‘Keep Capitol
sheep inventory low’

BY CARLA GOMEZ

Keep the provincial government-owned sheep inventory low to save on maintenance expenses.

This was the advice of Negros Occidental Vice Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson yesterday to Provincial Veterinarian Renante Decena, who appeared at a Sangguniang Panlalawigan hearing on the proposed provincial government budget for 2014.

Lacson said that during the hearing, Decena informed the SP that the provincial government sheep satellite farm in Sagay City was hit by super typhoon “Yolanda” and 200 heads died because of infrastructure damage and pulmonary problems.

But Decena also informed the SP that sheep imported by the provincial government have locally given birth to more than 700 more.

Lacson said that, ideally, the sheep should be dispersed to local buyers for propagation.*CPG
