Last September 11, 2014 Feedpro celebrated the first anniversary of the Babuyang Walang Amoy Information Center in Baao, Camarines Norte. The Info Center is intended to promote the Babuyang Walang Amoy technology in the area. The center serves as a venue for meetings and seminars of Feedpro users and interested farmers in the Camarines provinces. Because of the demo natural piggery, visitors can witness firsthand Feedpro technology and can better apply it in their own farms.
The celebration was attended by Feedpro distributors and dealers, and many hog farmers from neighboring towns and nearby provinces in the Bicol region. The event started with a ceremonial mass and was followed by an open forum with the Feedpro’s Technical Services, Doc Jhun Cahusay and Doc Alfred Palattao. Many questions relating to pen management, proper feeding, and environment issues were answered and explained. Some examples of these issues are the practices of minimizing flies and introducing indigenous micro-organisms (IMO).
The event also allowed for hog raisers to share their testimonials, experiences, and knowledge in practicing natural farming. Through their own initiative, these farmers are able to share with others, especially by word of mouth, the benefits of natural hog raising using Feedpro technology.
The Info Center includes a training hall for seminars and a demo pen of the Babuyang Walang Amoy technology. The center also features a vegetable garden beside the piggery wherein worn rice hull from the piggery is used as plant compost.
The Feedpro Babuyang Walang Amoy Information Center is located along the National Highway, Sta. Teresita, Baao, Camarines Sur.
