Manok Mabuhay Project Manager Glenn Baticados has a choice to make — to continue to harvest for both the dressed and undressed chicken markets or to harvest for the dressed chicken market only. If the backyard chicken growing arrangement moves toward harvesting for the dressed chicken market only, operational difficulties for the live sales market could be avoided. But this decision entails the use of live bird crates, which are very expensive, and Baticados does not know what impact this cost will have on the project’s finances. Students are asked to assess the roles farmers, non-governmental organizations, and corporate partners play in the growing and harvesting processes as well as the financial implications of buying the chicken crates using cash flow analysis inclusive of both quantitative and qualitative data.
