DA-PCC’s services, best practices highlighted at PH Expo 2024

The DA-Philippine Carabao Center (DA-PCC), along with nine other agencies under the Department of Agriculture (DA), showcased their programs and services during the three-day Philippine Livestock and Aquaculture Expo 2024 held at the World Trade Center in Pasay City.

Under the theme “Harnessing Innovation and Technology for Sustainable Farm Development,” DA-PCC exhibited innovations for development during the event.

During the opening program on May 22, 2024, Honorable Senator Francis “Tol” Tolentino and DA Under Secretary for Livestock, Deogracias Victor Savelliano, emphasized innovation as a key driver in advancing the livestock industry.

Highlighting innovation, the DA-PCC booth presented the agency’s three banner programs (Genetic Improvement Program, Research for Development, and Carabao-based Enterprise Development Program), products developed to increase farm productivity, the Dairy Roadmap for 2020-2030, and goals for the carabao industry.

Among the agency’s developed products aimed at increasing farm productivity and adoption rates of farm-based practices are A2 Choice, Buro Booster, eRS, VeriSire, QuickCare, and BlockMate.

The results of these efforts were packaged in the form of knowledge products such as magazines and newsletters for public consumption. These materials contain success stories of the agency’s assisted farmers and recent developments in research.

These significant achievements of the agency were presented during the livestock forum on May 22-23, 2023, by DA-PCC experts.
