As part of tradition and Filipino culture, cock fighting has become a billion peso industry – and it’s not just about gambling anymore – it is now about breeding and avian heath. That’s why Fiestag 2014 have focused more into that aspect, bringing to the Filipino cock fighters the newest and most advance equipment and medicines to boost the industry. The lecture/seminar also focused on breeding. It is to make better stocks for better champions.
