Concepts and Definitions
Volume of production refers to the volume of chicken egg disposed from locally-raised chicken including those table eggs which were shipped out to other region/province.
Inventory refers to the actual number of chicken layers and native chicken present in the farm as of a specific reference date.
Farmgate price refers to the price received by raisers for their produce at the location of farm. Thus, the marketing costs such as the transport and other marketing cost (if any) incurred in selling the produce is not included in the farmgate prices.
