Mr. Tipo, the resource person of the Free Seminar, encourages the participants as well as the mall goers to raise darag native chicken because it is the healthier option especially if it is for personal consumption.

KALIBO, Aklan - Fifty Akeanons Native Chicken Enthusiasts gathered together to participate in the seventh run of the Free Seminar Series of the Agricultural Training Institute – Regional Training Center VI that focused on Native Chicken Production at the City Mall Kalibo Activity area last September 17, 2019.
