Hog raising is a very popular enterprise in the Philippines because there is a proliferation of backyard producers which dominate the swine industry and a healthy viable commercial sector.
Traditionally, Filipino consumes more pork, which is roughly 60% of all kinds of meat combined. The derived annual per capita consumption of pork was 15.07 kilogram excluding offal and processed meat. Most of the remaining operations are large, are mechanized, and use the modern science for the selection, breeding, nutrition, and health care of their animals.
Producing milk by dairy animals as a food for human is only secondary to providing feed for the nourishment and sustenance of its offspring. IDFA (2003) discussed that the milk is about 87% water and 13% solids. The fat portion of the milk contains fat soluble vitamins. The solids other than fat include proteins, carbohydrates, water soluble vitamins and minerals.
Poultry production is characterized in most countries by a high level of vertical coordination generally through production contracts between poultry growers and processor, although in some countries some degree of pure vertical integration may also involved with the processor operating part or all of the poultry farms.
