THE WAY FORWARD │ Level Up Philippine Agriculture!

NDA 25th Founding Anniversary

Author: DA Communications Group | 10 March 2020

Agriculture Secretary William D. Dar challenged the officers and employees of the National Dairy Authority (NDA) to continue to support the dairy industry, elevate their game, and reinvent the agency’s strategic plan towards tripling the milk production of the country.

During the 25th Founding Anniversary of NDA on March 10, 2020, the Secretary underscored the importance of increasing the population of dairy herds to meet local milk requirements of the country.

The Secretary added that it is critical to increase the population of dairy cattle and upgraded carabaos, which could produce at least 12-15 liters of milk per day. As such, he directed NDA and PCC to double their efforts and partner with the private sector.

He also urged the private sector to support the local dairy farmers by leading the development initiatives for the dairy industry in every province in the country. (Photos by Alarico Nuestro, DA-AFID)
