The Provincial Government of Albay (PGA) under the dynamic and innovative leadership of Gov. Al Francis C. Bichara through the Albay Veterinary Office (AVO) conducted its initial site validation of the farmers’ association from the Municipality of Camalig, Tiwi and Bacacay, Albay who applied for the Integrated National Swine Production Initiatives for Recovery and Expansion (INSPIRE) Program on January 20, 2022.

The INSPIRE program aims to calibrate repopulation and enhance the local swine industry to recover the sector’s capacity to produce sufficient supply of hogs and pork in the country. This is being implemented in the province by the Department of Agriculture-Regional Field Office 5 (DA-RFO 5), its relevant agencies and concerned Local Government Units (LGU).
