This Duck Situation Report presents the duck industry in terms of volume of production, inventory by region, and average farmgate prices. The report is prepared to serve as a ready reference for Philippine Statistics Authority’s various clients and stakeholders in the agriculture sector. It is released quarterly; that is, every February, May, August, and November.
Concepts and Definitions
Volume of production refers to the volume of locally raised animals disposed for dressing including those which were shipped out to other regions/provinces for dressing. This is expressed in thousand metric tons, liveweight.
Inventory refers to the actual number of duck present in the farm as of a specific reference date. For this report, the inventory data is as of 01 October 2021 covering backyard farms only. This is the result of the redesigned Backyard Livestock and Poultry Survey on which data collection is being conducted quarterly. Meanwhile, the Commercial Livestock and Poultry Survey is still conducted biannual, i.e., January and July.
Farmgate price refers to the price received by raisers for their produce at the location of farm. Thus, the marketing cost, such as transport and other marketing costs (if any) incurred in selling the produce, are not included in the farmgate prices. The 2019 to 2021 farmgate prices included in this special release were based on the revised method of computation by the Price Statistics Division.
