Dr. Angelito L. Lacadin [2]

Abstract: This development project was conducted to increase enrollment and enhance the entrepreneurial capability and employability of AFNR students and graduates of SUCs in Region II and Region III through an alliance of learning of CLARRDEC and CVARRD. Specifically, it aimed to 1) foster an intra and inter-regional/institutional alliance of learning in CLARRDEC and CVARRD, 2) enrich/develop and implement industry-responsive and harmonized curricular and short-term training courses on Agriculture, Forestry and Natural Resources (AFNR), 3) enhance students learning environment through upgrading of facilities and establishment of income generating projects, 4) improve the technical and entrepreneurial skills of AFNR students and graduates towards gainful employment and enterprise development, 5) establish linkages/partnership with the public-private sector, and 6) institutionalize the consortium alliance, enriched curriculum, income generating projects and public-private sector partnership to ensure sustainability of the initiated projects. The overall effect of the study on enrollment can be measured only indirectly after the effects of the intervening factors between the establishment of the TLP and enrollment in AFNR are identified and quantified. The Goat TLP of the Nueva Vizcaya State University was established primarily to serve as avenue for trainings and a showcase of viable technology and entrepreneurship. Thus, inherent in this is the capacity to generate income to sustain the project. Based on the results of this project, the following are recommended shift from production of slaughter goats to breeder goats, upgrading of breeder stocks, shift from complete confinement to semi-confinement method of production, forage area/pasture development by planting legume trees along fences and planting of improve forage grasses and legumes, linkages with government agencies, goat and sheep producers associations and entrepreneurs, conduct of the Goat Production and Entrepreneurship Training, and impact assessment study.
