Poultry Farmers Facing Feed Shortage

Poultry Farmers Facing Feed Shortage Poultry Farmers Facing Feed Shortage

The shortage and consequently the exorbitant prices of poultry feed have phased out around 7,000 chicken farmers from the production cycle, says the secretary of Iran Chicken Farmers Union.
Parviz Foroughi also told Fars News Agency that the unaffordable prices of chicken feed in the past several months have led to the bankruptcy of many poultry farmers, steadily increasing chicken prices. 
Early in May, the Chicken Farmers Union said the shortage of poultry feed at subsidized prices has forced broiler chicken producers to procure at least half of their requirement at higher, open-market rates, causing a rise in chicken prices.
