PALAWAN FARM DESTINATION GETS GOV’T BOOST FOR DAIRY PRODUCTION

0

PUERTO PRINCESA CITY—Yamang Bukid Farm, one of Palawan’s most visited tourism destinations, is embarking on dairy production to help improve the nutrition of school children, especially those in public schools.

This after the farm tourism destination in the city’s Barangay Bacungan availed of a soft loan from the Philippine Carabao Center (PCC) to raise imported and high quality breed of carabao that can be a good source of milk and other dairy products.

Some 11 Murrah buffaloes were initially given by the Nueva Ecija-based state animal propagation hub in a “public-private partnership scheme” to the Puerto Princesa City farm destination, according to Dr. Arnel del Barrio, PCC executive director.

“This is part of our carabao enterprise development wherein we help cooperatives, individual farmers (and) families by lending them the carabaos like a soft loan.
Beneficiaries like Yamang Bukid Farm repay it with another carabao which will be given to (another beneficiary),” Del Barrio said.

Ten female buffaloes (also technically known as cows) and a bull were received by Yamang Bukid Farm and were promptly shipped from Nueva Ecija midweek.

While at sea, one of the four pregnant buffaloes gave birth to a healthy female calf affectionately called “baby YB.”

Hezir Rabaya, one of the farm’s managers who fetched the herd said a concrete barn was built on a hill overlooking the sprawling farm to house the animals.

“We have enough facilities and personnel for this project,” said Rabaya.

The farming destination, Rabaya said, has several employees who underwent training on quality milk production at PCC recently. These Yamang Bukid employees are the ones who will help him in taking care pf the imported water buffaloes and in doing the milk production.

Del Barrio said PCC typically disperses 200 carabaos yearly on average and that Yamang Bukid Farm is among the “numerous applicants” to the program.

“Yours is exceptional. Your story of doing business to help others is inspiring. I also came to know that you are accredited (as a training center) by (Agricultural Training Institute). In short, you have everything PCC can hope for in a partner (in this project),” the PCC head said.

He said both PCC and Yamang Bukid Farm are on the same advocacy of helping provide livelihood to farmers and their families.

“The bottomline is to help alleviate poverty and give good nutrition to the schoolchildren,” the official said.

Del Barrio said Yamang Bukid can also include dairy and milk production a component to its ATI-accredited trainings and further boost its capabilities as a learning site.

The sprawling farm tourism draw, which attracts at least 5, 000 visitors weekly, is known for its well-manicured gardens of ornamental plants, succulents, among others and is into sustainable farming of vegetables and other crops.

It employs nearly 300 farmworkers, over 90 percent of whom are former illegal loggers and charcoal-makers who have since become protectors of the environment.

SA Instagram account na @mychosdotcom noong Biyernes, ipinoste ang larawan ni John Lloyd Cruz habang ito’y nagbo-board sa isang eroplano mula Palawan pabalik ng Manila.

May caption ito na, “Whoa! Look who’s spotted in a flight from Palawan to Manila! Sign din kaya ito ng isa na namang “pagbabalik”? Mapapansin na mag-isa lamang ang aktor sa larawan.

Ipinoste ito sa kasagsagan ng mga haka-hakang naghiwalay na sila ng partner na si Ellen Adarna dahil hindi na raw ma-“take” ni Ellen ang pagka-weirdo ni John Lloyd. Makikita rin sa larawan na mukhang ilang linggo nang hindi nag-aahit ang aktor.”

AGAD nilinaw ng pamunuan ng Philippine Navy na walang kinalaman sa idinaos na eleksyon ang pagdaong sa isang puerto sa Pilipinas ang dalawang U.S warship.

Batay sa report,  humimpil  sa lalawigan ng Palawan  ang dalawang U.S minesweepers  tatlong araw bago idaos ang May 13 midterm election.

Sa ulat na ibinahagi ng US Pacific fleet, dumaong sa Puerto Princesa ang kanilang Avenger-class mine countermeasures ships na USS Pioneer (MCM 9) at  USS Patriot (MCM 7) para sa official port visit at resupply and routine maintenance purposes noong Mayo 9.

Sa inilabas na statement,  nasa resupply mission lamang ang dalawang barko at sasamantalahin nila ito para mas higit pang mapalalim ang kanilang kaalaman sa kultura ng mga Filipino.

“Pioneer and Patriot sailors will also have the opportunity to learn about the Filipino culture and engage with the Puerto Princesa community. For many Filipino-American sailors, visiting the Philippines is a chance to reconnect with their heritage.”

“This isn’t just a chance for us to have fun and relax. We have sailors on board who have family in the Philippines and some were even born here,” pahayag pa ni  Lt. Cmdr. Robert Wayland, commanding officer ng Pioneer.

“So we are personally invested in this country, and it is more than just a pit stop. For some sailors, it’s a visit home,”pahayag naman ni  Master Chief Petty Officer Andrew Tyler, command master chief ng  Pioneer, na ipinanganak sa Pilipinas.

“Magandang pagkakataon ito para balikan ang Pilipinas . Maraming lugar sa bansa ang kamangha-mangha ang kagandahan at isa rito ang Palawan ani Tyler.

Ang Pioneer at  Patriot ay kapwa bahagi ng Commander, Mine Countermeasures Squadron 7 at  forward deployed sa  Sasebo, Japan. Kapwa sila nasa ilalim ng pangangasiwa ng U.S. 7th Fleet area of operations para matiyak ang regional peace and stability sa bahagi ng Indo Pacific region.

PAGLISAN NG CHINESE VESSELS INAASAHAN NG PALASYO

(NI BETH JULIAN)

KUMPIYANSA ang Malacanang na magiging positibo ang China sa panawagan  ni Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte na lisanin ng mga Chinese vessels ang Pagasa Island at iba pang isla na sakop ng Pilipinas.

Ayon kay Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo, malinaw ang posisyon ng Pangulo nang sabihin nito handa siyang makipag kaibigan sa China pero hindi dapat galawin ng mga Chinese ang Pagasa Island at iba pang teritoryo ng bansa.

Binigyan-diin pa ng Pangulo, ayon kay Panelo, na kung magpapatuloy pa ang aktibidad ng China ay nakahanda ang mga sundalo na sumabak sa suicide mission.

Dahil dito, malaki ang paniwala na tutugon ang China sa mabibigat na binitawang salita ng Pangulo at gagamitin ito bilang hudyat para lisanin na ang lugar.

Dagdag pa ng Panelo, bilang chief Presidential counsel, ay handa siya na payuhan ang Pangulo sakaling hingin nito ang kanyang opinyon sa usapin.

Una na ring nagpahayag ng kahandaan ang pamunuan ng Department of National Defense at Armed Forces of the Pihilippines, na ipagtanggol laban sa China ang Pagasa Island at iba pang teritoryo ng bansa.

Ipinangako ng DND na gagawin nila ang lahat para maipagtanggol ang kasarinlan ng bansa.

Una nang sinabi ng Pangulo na hindi nito papayagan ang China na okupahin ang isla ng Pagasa na sakop ng Palawan

LOURDES C. FABIAN(NI LOURDES C. FABIAN)

KABABALIK lang sa Manila nina Kathryn Bernardo at Daniel Padilla mula sa El Nido Palawan kung saan nag-celebrate si Kath ng kanyang 23rd birthday (March 26) with a bang through back-to-back parties with boyfriend Daniel. For her birthday salubong, Kath had a small salu-salo with her family and DJ at home.

Later that day, she flew to the beach with Daniel, her close friends, and family (including her mommy Min). They stayed at the El Nido Resorts at nasilip ng mga  fans ang cute dinner party ng family niya through IG Stories ng isang friend nila.

Super abang ang Kath-Niel fans sa mga sexy photo/video na ipo-post ni Kathryn, o ng mga kasamahan nila sa Palawan, pero until now ay wala pa rin silang ipino-post.

Sa isang video na ipinost ng Teen Queen’s mom, she’s heard sharing a message to her daughter, saying it in a mix of English and Filipino, “Sixteen years ago, you were just starting out and we were lining up for auditions. Remember, my daughter? Your journey was not easy. But now, after all the tears and sacrifices, you can see. Everything was worth it.”

Pinasalamatan niya si Kathryn sa pagiging mabuting anak. “Thank you for being a good daughter to your father and me, a loving sister, and a caring aunt. You always say that you’re not perfect, but I want you to know that your imperfections are not your flaws, they are your beauty.”

Ngayon ay mapapanatag na ang KathNiel fans na hindi totoo ang kumalat na balitang kesyo may pinagdaraanan at hiwalay na sina Daniel at Kathryn. Sigurado namang isi-share din nila ang mga larawang kuha sa kanyang birthday celebration. Wait lang kayo.
