This Double-A Slaughter House will benefit commercial hog raisers, meat vendors and processors in the municipality. The service
facility, which features a main slaughter building, eight hog holding pens, one cattle holding pen, and complete equipment, will improve the quality of meat produced in the Municipality of Ragay and allow them to deliver safe and quality meat products to a wider market. In addition, it will provide leverage and open more opportunities to livestock growers as local meat produced can be marketed outside the municipality and the province. Moreover, it will generate additional revenues for the local government unit from slaughtering services and related operations.
This “AA” Slaughterhouse was constructed in partnership with the Department of Agriculture – Philippine Rural Development Project, World Bank, and the Local Government Unit of Ragay headed by Mayor Thaddy A. Ramos.
