Chairman, Mindanao Development Authority
Agusan del Sur Governor Santiago Cane Jr., a farmer just like most Mindanao local government executives, will lead officials in a ceremonial harvest of the Sorghum planted last year with seeds provided by Mindanao Development Authority (MinDA).
The seeds were donated by Scott Seeds of Hereford Texas through its owner Coby Kriegshauzer last year and distributed to several farmers groups and local government units in Mindanao as part of the Livestock and Poultry Industry Development Program of MinDA.
Durimg the program today, farmers will be briefed on Sorghum harvest technology and the other uses of its by-products, like its stalks and leaves for silage.
Silage-making expert Arnel Corpuz of General Santos City who used to manage a 50,000-head Wagyu feedlot in Australia, will be invited to lecture on silage making.
The activity today will be broadcast live via Facebook to allow farmers groups in other parts of Mindanao and the country to learn more about Sorghum farming and silage-making.
