Guidelines to Valuing Ostrich

How to value ostrich when starting out or purchasing breeder stock is extremely important.

A strong commercial environment and good farm records are required to support the establishment of market value.

The only method currently used for valuing Ostrich is the “WPWP” system (“What People are Willing to Pay”). Anyone who has owned ostrich in a country after their breeder market has collapsed will have experienced prices that were several thousand dollars or even 10s of thousands of Dollars and finally having difficulty giving their birds away.

The Bird Valuation document has been published by the World Ostrich Association (WOA) and is available free to members. There is a small charge of £12.50 to non-members.

You can join the WOA for a membership fee of £60.00 per annum.
