Last February 17, 2022, the National Dairy Authority – South Luzon Department (NDA-SLD) headed by Officer-in-Charge Manager Dr. Gabriel L. Lagamayo had a courtesy call and dialogue with Oriental Mindoro 2nd Representative Alfonso Umali, Jr.
The meeting tackled the dairy expansion project of Senator Cynthia Villar which includes Congressman Umali’s district as one of the identified areas for dairy expansion. Among the agreements made during the meeting was the inclusion of the first district of Oriental Mindoro in the said project.
Meanwhile, officers of the Bansud Goat and Other Ruminants Raisers Association (BAGORRA) were also present in the meeting. They discussed the establishment of a Milk Processing Plant which will be funded by Congressman Umali as his support to the association’s dairy enterprise.
