The Department of Agriculture-10 (DA-10) in partnership with Central Mindanao University (CMU) recently held the groundbreaking ceremony for the Swine Multiplier Farm Project located in Musuan, Maramag, Bukidnon last March 9, 2022. The project aims to aid Northern Mindanao’s swine recovery and repopulation program.

Present during the event were DA Undersecretary for Livestock William C. Medrano, PhD, DA-10 Regional Executive Director Carlene C. Collado and CMU President Jesus Antonio G. Derije, DVM.

The P1.4 million project comprises 1 unit 10-sow level pig pen (with a ratio of 1 male to 10 female highbred cross hogs), 1 unit feed mixer and agri-supplies (feeds, drugs, and biologics). The project is part of the Integrated National Swine Production Initiatives for Recovery and Expansion (INSPIRE) of the National Livestock Program which is intended to speed up the recovery of the hog sector and ensure the availability, accessibility, and affordability of pork and pork products.
