He said the special dishes were brought to the Governor’s Office and the Sangguniang Panlalawigan at The Bunker on Monday. Dr. Paguia and Provincial Veterinarian Dr. Albert Venturina headed the presentation of rabbit meat dishes.
Paguia said the apparently satisfied Vice Governor Cris and the entire SP members have offered Market Day to sell fresh rabbit meat, rabbit products, and rabbit dishes and meal at least once a week at The Bunker.
The Provincial Government of Bataan through the Provincial Veterinary Office (PVO) provided project grant to BARMPP for improved rabbit meat production.
