The Compostela Valley State College (CVSC)  celebrated its 4th Agriculture Day last October 17-19, 2018  thru the initiative of the College of Agriculture – Agriculture Society, an accredited student organization composed of agriculture students in the main campus.

College President Dr. Christie Jean V. Ganiera led the ribbon cutting ceremony to mark the opening of the event after a holy mass celebrated by assistant Parish Priest Rev. Fr. Jhoniel Poliquit.

Joining her are Mr. Ramon P. Sebuan, Dean of College Criminal Justice Education (CCJE); Department of Agriculture Regional Field Office XI (DA-RFO-XI) representative Mr. Teodulfo C. Lora; Dr. Lilybeth M. Matunhay, Vice President for Research, Extension, and Development (RED); and College of Agriculture faculty headed by Mr. Jeson N. Geroche, OIC- of the College of Agriculture.

Ganiera, in her opening message mentioned, “You are more fortunate compared to some other institutions with agriculture program. Obviously, through the collaborative effort of your Dean and the rest of the instructors and the Agriculture Society Officers, this occasion is indeed a fruitful one. With the availability of these equipments, definitely, you will be ignited and inspired more to study well since you don’t just have your skilful educators, yet in addition you have all these equipment that you could use in the course of your learning journey.”

She then challenged the students to have the obligation to take great consideration and extra care of the new ranch hardware.

The 4.7 million newly acquired machineries out of the GAA 2017 includes each of the following: 1 Unit Shredder, 1 Unit 4 Wheel Tractor with Implements (disk plow and rotary tiller), 1 Unit Power Tiller with Implements (rotavator), 1 Unit Rice Thresher, 1 Unit Corn Sheller, 1 Unit Seed Blower, 1 Unit Feed Pelletizing, 1 Unit Forage Chopper, and 1 Unit Power Spray which were equally distributed to the main campus and Maragusan which are offering agriculture programs. Another 3million was also utilized to procure Natural Sciences Laboratory equipment.

Focusing on the theme: “Strengthening Sustainable Rice and Livestock Production and Management in Compostela Valley,” the Agriculture Society paid tribute to the farmers of Compostela during the Farmers’ Forum on the 2nd day, an avenue where the farmers were greatly acknowledged of their hard work and great contribution to the community’s development.

“In contrast to our past festivals, which were just simply exhibiting diverse activities; now, we are exhibiting these farm machineries which would definitely aid us instructors in translating the knowledge we have in farming to our students in the actual field.” said Geroche.
