In this month’s seminar series, the Bureau of Agricultural Research (BAR) featured topics on the commercial production of free-range chicken and the supply value chain analysis of native chicken.

Held at the 4th floor BAR Conference Hall, Visayas Avenue, Diliman, Quezon City on 26 April 2018, the seminar drew 150 participants from all over Metro Manila and some nearby provinces.

Serving as resource persons were Dr. Ma. Asuncion Beltran, dean of the College of Veterinary Medicine of Tarlac Agricultural University and Professor Julieta Delos Reyes, assistant professor of agricultural economics at the University of the Philippines Los Baños.

Practical knowledge on the featured topics included the most basic yet highly essential management practices on rearing free-range chicken geared towards enterprise. Dr. Beltran provided insightful, scientific tips that were the results of a BAR-funded research study, “Commercial Production of Free-Range Chicken”.

Meanwhile, Prof. Delos Reyes gave emphasis on the analysis of the productivity, profitability, and technical efficiency of native chicken. The project, titled “Supply Value Chain Analysis of Native Chicken in Batangas and Quezon, Philippines” is also funded by the bureau.

The BAR monthly seminar series is organized and led by the Applied Communication Division. ###

For April, BAR featured topics on commercial production of free-range chicken and the supply value chain analysis of native chicken.
