DA-SAAD augments MisOr women poultry raisers’ livelihood

CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY – Members of the Mosangot Women’s Producer Cooperative (MOWOPCO) of Binuangan town, Misamis Oriental recently received P697,800 worth of agri-livelihood support from the Department of Agriculture – Special Area for Agricultural Development (DA-SAAD) Program through Regional Executive Director Carlene C. Collado.

Twenty-five women poultry raisers who are members of MOWOPCO will benefit from the said assistance as part of its Egg Production Project.

The intervention includes a package of 315 ready-to-lay chicken, 7 chicken cages, 100 bags of chicken layers feeds, and veterinary drugs and biologics.

The MOWOPCO is among the seven identified beneficiary Farmers’ Associations/Cooperatives (FCAs) in Misamis Oriental for the DA-SAAD Phase 2 implementation from 2023 to 2028.

The cooperative is operating an estimated 7.62 hectares (ha) of land area dedicated for livestock production.

As their counterpart, the group apportioned some 130 square meters of production area where they built their poultry house for the chicken layers.

MOWOPCO is set to begin supplying eggs to wholesalers and retailers in the local market in Binuangan town starting this month, with an expected initial sales of P49,950 per month.

The cooperative is set to receive other assistance such as 100 egg trays and five rolls of chicken nets in the first quarter of 2024 as a package to the DA-SAAD egg production project.
