To augment their meager income and to have source of meat supply essential for the performance of rituals, residents of Sagada also engage in small-scale swine-raising. Almost all households in Sagada raise chickens and hogs.

Data in 2005 show that 12,777 heads of chicken and 4,852 pigs were raised that year. There were also 539 heads of carabaos and 349 cows.

Other fowl raised included ducks, turkey and geese. These are sold only during emergencies, i.e., sickness, death and rice shortage.

The land use of the four zones shows a pastolan in every zone. Cattle are raised by a few households and each household own only a few cattle (PHSSA 2007, 66-69)
