According to the members, aside from the possibility of marketing and earning from the meat, milk, and other goat products, the goats will also help in the removal of weeds in the farm which will lessen the farmers’ usage of harmful herbicides.

Also, goat manure is mostly used in organic farming, and by selling this fertilizer, the groups can earn extra income.

The distribution, facilitated by SAAD 12 Deputy Focal Person Elma Delante and provincial staff in coordination with the 8 local government units (LGUs), was assisted by the 72nd Infantry Battalion. ###
