DA NorMin gives out forage seeds to livestock farmers

CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY (PIA)–To improve farmers’ livestock production amid the threat of COVID-19, the Department of Agriculture (DA)-10 continues to provide forage seeds thru its Livestock Program in Northern Mindanao.

Local government units and walk-in clients received forage seeds such as Flemengia, Rensonii and Indigofera, known as good goat feeds.

Individual farmers may avail one packet each, good for one hectare, while farmer-associations may avail one pack of forage seeds containing 10 packets each which are produced by the agency’s research stations and funded by the Forage Development Program.

Livestock Program Coordinator Ma. Lourdes M. Sypiecco said the leguminous forage is rich in protein which is vital in the growth and production of livestock.

Interested clients may visit the DA-10 office to avail free forage seeds at a first come, first served basis. (DA10/PIA10)
