Poultry farmers in Davao region were elated to receive very good quality free range chickens as their post training starter kit after completing the School On-the-Air (SOA) on Poultry Production conducted by the Agricultural Training Institute- XI.

The distribution of chickens was initiated by the then Special Assistant to the President (SAP), now Senator Christopher “Bong” Go which he promised to the 507 graduates of the Program.

During the SOA on Poultry Production mass graduation ceremony last August 24, 2018, Sen. Go turned over 1.5 million pesos for the purchase of Free Range Chickens to be given to each SOA farmer-graduate with six heads (1 male and 5 female) of chicken.

Initial distribution of chickens was conducted last October 27, 2018 in the municipalities of Governor Generoso and Banaybanay, Davao Oriental, and Pantukan, Compostela Valley, spearheaded by Assistant Secretary Dr. Enrico P. Garzon Jr .
