As part of the Mati Dairy Development Plan which is implemented through the partnership of the Department of Agriculture – National Dairy Authority (NDA) and the City Local Government Unit (LGU) of Mati, a two-day training on Milk Processing was held by the NDA-Southern Mindanao Department on February 2, 2022 at Mati’s Dairy Processing Plant, Mati City, Davao Oriental.
The training was attended by 10 participants composed of dairy farmers and staff of the Mati City Veterinary Office.
In 2021 and 2022, the city LGU has allocated P5 million for the construction of a milk processing plant and for the procurement of drugs and biologics, and a refrigerated van as part of its dairy development plan.
