Mayor Juancho Aguirre: A Veteran Gamefowl Breeder


Majority of cockers and breeders around the Philippines considered him as an idol in cockfighting world. His title as an idol is very important because it served as his trademark. Mayor Juancho Aguirre is considered to be one of the legends in Philippine cockfighting industry with his Grey and Lemon Guapo which is very handsome chicken.

Mayor Juancho Aguirre has not been a champion in some prestige derby like Bakbakan and World Slasher Cup, but his chicken used by other cockers won. This cocker was Gene Sola who won in Candelaria International Derby in 2013 and contributed much progression in gamefowl industry.  He introduced bred chickens with a scientific approach because, before, there was no expert breeder at that time. American breeders introduced and revolutionized how to breed and condition chickens properly. Unluckily, not all knowledge that he learned from American breeders were not applicable to the Philippine system. He only chose the best methods that can give positive outcome.

JGA Farm is the farm of Mayor Juancho coming from his initials which is located in Sitio Lunano, Barangay Mailum, Bago City, Negros Occidental bsides to the farm of Hernani Hernandez. The mountain elevation gave much weather condition that was suitable for chicken breeding. This constitutes more healthy chickens in return.

Mayor Juancho Aguirre served three terms as mayor of La Carlota in Negros Occidental because of his leadership and good governance. The residents claimed that mayor Huancho is a true gentleman and humble person, which was why, they loved him. Even in cockfighting scene, cockers called him Mayor. He is very accommodating that’s why many breeders consulting him before they make a big decision to their farms.

He is a leader by heart, and extended this trait in cockfighting industry and became a president of Negros Gamefowl Breeder for more than a decade. When he handled this association he made a lot of changes. He also became an officer of National Federation of Gamefowl Breeders Association for Visayas Region.
