Some 1,591 dairy goats from Australia arrived at the Clark International Airport, Pampanga, on May 18, 2021. These animals are currently quarantined at JJK Farm, Magalang Pampanga, before distributing to farmer recipients in Luzon who passed the technical evaluation conducted by the Department of Agriculture-National Dairy Authority (DA-NDA).

This followed the arrival of 1,294 imported dairy goats at General Santos International Airport, General Santos City, last April 5, 2021, which are intended to be distributed to farmer recipients in Mindanao and Visayas.

This animal importation is part of DA-NDA’s project, Intensified Community-Based Dairy Enterprise Development, which aims to build up herd numbers, enhance local milk production, and increase the average family income of dairy farmers.
