The Provincial Veterinary Office in Misamis Oriental launched on April 24, 2017, the “School-on-the-Air” program of the Provincial Government.
Dr. Benjamin Resma, Provincial Veterinary Head, said the program is aimed as teaching the student’s on the effective ways in duck production via broadcasting over RMN-DXCC.
Resma said the students, who should be officially enrolled in this program would only listen to the discussions and instructions over radio, from duck raising/production and marketing strategies. Graduates of this course will receive certificates of completion from the Office of the Governor, which eventually be used in availing livelihood programs offered by the Provincial Government particularly in duck raising.
“This is our way, as Governor Bambi Emano instructed us, to bring our services closer to the people using the airwave machineries such as the radio stations that areas in Misamis Oriental that are difficult for us to reach can already be possible,” Dr. Resma explained.
Experts from the PVO like Susan G. Laquibla, provincial agriculturist II, will anchor the program to be regularly aired over RMN-dxCC every Mondays and Fridays, from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. The PVO has enrollees from the municipalities of Kinoguitan, Lagonglong, Tagoloan, Claveria, Libertad, Manticao, Villanueva, Alubijid, Laguindingan, Jasaan, El Salvador, Balingasag, Naawan and Opol.
Interested radio programs aficionados are urged to join the enrolees in their trainings and be equipped in duck raising business.(PIO)
