GOAT INDUSTRY PERFORMANCE REPORT

i

EXPLANATORY NOTES
The Goat Industry Performance Report presents the industry situation in terms of inventory by farm type and age classification; volume of production; supply and disposition; and monthly average prices at farmgate level. The Livestock and Poultry data system of the Bureau of Agricultural Statistics (BAS) is supported by 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) consisting of 9700 sample households in 673 sample barangays nationwide. 2) The Commercial Livestock and Poultry Survey (CLPS) which covers around 272 independent farms based on the January 2010 updated list. A goat farm is considered commercial when it has a farm capacity of at least 21 head of adult goat. Both surveys for goat are simultaneously conducted every semester in all provinces. Another survey that supports the statistical requirements of the livestock and poultry sector is the Survey of Animals Slaughtered in Abattoirs. This covers around 1,120 accredited and non-accredited abattoirs nationwide and is undertaken in coordination with the National Meat Inspection Service (NMIS).
