TECHNICAL NOTES: 

This report presents the production performance of the poultry and egg industry of the region in terms of volume of production in 2018.

This describes the situation of poultry and egg industry in ARMM by providing comparative analyses of data on production between 2017 and 2018, among regions across Mindanao and among poultry products.

The data for this report were collected by the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) through the two (2) major surveys, namely:

1. The Backyard Livestock and Poultry Survey (BLPS) which covers one (1) of the four (4) replicate samples of the Palay and Corn Production Survey (PCPS). It consists of 15,069 sample households in 1,051 sample barangays nationwide; and,

2. The Commercial Livestock and Poultry Survey (CLPS) which covers 154 independent farms as of July 2017. A carabao farm is considered commercial when it has a capacity of at least 21 heads of adult carabaos.

Both surveys are conducted semi-annually (January and July) simultaneously in all provinces.

Another survey that supplements the statistical requirements of the livestock and poultry subsectors is the Survey of Slaughterhouses and Poultry Dressing Plants (SSHPDP). This covers around 1,387 Accredited (AAA and AA) and Locally Registered Meat Establishments (LRMEs) nationwide and is undertaken in coordination with the National Meat Inspection Service (NMIS).

Concept/s and Definition/s: 

Volume of Production - the volume of locally-raised animals disposed for slaughter which include animals shipped-out for slaughter. This is expressed in thousand metric tons, liveweight.
