The Philippine Carabao Center(PCC) has chosen the Aglipay Dairy Producers Cooperative (ADPC) in Brgy. Aglipay, Rizal, Nueva EcUa as the country’s best dairy cooperative this year
APDC has started as the Aglipay Primary Multi-Purpose Cooperative in 1999 and succeeded the Angat Buhay Producers Multi-Purpose Cooperative in Calabalabaan, Science City of Munoz, Nueva Ecija, which was conferred the Hall of Fame after being the best dairy co-op in the last three years.
According to Reynaldo Calixtro, co-op manager, the ADPC was expected to avail two dairy modules from the PCC in 1999 and 2000, but there were so many takers and, hence, only one module and 16 head were given to them. Each dairy module consisted of 24 Murrah buffalo heifers, which were at least 18 months old, and a bull. Only 16 head were availed of in the second module, which were given in August 2000.
