Executive Director Patricio Faylon (top, left) of the Department of Science and Technology-Philippine Council for Agriculture, Aquatic, and Natural Resources Research and Development leads the Memorandum of Agreement signing with heads of partner academic institutions for the National Dairy Goat Science and Technology (S&T) Program on August 4 at the Luxent Hotel in Quezon City. The program seeks to boost the local dairy goat industry now faced with various issues such as limited access of smallholders to good dairy goat breeds and absence of feeding guides for milking goats, among others. In photo with Faylon are (from left): Dr. Aleth M. Mamauag, president of Isabela State University; Dr. Ruben C. Sevilleja, president of Central Luzon State University (CLSU); Dr. Sylvia B. Concepcion, Chancellor of University of the Philippines Mindanao; Dr. Emilio M. Cruz of CLSU, program leader; and Dr. Elpidio M. Magante, president of Bohol Island State University.
