters of milk everyday, compared to three liters from a native?

With Bohol now embarking on a milk feeding program in partnership with the National Nutrition Council (NNC) and a Provincial Milk Feeding Program targeted to supplement the intakes of malnourished children, the Philippine Carabao Center (PCC) in support of the National Dairy Authority (NDA) is eyeing to supply as much carabao milk to arrest the nutrition deficiency among Boholano kids. 

Speaking at the Kapihan sa PIA on Thursday, PCC at the Ubay Stock Farm Office Officer in Charge and center Chief Dr. Gondolino Bajenting shared that aside from putting up the supply to support the supplemental milk feeding for preschool and elementary kids, dairy also offers a handsome alternative income for livestock farmers in milk sales.

MORE INCOME FOR DISTRICT 1 FARMERS.  PCC OIC and center chief Dr. Gondolino Bajenting (left) and information officer Leinefe Aton (right) shared at the Kapihan sa PIA the ways in which the PCC can help local livestock farmers upgrade their local native carabao stocks so they can join in the dairy production dream of making Bohol the country’s dairy capital.

“With about P500 a day income per carabao head at P50 per liter, owning two or more dairy carabao heads hand in more ready daily cash for the family,” Bajenting said.

“That even does not count the calf, which can be sold for another P30,000 to P40,000 after a few months,” he continued as he discussed programs that his agency can help farmers increase their agricultural productivity in less time.

For a few minutes of feeding the carabao and milking it every day, you could earn that income, he added.

"We at the PCC commit to improve the future of our farmers using the government’s carabao upgrading program," he said. 

By upgrading program, the PCC has two approaches: using Artificial Insemination (AI) to produce cross-bred calves and the Bull Loan Program where the government carabao authority lends to a farmer or an organization with a good number of female carabaos in their catchment area, a purebred murrah bull, to physically impregnate native female carabaos and improve local stocks.

As to the physical stature, a native carabao is inferior in size and in meat output while a crossbred or purebred produces twice to three times milk, that upgrading native stocks can largely help in seeking out milk to supply Bohol’s needs and the needs of its neighboring islands, including the country, Bajenting continued.

Already running a good service in Bohol’s district two and three where there are already towns with 80 percent to 85 percent upgraded breeds following years of successful AI and Bull Loan program implementation, the PCC is now stretching its arms to the island’s first district.

“In areas where bringing a bull to copulate with a female in heat is a challenge, the PCC has technicians ready to dispense AI services,” the PCC head said.   

The farmer owner of the carabao in heat must know the signs that the female carabao is already in its 18-21 days fertility cycle, because the heat does not last that long, it will be off after 18-21 hours if the female is not copulated, he explained.

As soon as he notices the signs that she is in heat, he must call a PCC technician or must inform the Municipal Agriculture Office so a livestock technician can come to administer the AI.

He said the technician’s services could also include the AI administration, pregnancy diagnosis and the delivery assistance, of which the farmer pays the technician a minimal amount which can be payable as the carabao is calving.   

On the other hand, in areas where there are in the vicinity of over 50 female carabaos, the PCC may lend to one or a farmers group a purebred bull to physically face the challenge.

One good thing about the Bull Loan Program is that the individual or association may keep the bull to themselves if they have accomplished 50 calves delivered in the catchment through the services of the bull.

The bull keeper, however, has to ensure he could provide a good supply of forage grass so feeding the bull is easy, and that they must build for the bull a resting shed to keep it from exposure to sun or rain which can make it sick.

For more information about the PCC programs, PCC urges interested adoptors to visit the PCC at the Ubay Stock Farm or contact Dr. Glen Bajenting at 09451193998. (rahc/PIA-7/Bohol)

Kung narito ka ngayon. Marahil ay isa ka sa mga napadpad o mas magandang sabihin ay isa ka sa marites na nakatambay sa page ng mga kakampinks. Kung tama ako, para sayo talaga to!  Para sa mga PULAHAN. Wala ba kayong page na nagmamahal sa inyo kaya andito kayo sa page ng mga kakampinks? :) Salamat pa rin sa pagdalaw kahit ang purpose niyo talaga ay ang ibash kami. ✌️

Bakit Uto-Uto ang mga Pulahan?

Yung tipong habang tumitingin ka sa feed mo may nakita kang nag-share ng mga conspiracy theory. Bakit ba naeenganyo sila? Paniwalang paniwala sila. Basahin ang maikling kasagutan tungkol dito. It makes them feel special and different. It gives them a feeling of being better than others, of having their eyes opened to a 'truth' that others don't see. That's why some call non-believers 'sheeple.' I think it's similar to the feeling we get whenever we learn an obscure yet interesting piece of trivia. The thought of "No one else knows it!" I also think conspiracies appeal to the way humans think, especially now. A desire to search for patterns. There has to be reason and purpose for anything. But this is not right! I still blame the lack of the fundamental research skills that needs to be taught in school. I believe you get to have a full subject on your 4th year, but investigative skills and fact checking should be honed at a young age.
