This Chicken Situation Report presents the chicken industry in terms of volume of production, inventory by type, and average farmgate price. The report is prepared to serve as a ready reference for the various clients and stakeholders in the agriculture sector of the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA). It is released quarterly; that is, every February, May, August, and November.
Concepts and Definitions
Volume of production refers to the number of tended/raised chicken disposed for dressing including those which were shipped out for dressing. This is expressed in metric tons, liveweight.
Inventory refers to the actual number of chicken present in the farm as of a specific reference date. The reference date for 2020 to 2021 data was changed to 31 March instead of 01 April to be consistent with the reference quarter.
Farmgate price refers to the price received by raisers for their produce at the location of farm. Thus, marketing costs, such as transport and other marketing cost (if any) incurred in selling the produce, are not included in the farmgate prices. The 2020 to 2021 farmgate prices included in this special release were sourced from the Price Statistics Division (PSD), while the 2022 farmgate prices were based on the surveys of Livestock and Poultry Statistics Division (LPSD).
