In the Philippines, the sport of gamefowl, known as “sabong” or cockfighting, enjoys immense popularity and fuels a flourishing industry. According to the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR), this industry continues to expand, boasting an estimated annual worth of P50 billion.
Quoting Nicolas “Mang Nick” Crisostomo, president of the Luzon Gamefowl Breeders Association (LGBA), Sabong is not only a form of sport and entertainment for sabungeros but it also create livelihoods for those who are directly or indirectly engaged in the sport. Because of the popularity of the sport, businesses such as gamefarms and cockpit operators flourish. Other related enterprises down the line include the production, distribution, and retail of 1) gamefowl feeds, 2) veterinary medicines and supplements, 3) farm equipment, and 4) sports paraphernalia.
Gamefowl breeding and conditioning is a serious venture that requires utmost dedication and passion to consistently produce high-quality bloodlines and high-performance fighters. Farm owners invest heavily in breeding materials, in their farms, and last but not least, in gamefowl feeds and veterinary healthcare products. Such are key to managing a successful gamefarm.
