Courtesy Visit to Mayor Thaddy A. Ramos
Last Thursday, Jan. 19, 2023, the Department of Agriculture-Philippine Rural Development Project (DA-PRDP) Project Support Office (PSO) Regional Project Coordination Office V (RCPO5) and the National Meat Inspection Service (NMIS) Regional Technical Operation Center V (RTOC V) paid a Courtesy Visit to Mayor Thaddy A. Ramos. After the said visit, together with and the Local Government Unit of Ragay, they conducted a Joint Final Inspection of AA Slaughterhouse Construction Project at Barangay Agrupacion, this municipality.
For many years, the municipality’s swine farmers, meat vendors and processors make use of our existing slaughterhouse, which lacks equipment and is non-compliant to the National Meat Inspection Services’ (NMIS) standards, but this situation will soon change as the “AA Slaughterhouse” will be fully operational next month. This is funded by the Department of Agriculture – Philippine Rural Development Project (DA-PRDP) Infrastructure Development (I-BUILD) component.
The facility has an operational capacity of 11 to 58 heads per day for hogs; 1 to 8 heads per day for cattle; and is complete with hog slaughtering equipment, large animal slaughtering equipment, and auxiliary equipment.
The Local Government Unit of Ragay would like to extend its gratitude to the following personnel from both NMIS & DA-PRDP Regional Offices who were present during the inspection, namely: Allan Tatierra, PSO I, Build Head; Richard Balandra, PSO GGU Head; Engr. Rhishel Penara, PSO Rural Infrastructure Engineer; Engr. Joel Catimbang, Engr. Jimbo Bjorn Salceda, Engr. Nathalie Jill Trinidad, Teresita Blanqueza, Richelle Angela Alfigura, and Michelle Jan Sapalaran.
