This Duck Situation Report presents the duck industry in terms of volume of production, inventory by farm type, and average farmgate prices. The report is prepared to serve as a ready reference for our 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 the specific reference date. For this report, the inventory of duck is as of 01 January 2021.
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.
