The budget came from the agency’s quick response fund (QRF) for Typhoon Odette, in partnership with the Bohol Provincial Veterinary Office.
Each association received seven to eight sacks of hog grower and three sacks of hog finisher.
Dr. Zeam Voltaire Amper, the regional livestock coordinator of DA-7, said that the feed distribution was based on the conducted damage report caused by the typhoon.
