According to the Department of Agriculture, Hog raisers affected by African swine fever will receive increased cash assistance.

“Pina-approve ko sa Gabinete at inaprubahan nila. Itataas namin ‘yung P3, 000 to P5, 000 per head,” Agriculture Secretary William Dar stated.

He added that hog raisers who already received their cash assistance, prior to his announcement, will still benefit from the incentive.

Lastly, DAR called out hog raisers to cooperate with the government if African swine fever affects their hogs.
