Sen. Cynthia A. Villar Bats for an increase in milk production for filipino farmers to earn and improve their lives: Sen. Cynthia A. Villar, chairperson of the Senate Agriculture and Food committee, confronts National Dairy Authority (NDA) Administrator Marilyn Mabale on the accomplishments of her office since she assumed her post more than a year ago. During Villar committee’s hearing on the present operations of the NDA and the effectiveness of the government’s programs on the development of the dairy industry, Villar also questioned the NDA’s failure to perform its mandate since it was created 23 years ago. The senator notes that NDA has been producing only one percent of our demand for milk. She presses for the production of our own cows instead of importing them, also to ensure lower cost of milk.
