This Chicken Situation Report presents the chicken industry in terms of volume of production, inventory by type, and average farmgate price.

Concepts and Definitions
Volume of production refers to the volume of locally-raised chicken disposed for dressing including those which were shipped out to other regions/provinces 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.
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 is not included in the farmgate prices.
