Dr. Antonio R. Obsioma and Dr. Virginia P. Obsioma presented research outputs of the Mindanao Cattle Research and Development Project (MCRDP) to Department of Agriculture Undersecretary for Livestock William Medrano and Bureau of Animal Industry (BAI) Director Reildren Morales on 09 March 2022 at the National Beef Cattle Research & Development Center (NBCRDC) in Dalwangan, Malaybalay City. Also with them in this meeting were DA-XI Regional Executive Director Abel James Monteagudo and NBCRDC Chief Luisito Avante.  Chief Avante is a research partner who is working on the preservation of the semen of the F1 bulls. The MCRDP is being conducted by the University of the Philippines Mindanao and funded by the Department of Agriculture – Regional Field Office (DA-RFO XI).  Phase 1 of this project started in 2013 and will be completed by the end of March 2022. Phase 2 of the project is underway and will be conducted by the Department of Agriculture RXI. The team proceeded to visit the project site on 11 March 2022 where the DA officials saw the crossbred cattle produced since 2013.  The crossbreds were shorter compared to native cattle but were found to have better dressing and lean yields and good meat quality characteristics. One of these was an F1 bull named “Red” which delighted the visitors (in photo, above).
