PVO turns over incubators

The Negros Occidental Provincial Veterinary Office yesterday turned over 12 chicken egg incubators to the Sagay Breeding Center and to the Provincial Livestock Breeding Center and Dairy Farm, La Granja, Lacarlota, Catheryn Narez, PVO poultry coordinator said.

The incubator will be used for hatching kabir eggs. Each unit has 500-egg capacity with 340 hatcheries. They also have automatic turners and thermostats with egg cuddler, Narez said.

Meanwhile, 400 kabir chicks, 30 upgraded does, and 40 piglets for swine fattening poultry animals were distributed in Moises Padilla recently for the Negros First Poultry and Livestock project.

Sixty-nine pastors and poultry, swine, and goat raisers were the beneficiaries of the project, who were also trained on the basics of poultry raising, animal management, artificial insemination, semen collection, and diseases and prevention control, Narez said.

Earlier this month, the provincial government and PVO turned over 680 poultry and livestock animals to Himamaylan, Cauayan, and Sipalay.*LTG
