Balungao’s administrative urban landscape stands in the town’s municipal compound that’s been existing since 1815. Over the years, the compound has faced various restorations and to date, it contains a mini-park, gymnasium, and the Municipal Hall. The exterior of the municipal building is concrete with dirty white paint and chocolate brown accents. It has an arched entrance way bearing some ornamental brickwork and small front building landscapes. Drop by the town hall and gain some tips and history from the tourism office before taking on a memorable Balungao adventure.
The Integrated Goat Management approach in goat raising was first introduced to the municipality of Balungao as the pilot area in the Philippines on June 26, 2002, sponsored by the Philippine Council for Agriculture, Aquatic and Natural Resources Research and Development (PCARRD).
Relative to this, the LGU Balungao established its own Goat Production Demonstration Site to showcase the package of technology on raising and to fulfill its mandate in sahring the knowledge and skills leading to a successful goat entreprise to interested individual or group.
The LGU Goat Production Demonstration Site of Balungao is open to Lakbay-Aral activity from Monday to Sunday, starting at 7AM to 6PM. In case the interested person or group wants to have a lecture, all they have to do is send a formal request address to the Municipal Mayor thru the office of the Municipal Agriculturish.
