Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. and Vice Gov. Genaro Alvarez Jr. yesterday led the blessing and inauguration of the newly-constructed Negros First Training Center and Paravet Academy that will be a venue for technology transfer and skills enhancement trainings, a press release from the Capitol said.
The two-storey building located in Brgy. La Granja, La Carlota City, is worth P3 million that can accommodate 40-50 participants in the lecture room also has an office and sleeping quarters.
Provincial Veterinarian Renante Decena said that the center’s target beneficiaries are the paravets, livestock and poultry raisers, and other professionals who want to acquire knowledge and necessary skills needed for animal production.
Marañon said La Carlota City has a big potential to be the center of livestock industry, not only in Negros Occidental and Western Visayas but in the whole country, too.
The training center that is adjacent to the Provincial Livestock Breeding Center and Dairy Farm will be managed by the Provincial Veterinary Office.
Fourth District Board Members Jose Benito Alonso and Mae Javellana, and Mayor Juliet Marie Ferrer of La Carlota City were among those present at the inauguration.*
