Participants and organizers at the UP Training Center in Marilog, Davao City

The UP Mindanao Land Reservation Management Office delivered the Training on Free-Range Chicken Production at the UP Training Center in Marilog, Davao City. Fifty-seven (57) participants, mostly members of the Obu Manuvu and Matigsalug tribes, attended the training. The participants came from Barangays Marilog, Magsaysay, and Salumay, Davao City, and the adjacent Barangay Datu Ladayon, Arakan, in Cotabato Province.


Dr. Antonio R. Obsioma, former UP Mindanao vice chancellor and animal husbandry expert, served as the Resource Person. 


After the training, 11 participants from Datu Salumay received 22 heads of chickens and kilos of feed as starter kits for their chicken production in their respective areas. Other participants will receive their starter kits in the next few weeks.


This training, organized by LRMO chief Joel Sagadal in collaboration with the local barangays and the Obu Manuvu tribe, is an offering for the celebration of UP Mindanao's 29th founding anniversary. 

UP Mindanao's role in the Marilog Land Reservation is defined in Presidential Proclamation 1253, signed by President Fidel V. Ramos on June 15, 1998, "for research, extension, instruction purposes, watershed and forest rehabilitation and protection, biodiversity (flora and fauna) conservation, crops and livestock production, and management, including upland communities training and development center of the University of the Philippines."

The training and starter kits address the Sustainable Development Goals relating to No Poverty, Zero Hunger, and other SDGs.

To help UPMin in the holistic development of its students, the UP Alumni Association Davao has volunteered to rehabilitate the Masjid on the UPMin campus. Funds for the rehabilitation will be raised through donations. This initiative aims to promote its use by members of the UP Mindanao Association of Muslim Students (UPMAMS) and other Muslim students. Moreover, the Masjid contributes to UPMin's differentiation among UP campuses, Mindanao being the home of the Bangsamoro. The Masjid was constructed by elements of the Philippine Army during their tenure in the area before the site's conversion into the UPMin campus. The rehabilitation will place it among the prominent campus landmarks, alongside the Oblation, the Kublai sculptures, and the Sports Complex. For this, UPMin and the UPAAD held a ceremonial signing of a Memorandum of Agreement for the rehabilitation of the UPMin Masjid in a board meeting on August 12, 2023. UPAAD President Pedro "Bogs" Quitain III (seated left in the above photo) and UPMin Chancellor Lyre Anni Murao (seated third from left) led the ceremonial signing witnessed by UPMAMS head Sittie Asia Marohom of BS Anthropology 2023 (seated second from left), and UPAAD Vice-President Bai Ashrafia Aymee Biruar-Mitmug. UPAAD directors who were present and witnesses to the ceremonial signing were (standing, left-right) Dr. Khalil Guinomla, UPAAD chairperson Nap Concepcion, Ana Gualberto, assistant secretary Rene Estremera, and (online) Marie Glenn Sorila, Krishna Balaga, and Brian Good.
