This video presentation is part three of a five part series on the economics of family poultry production. It explains the difference between the terms production and productivity and the principle of gross margin analysis. The different elements of inputs and outputs in production are described and an example is given on how to calculate the outputs from a poultry unit, including the difference between fixed and variable costs incurred on poultry production.

The content of the video was prepared by Prof. Dr. Jonathan Rushton for Associate Poultry Advisers as part of a training programme organized by FAO in cooperation with IFAD.
