Just the rooftop of the barn

๐Ÿ’ธ The Department of Agriculture (DA) in the Philippines has approved a grant to fund the establishment of a bio-secured and climate-controlled pig multiplier facility in the city of northern Legazpi.

    • The idea is that the project will help stabilize the price of pork in the market. That’s because it will contribute an additional supply of pigs – it’ll be a safer place to raise pigs, ensure they’re free from disease, and sustain the pig industry in the community.

๐Ÿ” This is just the tip of the iceberg (or the rooftop of the barn?), as the Philippines government continues to reveal projects meant to rescue the ASF-hit pig industry, such as virology-related projects. To learn more about the efforts against ASF in the Philippines, click here.
