US - Energy policy has cost the US poultry sector $44 billion since 2007, a leading industry organisation has announced.

This is ahead of the federal government resolving to lower the Renewable Fuels Standard for 2014, reports Capital Press.

The National Chicken Council asserts that chicken producers have been unable to step up production this year to their annual average because of rippling effects from the federal ethanol policy and that consumers are paying the price.
