The National Federation of Hog Farmers, Inc. once again convened its members during its 20th National Convention held last April 14-15 at Baguio Country Club.

The convention had for its theme “Sa Matuwid Na Landas, Babuyan Ay Uunlad” which is in support to the call of President Benigno Simeon Aquino III for matuwid na daan for a better Philippines.

This year, distinguished guests were Senator Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan, Batangas Rep. Mark Llandro Mendoza and Agriculture Secretary Proceso Alcala who attended on the first day. The three leaders all tackled issues on raw materials and on excessive importations challenging the hog industry now.

The 2nd day was highlighted by the presence of Customs Commissioner Angelito A. Alvarez as guest of honor. He discussed ways and means on how to support the local industries and committed to go after unscrupulous revenue cheaters.

The swine raisers hoped to unite and contribute to viability of the local swine industry for survival and ultimately support its allied industries like corn farmers, fishermen, coconut & sugar planters, and the local veterinary drug companies.

The two-day event featured exhibits from the industry’s major players, namely, the veterinary drug companies, breeder companies, integrators and swine practitioners, and other partners from the private and government sectors.

Also featured during the two-day event were technical seminars which aimed to arm the local swine raisers for all the challenges facing the industry.
