As a continuous capacity development of our farmers, the request for a training of San Guillermo farmers was granted. The two-day Free Seminar on Feed on Feed Formulation was conducted on January 9-10, 2020 at the Agricultural Training Institute – Regional Training Center 02, San Mateo, Isabela.

The seminar was participated in by 30 agricultural extension workers and farmers of the said municipality together with their Municipal Agriculturist, Ms. Jeannie Mangaoil.

It aimed at enhancing the knowledge, skills and attitude of the participants in formulating low-cost feeds and supplements for a sustainable livestock and poultry production.

During the seminar, the participants were taught about basic animal nutrition, identifying different local feed stuff, nutritional requirement of poultry and livestock at different stages of production, and calculation and formulation of natural feed mix and other types of feed processing.

Participants were motivated to apply the learnings they gained from the training. Mr. Jerome Collado said that being a beneficiary of ATI is an opportunity to improve. “Ako po ay ATI-EP and Adopt-a-4H Program beneficiary last 2019. Masasabi ko po na marami akong napag-aralan sa pagstay ko dito sa ATI-RTC 2 at muling nadagdagan ito sa pagsali ko sa seminar na ito. Maraming salamat ATI dahil patuloy pa rin niyo kaming tinutulungan sa pamamagitan ng pagbibigay ng mga karagdagang training gaya nito, na alam ko pong magagamit ko sa aking proyekto na babuyan”, Collado added. “I learned how to prepare feeds in low-cost but enough to provide the needed nutrition of my pigs,” he ended.
