Livestock and Poultry Sector, 2011 (No Available Data for Year 2016)

The livestock and poultry sector of Santa Rosa is composed of backyard animal raisers in 7 out of the 18 8arangays of the City (Sinalhan, Aplaya, Caingin, Macabling, Pulong Sta. Cruz, Sto. Domingo and Ibaba). Livestock animals comprise mainly hogs, some goats (meat type) and a few cattle. Carabao production for dairy ceased more than a decade age. and production is mainly for use in farm work. The livestock in the City of Santa Rosa decreased much more i n 2011, compared to the 25.27 decrease in 1998. Rapid industrial growth and urbanization is the main cause of the decrease. Vanishing areas for pasture and loss of the so-called green areas or agricultural land contributed to the decline. These lands have been converted to non-agricultural use and mixed use. (T a b I e s 6. 9 and 6. 1 0 )

Remarkable declines have been observed for both chicken (broiler) and duck production in the past 12 years and have become a seasonal business endeavor for some of the residents. However, a marked increase in quail egg production and game fowl raising helped the poultry sector to thrive since no restrictions from the LGU was set.

I n add it ion to I and use c han g e , disastrous weather conditions (Typhoon Ondoy in September 2008 and habagat in 2010, 2011, 2012 paved the way for the decline in livestock and poultry production.
