Farmers want higher price for chicken and eggs

January 15, 2020

Indonesia’s National Layer Farmers Association (PLN) is asking the government to raise the reference price of chicken and eggs. The increase in the reference price is to offset the increase in the price of corn since end 2019. “The reference price for chicken and eggs is still USD 1.28- 1.42/kg. Our reference price should have raised because the price of corn is also rising,” Musbar, President of PLN said. The sellers of corn have raised prices from the usual maximum of USD 0.32/kg  to USD 0.37/kg.
