The provincial government sold 3,965 sheep to 119 buyers, of which 54 are local government units and 65 are from the private sector for P76,478,500 payable in three years.

Pinongan said that some of the buyers made advance partial payments at the time of the purchase.
Earlier, Governor Alfredo Marañon Jr. claimed that the sheep dispersal program of the province is “a success”.
