The Department of Agriculture- National Dairy Authority (DA-NDA) in partnership with Phil Maize, Northern Mindanao Federation of Dairy Cooperative (NMFDC), and the Local Government Unit (LGU) of Misamis Oriental launched its Corn Silage Production Project at Misamis Oriental Provincial Agricultural Development Complex (MOPADC), Ani-e, Claveria, Misamis Oriental on February 9, 2022.
Through the project, DA-NDA aims to provide an opportunity for farmers to store high quality forage to maintain high levels of animal production and to further increase their profitability.
The launching of the project was also seen to be timely especially since the dry season is approaching and could have an impact on forage quality and forage quantity.
With this, DA- NDA also underscores the importance of farmers’ proactivity in terms of over-all dairy farm management.
Gracing the event were NDA Officer-in-Charge, Administrator Farrell Benjelix C. Magtoto, NDA Northern Mindanao Department Manager Jester John P. Jadap, DA-10 Regional Technical Director Carlota S. Madriaga, Provincial Agriculturist of Misamis Oriental Jose Apollo Y. Pacamalan, corn farmers of Claveria, dairy farmers of Misamis Oriental, and other stakeholders.
The launching, which was organized by the NDA-NMD, highlighted the dairy agency’s commitment to building strong partnership with the corn sector in line with the Department’s OneDA Reform Agenda.
