Bird Flu

The prices had fallen drastically a few weeks ago following the cases of Bird Flu reported in northern parts of the country.

Industry sources say that the prices have recovered a fortnight ago during Onam celebrations in Kerala.

Rough estimate

According to a rough estimate, nearly 15 lakh broiler birds a week have been transported to neighbouring Kerala from various parts of Tamil Nadu, mostly from Palladam and Udumalpet region.

Farm gate prices

The farm gate price of the birds now crossed Rs.31 a kg.

While the farm gate prices of broiler birds back to normal, the rates of maize, an important feed for the poultry industry, is on the downside.
