TANTANGAN, SOUTH COTABATO - A training course on raising native goats was held for 20 farmers from different provinces in Region XII last September 11-13, 2023. The training was held at the Agricultural Training Institute-Regional Training Center XII (ATI-RTC XII) in San Felipe, Tantangan, South Cotabato.

The training was aimed to teach farmers how to raise native goats properly and increase their productivity. Native goats are a valuable asset for farmers in Region XII because they are relatively easy to care for and can be raised in a variety of environments. They are also a good source of meat and milk, and can provide additional income for farmers.

The participants also had the opportunity to learn how to raise native goats firsthand through a field practicum at Dr. Bra Coco-goat Integrated Farm in Datu Odin Sinsuat, Maguindanao.

The Farmer-level Training on Native Goat Production and Management is designed to provide farmers with the knowledge and skills they need to be successful in native goat production.

The training is expected to help the participants improve their productivity and income from native goat production. This will lead to a more sustainable and profitable agricultural sector in Region XII.
