May 16, 2019

The Livestock and Animal Health Agency in Bali, Indonesia plans to set up chicken slaughterhouses in Badung and Denpasar . I Wayan Mardiana, Head of the agency, said this will stabilize chicken prices and lower prices. He illustrated, the farm-gate price is USD 1.54/kg, but the price at consumer level is USD 2.65 although the ceiling price has been set by the Trade and Industry Agency at USD 2.37. With slaughterhouses, broiler farmers just need to think about the cost of transport and slaughter fee and reduce the role of middlemen in the supply chain,” he said.
