All heads up high for Capiz livestock

by Jemin B. Guillermo

Roxas City (8 February) -- Capiz has more than 2.2 million heads of livestock as of January this year, says the Bureau of Agricultural Statistics (BAS) here.

Capiz BAS provincial head Eric Piansay disclosed that based on the latest inventory last month, the province has 162,200 heads of hogs, 16,770 heads of cattle and 54,287 heads of carabao.

Piansay added that based on said inventory, there are also 46,429 heads of goat with more than 1.7 million and 147,448 heads of chicken and ducks, respectively.

Agriculture Secretary Arthur Yap earlier disclosed that the Philippine Agriculture grew 4.68 percent in 2007, hitting the government's original target of a 4.5 to 5.0 percent full-year expansion range.

Yap said that the livestock and poultry production managed to surpass the previous year's levels.

The gross value of livestock and poultry production shot up, respectively, by 5.04 percent to P163.2 billion and by 6.77 percent to P117.7 billion in 2007 at current prices, he said.

Meanwhile, the prevailing price of pork, chicken and beef in the public markets of Roxas City increased by P10.00 per kilogram. (PIA) [top]
