National Hog Convention Slated In Davao City
The 19th Hog Convention and Trade Exhibits will be staged on April 8 to 10 at the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas in Davao City, hosted by the Davao Hog Farmers Association, Inc. It is organized annually by the Pork Producers Federation of the Philippines or ProPork (formerly the National Federation of Hog Farmers, Inc.).
This year’s theme, “Ensuring survival through efficiency and improved pork production,” will educate participants with practical and technical information and tips from experts – helping them secure the safety and profitability of their farms.
The annual event – the biggest and longest-running trade exhibition focusing on the swine industry, gathers thousands of commercial and backyard hog raisers from all over Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao.
“We are very excited already and we look forward to another successful turn out,” said ProPork President Albert Lim, Jr. “We have been very lucky that thousands of people come every year. It just shows that they are interested to learn from the seminars and to check out the state-of-the-art services and equipment of our exhibitors.”
The gathering is open free to the public and is considered a “must-go-to” event, especially for those thinking of setting up their own hog businesses.
Aside from the main convention, the gathering will also host the 3rd Backyard Hog Farmers Congress which focuses on the needs of the backyard hog raisers so they can improve their operations.
