DOST 02, PCC at CSU Awards Equipment to BBARC

The Department of Science and Technology Region 02 in partnership with the Philippine Carabao Center at CSU awarded and distributed equipment to the Baliuag- Bical Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries Cooperative (BBARC) on March 3, 2017 at the PCC at CSU, Namabbalan Norte, Tuguegarao City.

The activity was the result of the joint project of DOST 02 and PCC at CSU entitled “Fabrication of Mobile Carabao Stainless Milk Storage with Milk Test Kit for Milk Collection and Transport for CEST Community at Baliuag- Bical, Peñablanca, Cagayan”.

The objective of the project is to address BBARC’s problems on proper collection and transportation of milk from the farmers to the milk collection center. The existing unit used for collection and transport greatly affects the quality and shelf life of the milk due to sun exposure and unstable plastic containers.

The provision of fabricated mobile stainless milk storage will facilitate easier and good handling of milk and reduce the spoilage due to poor handling and transport.

Moreover, the mobile milk storage carries a milk test kit so collectors can perform tests on milk as basis for quality control.

This project for BBARC of Peñablanca was done through the leadership of Engr. Sancho A.Mabborang, Regional Director of DOST02 and Prof. Franklin Rellin, Center Director of PCC at CSU.

The activity was also graced by the presence of Hon. Randolf S. Ting, Congressman of the 3rd District of Cagayan. In his inspirational message, Hon. Ting said that the dairy industry has his utmost support and he is glad that there are projects supporting the dairy industry.

“This is just the beginning of the support of DOST Region 2 to the Dairy Industry” Engr. Mabborang also said in his message. He also said that the dairy industry could be assured of help from DOST 02 especially in the technical aspects and on the technology on carabao feeding and reproduction.

Following were initial S&T activities  that emanated:  conduct of a Food Safety Training for  food handlers and canteen operators; and the conduct of a SET-UP Forum and assessment of Biogas for slaughterhouse.

Other interventions include upgrading of muscavado, sugar cane and beef jerky processing as requested by Hon. Carmelo “Black” Villacete.

The partnership of DOST and LGU Piat thru MSTAG is one of the strategies of DOST to enhance adoption and commercialization of appropriate technologies in the countryside while giving independence and confidence to the LGU to manage its own science and technology requirements for development through guidance from DOST
