Our first destination is the Mother Earth Products Inc. where there is a slaughtering house and food processing department.First,we went to the slaughtering house.I saw there a cow splitted by a man .We asked questions to our lecturer like what kinds of machine are needed in a slaughter house and how do they slaughter pigs and cows.Next,we went to the food processing department where the meat are processed.Their finished products are Hotdogs,sausages,longganisa,tocino,sisig and bacon.Then,we went also in the lecture room.The lecturer is Mr. Abe Tayag.We learn more things about slaughtering like slaughtering of pigs and cattles.There is also a steps how to slaughter a pig.
