Power investors needed
Visayas growth rate exceeds projections: DOE

The Department of Energy is urging local government officials and business groups to seek more power investors because the Visayas will need 9,180MW more by 2040, DOE Visayas Field Office Director Jose Rey Maleza said yesterday.

Power investors are needed because adequate and low-cost power supply is one of the requirements in attracting economic investments, Maleza said.

The grid now has an installed capacity of 3,503MW but can deliver only about 2,313MW, he said. At nighttime peak the amount of available power decreases because solar power plants are not available, he said. moremoremore

Artificial insemination pushed
to improve cattle production

The Provincial Veterinary Office in Negros Occidental and the United Cattle Raisers Association in Negros and the Visayas are pushing for artificial insemination (AI) as breeding method to accelerate genetic improvement and cattle production.

Provincial Veterinarian Renante Decena said yesterday that this technique will help address the dwindling cattle population in the country.

PVO and UCRAIN-V, in cooperation with the Bureau of Animal Industry, recently conducted a seminar on proper semen handling, identification, storage and management at the Negros First Ranch in Sta. Rosa, Murcia to enhance the skills of AI technicians and improve the efficiency of the breeding technique to have a higher rate of pregnancy.
