Neg. Occ. to adapt tech
for sheep raising

The Negros Occidental provincial government  will  adopt  technology that will boost  sheep production in breeding centers in the province, a Capitol press release said.

Owners of Jolisa Agribusiness Corp. based in General Santos City represented by Richard and Joven Chua, met with Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. at the Capitol in Bacolod City Monday.

While in Negros Occidental they shared their experience in agricultural and livestock production in General Santos, which include palay and corn farming production, integrated with livestock technology, as well as their post harvest facilities.

Provincial Veterinarian Renante Decena said that the Chuas also visited the cattle and sheep breeding facilities at the  Murcia Breeding Center and at the University of the Philippines – Los Baños  Breeding Center in La Granja, La Carlota City.

Jolisa is a producer of the Damara Dorper Sheep breed that is being propagated in breeding centers in Negros Occidental.

Currently, the provincial government is establishing a linkage with them for technology development in Negros Occidental, Decena added.*
