DV BOER FARM INTERNATIONAL CORPORATION, largest goat farm in the Philippines will commercialize goat-meat (chevon) canning technology under the brand CHEVON VALLEY developed by Isabela State University (ISU) thru a research grant from Department of Science and Technology- Philippine Council for Agriculture, Aquatic and Natural Resources Research and Development (DOST-PCAARRD). The commercialization initiative came after the company has signed technology license agreement earlier this year with ISU. The products under the trade name Chevon Valley – Kaldereta, Adobo and Kilawing Kambing are expected to be out in the market by the end of April 2020.
According to Mr. Dexter Villamin President of DV BOER FARM, application of food processing technology will be a great help to boost food security in the Philippines specially in this time of crisis brought about the prevailing COVID-19 pandemic. He added that the company will focus on post-harvest processing such as canning to prolong product shelf life and ensure that products can be easily shipped to places where there could be a demand.
Aside from canning technology, DV BOER FARM has also signed a license agreement on goat semen processing using a formulated goat semen extender SEMEX. The processed goat semen will be used in different farms to facilitate breeding using artificial insemination (AI). AI technology would ensure the rapid livestock population increase across the country thru the network of SUBSIDIARIES of DV BOER nationwide that will act as “SEMEN BANKS” where livestock raisers can purchase affordable straws of semen harvested from genetically-superior animals imported by DV BOER FARM. Thru AI, livestock farmers would be able to produce offspring of preferred gender for more accurate and swift production. With superior genes of animals readily available in communities where DV BOER FARM SUBSIDIARIES are located, the upgrading of our country’s livestock would be instantaneous and hopefully we can save millions of money by reducing or cutting our country’s livestock imports.
ISU has agreed to the proposal of DV Boer Farm to commercialize mature technologies with the hope that utilization in the communities will be faster with private sector intervention; while setting the goal of increasing the volume of goat meat to meet demand and to further address food security.
At this early, many investors and retailers are showing much interest in this product since it is unique and absolutely marketable locally and abroad.
