More Negrenses into livestock,
poultry-raising, PVO exec says

There is a growing number of Negrenses, who engaged in livestock and poultry-raising for business, Provincial Veterinarian Renante Decena said yesterday.

Decena said they continue to buy original stocks from the two provincial farms at the Negros First Ranch in Murcia and the Provincial Livestock Breeding Center and Dairy Farm in La Carlota City.

These private individuals, who have the capacity to invest, have seen the potential of livestock and poultry as means of ensuring food security and supply, as well as an alternative livelihood to sustain their family income, he said.
