Poultry and pig farming represent by far the major proportion of the livestock industry in terms of output value. The 2020 ex-farm production value of chicken and duck eggs was estimated to be RM5,502.96 million and poultry meat output are estimated to be in the region of RM11,5680.08 million while the pig industry contributes about RM4,033.47 million during that year. These sub-sectors are operated largely in a commercially oriented manner and are managed as public or private limited companies.

Apart from the above there is also niche farming activities to produce duck meat and eggs and “kampung” (village) chickens to fill small but profitable market demands.

The country is a net exporter of chicken meat and eggs and is 91.62 percent self-sufficient in pork requirements.
