Talakag Celebrates Farmers’ Day

For the very first time, Talakag celebrated Farmers’ Day over a 3-day period (August 17-19). The event was organised and sponsored by the Municipal Agriculture Office and the Municipal Agriculture and Fisheries Council. As usual it started with a civic parade, followed by an opening programme and cutting of ribbon to officially declare the event open.

Farmers from around Talakag gathered to exchange experiences and tips on successful farming. They also took the opportunity to attend seminars run by the Municipal Agriculture Office covering topics in line with this year’s theme “Ang Kakugi sa Pag-uma Maoy Pag-laum sa Lungsod”. Plaques of Recognition were awarded to Outstanding Farmers for 2011 while Plaques of Appreciation were given to Agro-Fair Exhibitors. Prizes were also awarded to winners of different game categories. Please check out the photos of activities below.
