The Perks of Goat Raising

As a component of the DISOP BUTTERFLIES AND TREES Project, members of PBSP's community organizations in barangays Buhisan and Toong participated in a two-day seminar on goat production and management. 

During this seminar, PBSP taught the participants how to make silage (preserved goat food). A barrel will feed a goat (weighing 30 kg) for approximately 10 days.  The advantage of this technology? Farmers need not feed and look for food for their goats all the time. And, when food sources go scarce, this will serve as a reserve since it spoils after two years.

After this seminar, each people's organization will be provided with startup capital and at least 12 goats as their additional means of earning income.
