THE local government of M'lang in North Cotabato and the Department of Agriculture (DA) distributed 105 sentinel piglets to revive its hog industry that collapsed due to the African swine fever (ASF) infestation.

Municipal agriculturist Arlyn Encarnacion said the piglets were given to 90 hog raisers from 23 villages hit by the hog disease.
