Camiguin now allows livestock, poultry shipment

CAMIGUIN (PIA)—The Provincial Government of Camiguin through the Executive Order No. 26 Series of 2020 now lifts the prohibition in the shipping of livestock and poultry effective May 19.

Gov. Jurdin Jesus Romualdo said shipment out of the province of livestock and poultry including their meat, meat products and by products are now allowed as livestock and poultry farmers are clamoring and appealing to the LGU to allow them to sell their animals to traders from the mainland.

“Farmers say such traders are offering comparatively higher farm gate cost than the locals. Thus, it is deemed necessary and appropriate to consider the clamor and appeal of the farmers to help them sustain their livelihood,” Romualdo said.

Through Executive Order No. 13, Series of 2020, shipping of livestock and poultry was prohibited to sustain the food supply in the province to sufficiency level.

On May 16, the province was declared under General Community Quarantine, which means that movement of cargos, especially food products, are allowed into the island. Thus, the food supply is believed to be back to sufficient level. (RTP/PIA10)
