Keep up with pork demand,
Decena urges swine raisers
BY MARCHEL P. ESPINA

Provincial Veterinarian Renante Decena urged the swine raisers to determine their capacity to keep up with the supply with the growing demand from local markets and neighboring provinces.

Decena, who joined the regular meeting of the Alliance of Hog Raisers Association in Negros Occidental Inc. yesterday, said that since the province remained free from the dreaded African swine fever virus, backyard raisers need to identify opportunities such as the coming in of potential buyers to meet the demands for pork in the local and national markets.

He said they also tackled the marketing impact of swine, especially the buying of live hogs, and operation of meat shops due to the effect of ASF threat in the neighboring provinces.
