Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. said yesterday that the aim of Negros Occidental is to raise its cattle stock from 65,000 heads today, to 1 million heads in ten years’ time.
The provincial government is supporting the development of the cattle industry because it will be a good source of income, especially for the less privileged, Marañon said at the opening of the 2015 national cattle congress at the Bacolod Pavillon Hotel and Resort.

Dumaguete cannot afford
additional funds for elderly
BY JUANCHO GALLARDE
Dumaguete City cannot afford to allocate additional funds for senior citizens, City Mayor Manuel Sagarbarria said recently.
Sagarbarria was responding to recommendations and proposals from the Federation of Senior Citizens in Dumaguete, headed by George Villamor, to extend yearly allowances to the senior citizens in Dumaguete to be released in December, instead of the burial assistance.
In gatherings of senior citizens in the city, Villamor had said that he is in favor of changing the burial assistance to living allowance for each senior citizen so they can make use of it while still alive.
