PVO to strengthen cattle
industry of Negros Occ.

The Provincial Veterinary Office aims to strengthen the cattle industry of Negros Occidental through adopting genetically superior breeding, artificial insemination, and embryo transfer technologies this year.

Provincial Veterinarian, Dr. Renante Decena, said that the office, in partnership with the United Cattle Raisers in Negros (UCRAIN) aims to strengthen the local cattle industry for various commodities, like beef and dairy, to diversify potential source of income and livelihood for Negrense farmers.

This initiative will be achieved through herd build-up using genetically superior breeding stocks and adoption of technologies, like artificial insemination and embryo transfer, he said, adding that, with the help of the new technologies acquired by the provincial government, sustainability will be ensured.
